Edmund Optics® Provides UV-to-Near-IR Spectrometers
August 21, 2008. Barrington, NJ. Edmund Optics® announces new spectrometers with a wide dynamic range, superior quantum efficiency, and excellent signal-to-noise ratio. The instrument covers a spectral range from 190 nm to 1100 nm.
"The versatile back thinned CCD spectrometer is a cost effective solution for wide spectral measurements that are typically covered by multiple front illuminated CCD's," says Product Line Manager Amr Khalil. "The back thinned structure improves illumination level, thus increasing the CCD dynamic range and scan speed."
The spectrometer also minimizes stray light by incorporating a holographic aberration-corrected flat field concave grating and optimized optical bench, which reduces noise and improves throughput.
The spectrometer offers 2 nm (FWHM) spectral resolution, wavelength accuracy of ±0.5 nm and a slit width of 25 µm. Optical input can be supplied through an SMA905 connector. A plug-and-play USB interface provides ease of use, and the instrument is supplied with software that allows users to configure it for either a large dynamic range or high sensitivity operation.
