FREEDOM HR-DUV spectrometer – The ultra-compact solution for deep UV Spectroscopy

For immediate release

Press Release, Farum, September 1, 2015

Ibsen Photonics (, the global leader in fused silica transmission gratings and industrial grade spectrometer modules, today announced FREEDOM HRthe new FREEDOM HR-DUV spectrometer platform for integrators of compact analytical and process control instruments.

FREEDOM HR-DUV uses a new innovative transmission grating, developed and manufactured by Ibsen Photonics. In contrast to typical blazed gratings, this new grating provides high and nearly constant diffraction efficiency over the entire 178 – 409 nm range for both polarizations. Furthermore, the high resolution, small size, and environmental robustness make the HR-DUV spectrometer ideal for applications like handheld and portable Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) instruments.

“With the introduction of the deep UV spectrometer, we are taking full advantages of the UV-transparency and high efficiency of our fused Silica transmission gratings”, says Thomas Rasmussen, VP of Sales and Marketing, and adds “No other grating technology can achieve this high and broadband efficiency”.

The FREEDOM HR-DUV complements Ibsen’s current line of compact, high resolution OEM spectrometers in the UV, VIS and VIS-NIR.
