FREEDOM Spectrometers offer CMOS alternative to obsolete Sony CCD

We would like to take this opportunity to make you aware of the FREEDOM 101 series of spectrometers as an alternative to spectrometers using the obsolete Sony CCD.

The CMOS line array used in our FREEDOM 101 series has roughly the same cost, sensitivity, and noise performance as the Sony CCD option.

You can find more details in the technical note that highlights the results of comparative measurements we performed with the two detectors:

FREEDOM 101 series 


Ultra compact High resolution Wide bandwidth
Compact Raman Spectrometer

FREEDOM spectrometers combine compact size, cost efficiency, and high performance with flexibility in the choice of detector system and electronics.

These benefits make FREEDOM especially well-suited for integration into portable and handheld instruments.

FREEDOM supports the UV, VIS, and VIS-NIR ranges as well as the UV-VIS or UV-NIR. There is even a high resolution version of FREEDOM for applications like LIBS and Raman.
