Fiber Optic Spectrometer SILVER-Nova from StellarNet

StellarNets' SILVER-Nova high performance fiber optic spectrometer covers the 190 - 1110 nm wavelength range and is configured for demanding applications that require wide spectral range, high resolution and optimal sensitivity.

Application of the Fiber Optic Spectrometer

The fiber optic spectrometer SILVER-Nova is the most well rounded spectrometer choice allowing for research grade results for many spectroscopic applications. The spectrograph employs composite grating technology to deliver high efficiency in both the UV & NIR spectral extremes. The UV enhanced CCD detector with integrated TE cooler, gain enhancements, and optical lens assemblies allow for unparalleled sensitivity, with over 65 % increased signal to noise at long exposures. Advancements in fiber optic spectrometer SILVER-Nova design delivers 1 nm resolution with a 25 µm slit.

Advantages of the Fiber Optic Spectrometer

The portable instrument is packaged in a small rugged metal enclosure for use with single strand fiber optic input cable. The instrument attaches directly to a PC's high speed USB-2 port where it also derives its power. These units are vibration tolerant and are exceptionally robust with no internal adjustments or moving parts.

SpectraWiz software is included (free) to enable spectroscopy measurements (reflectance, transmission, absorption, and the many types of light emissions). Applications are included for SpectroColorimetry, SpectroRadiometry, Chemical concentrations, Material identification, analysis of UVabc components, event or reaction monitoring data capture & time series analysis.
