This blog features our extremely popular FREEDOM series of spectrometers using the latest CMOS detector technology. This combination of spectrometer and detector enables us to deliver highly sensitive and fast spectrometers with high resolution and low stray light in a very compact form factor.

Spectrometer FREEDOM 101

The FREEDOM 101 spectrometers provide sensitivity, accuracy, and speed that you have previously only been able to obtain with expensive CCD detectors. This is accomplished through the use of a new CMOS technology that offers roughly the same sensitivity as CCD sensors.

Our FREEDOM spectrometers combine compact size with high performance in terms of high resolution and low stray light. These benefits make all our FREEDOM spectrometers very well suited for integration into handheld and portable instruments.


Tech Note: Noise in Detectors
