McPherson makes monochromators and spectrometers as well as optical systems for spectroscopy.
We design, assemble and test instrumentation for many wavelengths; from soft x-ray and extreme ultraviolet, through vacuum ultraviolet and UV-Visible, and up to the long wave infrared. Our systems work in many applications and many science disciplines. We offer imaging spectrometers for high temperature plasma physics, Raman systems for physical-chemistry, HPLC fluorescence detectors for pharma, spectral calibration stations for astrophysics, and several types of spectrophotometers for material characterization. Ours is a product line complete with accessories for those who do it themselves. We offer light sources, detectors, filter wheels, specialty filters, fiber optics, telescopes, and collimators. Most of these are also available for vacuum and ultra high vacuum applications. The most respected research laboratories utilize our systems and publish data obtained with the help of our instruments; instruments that range from miniature spectrometers flown into space or fit into pockets, to versions that weigh 20 tons and span 30 meters. We also develop with and for you! We invite your inquiries for scientific instruments and systems that solve specific analytical challenges.
New White Paper from McPherson
The new grating extends the efficient range of the McPherson Model 251MX for more sensitive spectral acquisition. With a digital camera and adjustable slits it now works from 1 to 100 nanometers (10 to 1500 eV).
