Spectrograph System offers high-density multi-track imaging.

Press Release Summary:



Featuring F/1.8 aperture, Volume Phase Holographic grating-based Holospec provides optimized photon collection efficiency when combined with ultrasensitive detectors, such as Andor’s iDus 416 Low Dark Current Deep-Depletion CCD series. System offers aberration-corrected optics for multi-track capabilities. Applications include weak nanostructure photoluminescence, micro-Raman mapping, spectrally assisted microfluidics, real-time medical diagnosis, and stand-off chemical detection.

Andor Holospec: high throughput, high-density multi-track imaging spectrograph



Belfast, -- Andor Technology plc (Andor), a world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, today announced the launch of its new Spectroscopy detection solutions based on the high throughput imaging Holospec spectrograph. The Volume Phase Holographic (VPH) grating-based Holospec offers up to seven times better collection power than traditional 1/3rd m Czerny-Turner spectrograph with superb high-density multi-track spectroscopy properties. This enables superior photon collection efficiency when combined with Andor ultrasensitive detectors, e.g. Andor’s iDus 416 Low Dark Current Deep-Depletion (LDC-DD) CCD and single photon-sensitive Newton EMCCD series.



The Andor Holospec is the ideal solution for collecting more light and achieving better signal-to-noise ratio faster. This is critical for applications such as weak nanostructure photoluminescence, micro-Raman mapping (inc. TERS), spectrally-assisted microfluidics, real-time medical diagnosis, stand-off chemical detection and on-line process control. Its rugged and compact design makes the Holospec an ideal tool for challenging industrial or in-the-field applications, while still offering research-grade performance suitable for academic research.



Antoine Varagnat, Andor’s Spectroscopy Product Specialist said “High light collection efficiency and high density multi-track spectroscopy are usually mutually exclusive in traditional spectrographs. We are delighted to introduce the Andor Holospec to overcome this hurdle and take full advantage of Andor’s high sensitivity Spectroscopy detector portfolio to offer unrivalled low-light detection capabilities. The Holospec is the perfect complement to Andor’s high resolution Research-grade Shamrock spectrograph series.”
