New Spectrometers, Partnerships Take the Stage
Ocean Optics unveils a new slate of products and applications at the photonics industry’s largest event. Here’s a quick overview of what to expect at Booth 723 in San Francisco:
We’re so excited about our newest spectrometer that we’re keeping it under wraps until Photonics West kicks off on Tuesday, Jan. 30.
Among the newest technologies we will showcase are a handheld light meter, MIR spectrometer and multispectral camera.
- WaveGo from Wave Illumination offers simple yet accurate characterization of light sources. Paired with a smartphone app, the handheld device measures absolute irradiance, lux, color temperature and other parameters.
- The MZ5 ATR-MIR (attenuated total reflectance-mid-infrared) system expands our offering to the wavelength region from 5.5-11 µm, enabling applications such as detection of adulterants in milk and analysis of fuels including oil.
- PixelCam is a multispectral camera for live imaging of up to 9 bands at video rates. At the show, we’ll demonstrate a 4-band VIS-NIR setup in a simulated tissue monitoring application.
Ocean Optics is more than a components supplier, offering our experience and know-how to partner with customers on solutions for a diverse range of applications. One such solution is a gas analysis system from Gencoa, a vacuum coatings solutions provider:
Gencoa’s Optix Optical RGA is a multi-purpose gas analysis instrument that performs direct, high-pressure gas monitoring from 0.4 to 1×10-6 torr, without a differential pumping system. Its robust design, coupled with the reliability and power of Ocean Optics spectral systems, eases characterization of difficult-to-manage processes such as PECVD, ALD and etching.
- No pumps, bellows or filaments
- Contaminating environments
- Atmospheric sampling
Optix generates a small plasma within the sensor head, which is analyzed by its built-in Ocean Optics spectrometer. The light spectrum is automatically interpreted to provide qualitative measurement of the presence and concentration of gas within the vacuum.
