The Zion camera from the US manufacturer Jireh Scientific was specially developed for low-noise spectroscopy applications. The CCD detector with 1024x256 pixels measures 26.6 mm in width and 6.7 mm in height. Due to the thermoelectric cooling of up to 95 °C below the ambient temperature, a dark current of less than 0.0018 e/pix/sec is achieved. This makes the camera ideally suited for applications with low light conditions such as fluorescence, DNA sequencing or optical measurement of biological materials.
