Hi,

Cern Courier (IOP) are running a free webinar with the subject "Fast and sensitive camera technologies for astronomy" if anybody's interested.

The recent introduction of true scientific CMOS (sCMOS) cameras has caused considerable speculation as to how CCD, Electron Multiplying CCD (EMCCD) and sCMOS detection technologies compare. sCMOS is a new high-performance imaging technology that can be considered progressive in its simultaneous ability to offer extremely low-noise, rapid frame rates, wide dynamic range, high resolution and a large field of view, overcoming many performance trade-offs that are commonly associated with CCD detectors. EMCCDs, however, retain the advantage of single-photon sensitivity and often remain the best choice for extremely low-light imaging.

This webinar will discuss and clarify the key sensor characteristics along with the key camera enhancements that must be considered when selecting the optimum solution for astronomy application and instrumentation.
Registration is required.

It's free.
