Ocean SR spectrometers provide high-speed spectral acquisition and deliver great signal-to-noise performance for low-concentration and other measurements. 

SR series UV-Visible spectrometers are produced using industry-leading manufacturing techniques, ensuring high thermal stability and low unit-to-unit variation without compromising the configurability.

Spectroscopy and Sustainability Research with Biko Biolabs

For Ocean Insight 2020 Grant Program award winner Biko Biolabs, LLC (Cambridge, Mass., USA), spectral sensing is an important tool in the company’s efforts to remediate plastic waste through bulk electro-oxidation techniques. In this interview, Biko founder Kelsey Sakimoto shares his thoughts on the challenges of taking on environmental plastic pollution. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.




Why is dealing with pollution from plastics such a daunting task?

How optical sensing delivers solutions to industrial customers

Dr. Steve Buckley, Business Unit General Manager for Applied Systems at Ocean Insight, shares his insights on the many ways spectroscopy and optical sensing technologies can be used to help customers solve measurement challenges across diverse industries and applications.

Plasma monitoring with modular, high-resolution spectroscopy

This article is brought to you by: 

A modular spectroscopy setup based on an Ocean Insight HR series high resolution spectrometer was used to monitor changes in argon plasma emission following the introduction of different gases to a plasma chamber. The measurements demonstrated the viability of modular spectroscopy components to acquire plasma emission spectra in real time from a plasma chamber. Plasma characteristics determined from these emission spectra can be used for monitoring and controlling plasmabased processes.
