Light from a fiber enters the optical bench through the SMA 905 Connector. The SMA 905 bulkhead provides a precise location for the end of the optical fiber, fixed slit, absorbing filter and fiber clad mode aperture.

Slit PieceLight passes through the installed slit, which acts as the entrance aperture. Slits come in various widths from 5 µm to 200 µm. The slit is fixed in the SMA 905 bulkhead to sit against the end of a fiber. Smaller slit sizes achieve the best optical resolution.

 

 

Slit Description Pixel Resolution
SLIT-5 5-µm wide x 1-mm high ~3.0 pixels
SLIT-10 10-µm wide x 1-mm high ~3.2 pixels
SLIT-25 25-µm wide x 1-mm high ~4.2 pixels
SLIT-50 50-µm wide x 1-mm high ~6.5 pixels
SLIT-100 100-µm wide x 1-mm high ~12 pixels
SLIT-200 200-µm wide x 1-mm high ~24 pixels

If selected, an absorbing filter is installed between the slit and the clad mode aperture in the SMA 905 bulkhead. The filter is used to limit bandwidth of light entering spectrometer or to balance color. Filters are installed permanently.

The collimating mirror is matched to the 0.22 numerical aperture of our optical fiber. Light reflects from this mirror, as a collimated beam, toward the grating. You can opt to install a standard mirror or a UV absorbing SAG+ mirror.

SAG+ mirrors are often specified for fluorescence. These mirrors also absorb nearly all UV light, which reduces the effects of excitation scattering in fluorescence measurements. Unlike typical silver-coated mirrors, the SAG+ mirrors won’t oxidize. They have excellent reflectivity — more than 95% across the VIS-NIR.

GratingsWe install the grating on a platform that we then rotate to select the starting wavelength you have specified. Then we permanently fix the grating in place to eliminate mechanical shifts or drift.

This mirror focuses first-order spectra on the detector plane. Both the collimating and focusing mirrors are made in-house to guarantee the highest reflectance and the lowest stray light possible. You can opt to install a standard or SAG+ mirror.

Detector Collection LensThis cylindrical lens is fixed to the detector to focus the light from the tall slit onto the shorter detector elements. It increases light-collection efficiency and reduces stray light. It also is useful in a configuration with a large-diameter fiber for low light-level applications.

We offer a 2048-element (Sony ILX511B) linear CCD array detector with an effective range of 200-1100 nm. Each pixel responds to the wavelength of light that strikes it. Electronics bring the complete spectrum to the software.

Our proprietary filters precisely block second- and third-order light from reaching specific detector elements.
