High Resolution Spectrometer

Spectrometer specialist McPherson introduces a new high-resolution spectrometer system with Pico meter resolution capability.

McPherson high-resolution spectrometer

The 1.3-meter focal length McPherson Model 209 spectrometer with new micro-step drive can make wavelength steps as small as 0.1 Pico meters. Software control is simplified since the wavelength steps are linear for uniform moves over 1000’s of nanometers free spectral range. The new models also support homing for wavelength calibration.

With array detectors, spectral resolution is dictated by the sensors’ pixel size and spectrometers focal length. Micro-step scans deliver superior performance and meet or exceed prior published specifications.

All McPherson spectrometers are easy to use and can be systems’ integrated. All are available with the special micro-step controller with an extensive software package. The step motor controller accepts ASCII commands. The user can specify speed, direction, and step size increment with software commands. LabVIEW™ libraries and program examples for text-based programming are available.

If you need even more spectral-resolution or dispersion on your pixel size limited camera, spectrometers with 2m focal length are available; so are double-pass and extreme dispersion instruments. In these, the light beam circuits the instruments optics twice, doubling performance specifications while maintaining the aperture ratio. These features can bring the longest standard focal length to four meters for UV-Visible and IR applications. Let us try to help you reach your analytical goals.

    Amplifier on Vacuum-safe Ceramic Board

    Products | 22 Apr 2016

    McPherson VUV series photodiodes are used for the detection of UV, EUV and x-ray (wavelength range 1100 nm to .124 nm, energy range 1.13 eV to 1 keV) photons. Unlike common p-n junction diodes, the photodiodes do not have a doped dead-region and have zero surface recombination.

  • Sensor Spectral Test and Calibration

    Products | 8 Dec 2015

    The McPherson Spectral Test Station (STS) is for wavelength testing and calibration from LWIR to 200 nanometers and less. It is for sensor testing, process control, and calibration. It also works for ground-based calibration of flight sensors.

    New Adjustable 10,000 Volt Power Supply

    Products | 30 Sep 2015

    We are pleased to announce that the McPherson high-voltage power supply series now features a 10,000 Volt configuration. The 10-kilovolt model joins the already popular one, two and 5-kilovolt versions. We use these power supplies for many purposes in the laboratory.
