Introducing the new PEAK XNIR Spectrometer
– DLP® Technology-Based Innovation from Ibsen Photonics

For immediate release

Press Release – Farum, September 30, 2020

Ibsen Photonics (, the global leader in fused silica transmission gratings and industrial grade spectrometer modules, today announced the release of a new and innovative OEM spectrometer called PEAK XNIR that features DLP® Pico™ technology from Texas Instruments.

The PEAK XNIR offers a very high throughput due to a retroreflective advanced optical design, a high efficiency transmission grating, and a high NA of 0.22. The retroreflective design allows for a compact form factor of approximately 63 mm x 50 mm x 77 mm with high resolution and sensitivity as well as environmental ruggedness. The wavelength range is 1650 – 2400 nm, and the resolution of 10 nm is one of the best for this type of spectrometer on the market.

“The PEAK platform enables a whole new dimension of programmability in your spectroscopic instruments that has not been possible with any other spectrometer technology on the market”, says Thomas Rasmussen, VP of Business Development and Sales & Marketing at Ibsen Photonics.

The PEAK XNIR is supplied with control electronics and uses Ibsen’ XNIR Evaluation Software for Windows with advanced column and Hadamard scan functions for improved signal to noise ratio. You can program your own software using an HDI standard interface and read/write operations to the FPGA register.

PEAK utilizes Ibsen’s high efficiency fused silica transmission gratings combined with the DLP technology from Texas Instruments in order to provide the spectral programmability.

“Near infrared spectroscopy designers are being challenged to develop applications that can quickly gather detailed material information with high throughput and a high degree of accuracy,” said Frank Moizio, general manager of TI DLP Pico display and light control. “Ibsen was able to utilize DLP technology as a programmable wavelength selector in Ibsen’s new PEAK XNIR spectrometer platform to help gather real-time measurements with up to 10 nm accuracy.”

Another benefit of using our transmission gratings is that PEAK can be manufactured in high quantities with very small unit-to-unit performance variation. With PEAK XNIR, manufacturers of process analytical tools for biopharmaceuticals and food production no longer have to compromise on performance.
