Stanford Computer Optics, Inc, founded in 1989, is a developer and manufacturer of intensified CCD (ICCD) camera systems for scientific and R&D applications. Stanford Computer Optics was founded by the current president Paul Höß and has become, with the experience of more than 20 years, one of the main manufacturers of short-gated intensified charge-coupled device (ICCD) cameras.

The specific focus of Stanford Computer Optics is in ultra fast gating ICCD cameras. The 4 Picos ICCD camera system has a gating time of down to 200 picoseconds.[1]

There is a wide range of applications for ICCD cameras such as low light imaging, ultra fast imaging and time-resolved spectroscopy.

In 2003, Stanford Computer Optics introduced the multi-framing camera, XXRapidFrame. A framing camera consists of multiple individual ICCD cameras which can be triggered individually either simultaneously or with an inter-framing delay. This allows image sequences of up to 8 images, at a rate of several billion frames per second. In 2013, Stanford Computer Optics introduced the 6- and 8-channel intensified CCD framing camera, XXRapidFrame.[2][3]
