The PHURONA brings you all the interesting specifications of a 12 megapixel CMOS sensor now also for the side-entry port of your TEM.

Our 12 megapixel TEM CMOS camera PHURONA (model S12U) for the typical side-entry port ("35mm") of a TEM provides up to 20 frames per second in its full 12 megapixel resolution, using a fast USB 3.0 interface to the computer. It can reach up to 50 frames per second in 2x binning, which gives the user still a high enough resolution to watch fast moving details, e.g. for quick screening of a sample in a TEM.

The distortion minimized and custom designed lens ensures high light transfer efficiency and together with the sensitive camera electronics it makes observations at even low light conditions easily possible.

The PHURONA is the perfect side­-entry camera, either for exclusive use or as an add-on camera for an existing bottom-mount camera, providing a larger field of view.

Movie recording, smart averaging, Click-­to­-center™, high­-dynamic range imaging (HDRI) ­- all come with the sophisticated state of the art imaging software RADIUS.

The latest CMOS technology of the PHURONA brings to you speed, sensitivity, high dynamic range and a large field of view. The CMOS image sensor shows no blooming and hence is all best suited also for diffraction images.

The PHURONA is the choice for customers looking for a fast and easy to use side entry camera with high image quality and a large field of view.
