Shimadzu's UV-3600 Plus UV-VIS-NIR Spectrophotometer Offers High-Sensitivity, High-Resolution Analyses for a Wide Range of Applications
COLUMBIA, Md. – Incorporating the latest technology to achieve high sensitivity, high resolution and an ultra-low stray light level, Shimadzu’s new UV-3600 Plus UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer offers scientists an opportunity to provide high-performance analyses in a wealth of applications.
The UV-3600 Plus UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer is equipped with three detectors — PMT (photomultiplier tube) for ultraviolet and visible regions, and InGaAs and cooled PbS detectors for the near-infrared region — to ensure high sensitivity across the entire measured wavelength range. Compared to spectrophotometers with only PMT and PbS detectors, the UV-3600 Plus significantly reduces noise level to assure high-accuracy measurements across the entire wavelength range.
The instrument’s high-performance double monochromator makes it possible to attain an ultra-low stray light level (0.00005% max at 340 nm) with high resolution. The wide wavelength range of 185 to 3,300 nm enables measurement across the ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared regions.
Additionally, the UV-3600 offers a three-detector, multi-purpose, large-sample compartment and integrating sphere options, which enable high-sensitivity measurement of solid samples. A large number of absolute specular reflectance accessories are available to perform high-accuracy absolute reflectance measurements. Temperature-controlled cell holders and micro cell holders are also available to handle a wide range of measurement applications.
The UV-3600 Plus offers high-resolution analysis in the following application areas: materials science, including photovoltaics, electronics, optical coatings, and textiles; food science; pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and life sciences; and chemicals.
The all-in-one UVProbe software is equipped with four measurement modes to handle a wide variety of data processing needs for the UV-3600 Plus, such as peak detection and area calculations in addition to transformations such as derivative spectra and Kubelka-Munk transforms for reflectance measurements. These modes include a spectrum module, a photometric module (quantitation), a kinetics module (time course management), and a report generator. Optional software is also available for users who wish to perform measurements such as color analysis, solar transmittance, band gap, and film thickness.
