The science behind the image

Photonic Science is proud to have developed state-of-the-art scientific cameras and systems for over 100 international research institutes throughout the world. With over 30 years experience we can provide customised cameras and systems that range from X-ray, Neutron, visible, NIR and SWIR as well as Laue diffraction systems.

Using the latest sensors, including sCMOS, CCD, SWIR (InGaAs) and intensified our cameras can be used in a range of demanding applications, including; x-ray diffraction, hyperspectral imaging, crystal growth and orientation, low light imaging, astronomy and confocal microscopy.

Life science imaging

Our SWIR InGaAs and sCMOS cameras are used across the globe to assist scientists in cutting edge life science research

Electron microscopy

Our state-of-the-art indirect X-ray cameras are used to capture the smallest details for the world’s leading electron microscopy organisations.


With high dynamic range and sensitivity our sCMOS cameras enables short exposures to be taken with negligible read out noise
