Spectrometer Evaluation Tools

iPhoneYou probably from time to time need to do some quick evaluation of various optical designs for a spectroscopic system. And you don’t want to spend days on running a full numerical calculation tool like Zemax or CODES.

Very often, you need to cover a specific wavelength range with a certain resolution, and want to evaluate how different detector widths, grating groove densities and image magnifications will ...

Precision Control Over Your Spectrometer

– a Necessity for Your LIBS Instrument

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is an extremely versatile spectroscopic technique which can be used to analyze the atomic composition of virtually any material. In a LIBS system, a short laser pulse is used to ablate material from the surface of a sample. The laser pulse energy will be high enough to create bright plasma on the surface of the sample.

Scaling of wavelength range in transmission grating based spectrometers

 

This note describes how an existing spectrometer wavelength range can be scaled by changing the groove density of the transmission grating, without needing to change other aspects of the design. The starting point is a known spectrometer with a grating with groove density G0, detector width LD, and covering the wavelength range λmax,0 – λmin,0.
 
The focal length of this spectrometer is given by:  ...

How to Obtain a Large Absorbance Range

 

Absorbance spectroscopy is a molecular spectroscopy method that uses the wavelength dependent absorption characteristics of materials to identify and quantify specific substances.

Many molecules absorb ultraviolet or visible light emitted from a broadband light source. The absorbance is related to the concentration of the materials in the sample such that stronger absorbance means higher concentration.

Absorption Spectroscopy

There are many different approaches for measuring absorption ...
