Astrophysical Observations in the SWIR

SIRIS is the most versatile SWIR camera on the market. SIRIS provides high-speed full-frame (200fps) images with ultra-low read-out noise (10e-). Two read-out modes, full linear and linear/logarithmic, allows for 120 dB dynamic, which, together with the low noise level, results in hyper contrast images. The cryogenic-free, vibration-free deep cooler with permanent vacuum, makes SIRIS the perfect tool for scientific observations requiring integrability and transportability.

The following images have been taken during several measurement campaigns at the Observatory Pic du Midi in collaboration with the Physics Laboratory of the Ecole Normale Supérieure. Thanks to the expertise of the scientists leading the campaigns, Dr. David Darson (ENS) and Dr. François Colas (Pic du Midi), and the high-end performances of SIRIS, the campaigns resulted in exceptional images, that path the way to reveal previously unreachable astrophysical observations with comparable equipment. All the images have been taken at the telescope T1M.
