Spectrometers are used to measure the properties of light for a variety of spectrometry applications including environmental or chemical analysis, fluorescence, or Raman. Spectrometers are optical instruments that incorporate detectors to detect spectral lines and measure their wavelength or intensity. Spectrometers are ideal for determining compositional makeup for detecting weak light signals. Spectrometers can also be used to test the efficiency of an optical filter in order to determine whether a filter has properly blocked or transmitted specific wavelengths.
Edmund Optics offers a wide variety of Spectrometers, including Spectrometers that have been optimized for Raman or fluorescence spectroscopy. Raman Spectrometers are ideal for Raman applications in the visible to the near infrared. The Fluorescence Spectrometers are ideal for use in low light fluorescence applications where the ability to detect weak signals is crucial for proper measurement. Additionally, fluorescence Spectrometers feature broadband spectral response ranges for detecting wide wavelength bands along with a wide slit width for increased throughput.
