StellarNet's BLUE-Wave Spectrometers measure in the UV-VIS-NIR wavelength ranges from 190-1150nm. Fifteen different models provide configurations for a variety of spectral ranges and resolutions with dispersive optics imaging to a 2048 element CCD detector array.
The instruments have SMA-905 fiber optic input with a high speed USB-2 computer interface. An integrated 16-bit digitizer and spectral memory produce a signal-to-noise ratio of 1000:1 with conversion as fast as 1ms.
The BLUE-Wave promises exceptional robustness, using a vibration tolerant modular design with no moving parts or sockets for extreme reliability. Up to 8 instruments can be run simultaneously via USB hub. When powered by USB, the instruments can be externally triggered for demanding applications such as laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). Its small size and light weight is perfect for portable and OEM applications.
Measurement applications include spectroradiometry for emission wavelength monitoring and characterization of LEDs and tunable lasers, chemical analysis via absorbance and fluorescence, color QC via reflectance, thin film thickness measurements, transmission analysis of optics, and fiber optic sensing.
