StellarNet has launched its BLUE-Wave spectrometer.
BLUE-Wave measures in the UV-VIS-NIR wavelength ranges from 190-1,150nm.
Fifteen models provide configurations for a variety of spectral ranges and resolutions with dispersive optics imaging to a 2,048 element CCD detector array.
The instruments have SMA-905 fiber optic input with a USB-2 computer interface.
An integrated 16-bit digitiser and spectral memory produce a signal to noise of 1,000:1 with conversion times down to 1ms.
StellarNet said the BLUE-Wave is robust and utilises a vibration tolerant modular design with no moving parts or sockets for reliability.
Up to eight instruments can be run simultaneously via USB hub.
Powered by USB, the instruments can be externally triggered for applications such as LIBS.
The company added that BLUE-Wave's small size and weight makes it suitable for portable and OEM applications.
Measurement applications include spectroradiometry for emission wavelength monitoring and characterisation of LEDs and tunable lasers, chemical analysis via absorbance and fluorescence, color QC via reflectance, thin film thickness measurements, transmission analysis of optics and fiber optic sensing.
