Press Release, Farum, December 9, 2014

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

The FREEDOM combines compact size, cost efficiency, and high performance with flexibility in the choice of detector system. These benefits make FREEDOM especially well-suited for integration into portable and handheld instruments.

The key benefits of the new FREEDOM UV-VIS are: high efficiency across the complete 190 – 850 nm range, ultra compact size of 48 x 54 x 16 mm, robust and athermal performance, and flexibility in choice of detector and electronics.

The high broadband efficiency is obtained with a new innovative transmission grating, developed and manufactured by Ibsen Photonics. In contrast to typical blazed gratings, this new grating provides nearly constant diffraction efficiency over the 190 – 850 nm range for both polarizations. The small size, athermal performance, and robustness make the UV-VIS spectrometer ideal for process control out-of-the-lab environments as well as handheld and portable instruments.

FREEDOM UV-VIS comes in three standard variants with either a low cost front-illuminated CCD, a low noise back-thinned CCD, or a high sensitivity CMOS but, more detector options are available upon request.
