About us
Greateyes was founded in year 2008 as a spin-off from Humboldt-University Berlin and then quickly developed to an international acting company. Today it has strong customers in research and industry from many different countries.

Greateyes develops, manufactures and markets high-performance scientific cameras. They are used as precise detectors in a wide range of imaging and spectroscopy applications. Furthermore the company manufactures electroluminescence and photoluminescence inspection systems for the solar industry.


Straight out of Berlin comes ALEX, greateyes' new platform for your spectroscopy applications in the VUV, EUV, soft and hard X-Ray range.

ALEX integrates cutting-edge low-noise electronics and ultra-deep cooling technology while keeping a compact camera design. Multiple readout speeds can be selected supporting pixel rates from 50 kHz up to 5 MHz. True 18-bit AD conversion allows to exploit the full dynamic range of the CCD sensor for highest performance and SNR. ALEX is ideally suited for detection of very weak signal intensities where a low-noise floor is paramount. ALEX offers unprecedented possibilities for your measurements of tomorrow. The nanoscopic soft X-ray image of a diatom on the front page was made by the group for Imaging and Coherent X-rays of Max Born Institute in collaboration with the X-ray microscopy division of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (BESSY).
