Ocean Optics has introduced the NIRQuest512-2.5 near-infrared spectrometer, which offers response of 900-2,500nm for laser characterisation and applications requiring longer integration times.

A high-stability, 512-element Hamamatsu Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs)-array detector doubles the amount of pixels previously available in the 900-2,500nm range, significantly increasing optical resolution.

Depending on the user-selected configuration of grating options and optical bench entrance slit size, optical resolution as good as 4.1-6.3nm (FWHM) is possible.

The lower overall dark noise of the system enables longer integration times, which is especially useful in low-light-level environments.

Users are able to capture data when an external event occurs, or to trigger an event after data acquisition, with the spectrometer’s external hardware triggering functions.

Spectrometer operation is controlled using Spectrasuite software, a modular, Java-based spectroscopy platform.

In addition, NIRQuest512-2.5 can be bundled with the Remora Network Adapter from Ocean Optics to turn the system into a multi-user spectral data server over Ethernet or existing Wi-Fi connection.

Our success

Recognized as the inventor of miniature fibre optic spectroscopy, we’ve sold more than 150,000 spectrometers worldwide since 1989. As a result of the dramatic reduction in size and cost, applications once deemed too costly or impractical using conventional spectrometers were not only feasible, but practical. Nowadays our spectrometers can be found anywhere: on treetops in jungles, on oil rigs at sea, on rocket ships in space and even inside the human body.
