C12666MA micro-spectrometer

Hamamatsu Photonics has developed what the company claim is the ‘world’s smallest’ micro-spectrometer. The fingertip-sized spectrometer is an ultra-compact, lightweight and low-cost device which, according to Hamamatsu’s research, provides nearly the same performance as Hamamatsu’s MS series mini-spectrometer while being roughly half its size.

The new C12666MA micro-spectrometer offers measurement in the visible wavelength range, and can be used for applications such as colour sensing in printing machines and LED lighting, point-of-care testing connected to smartphones, and other types of portable measurement.
