Wavelength calibration sources from Ocean Optics offer convenience and reliability
Largo, Florida, USA (March 29, 2019) – Ocean Optics, the applied spectral knowledge company, has released a new line of spectrometer wavelength calibration sources for convenient, reliable spectrometer calibration. The (-2) model series of calibration sources spans UV to NIR wavelengths, allowing users to maximize spectrometer performance and maintain the integrity of their results.
Each wavelength calibration source has an embedded, rechargeable battery for use without an external power supply; offers remote on/off operation to avoid disturbing experiment setups; and uses indicator LEDs to provide quick confirmation of battery charge and lamp activation.
Routine spectrometer wavelength calibration is essential to correct for baseline drift and other spectral phenomena inherent to all spectrometers. Each (-2) series model produces known atomic emission lines for performing spectrometer wavelength calibration. Options include mercury-argon (253-1700 nm), krypton (427-893 nm), neon (540-754 nm), argon (696-1704 nm) and xenon (916-1984 nm) gas-discharge emission sources. With more wavelength options and emission lines to utilize, users can more readily choose a source, or combination of sources, to match analytical wavelengths of interest within the measurement range.
Ocean Optics is the applied spectral knowledge company, partnering with customers to solve a wide range of application challenges using optical sensing technologies. With locations in the Americas, Europe and Asia, the company has sold more than 300,000 spectrometers worldwide since 1992. Ocean Optics’ extensive line of complementary technologies includes UV-Visible, NIR, mid-IR and Raman spectrometers; chemical sensors; analytical instrumentation; multispectral cameras and imaging systems; and optical fibers and components. The company is a subsidiary of Halma plc, a global group of life-saving technology companies.
