Congratulations, Trappist South!
ESO recently discovered several Earth-like exo-planets orbiting the star 'TRAPPIST 1'
using an FLI ProLine back-illuminated CCD camera! The planets made international news
as they represent the best targets found thus far in the search for life outside of our solar
FLI offers a wide range of high-performance, low-noise cooled cameras for a wide range of
applications. Choose from interline, frame-transfer, front & back-illuminated CCDs. Coming
soon, our Kepler cooled cameras with front & back-illuminated scientific CMOS sensors.
Read noise as low as 1.3 electrons!
