Fergie spectroscopy system

Share this on social media:

Princeton Instruments has launched the Fergie spectroscopy system, a fully integrated, aberration-free spectrograph with a built-in, low-noise, cooled detector. Featuring a 11 x 7 x 8 inch profile, Fergie provides the high sensitivity and low noise needed to address a wide range of spectroscopy applications.

Its ecosystem of easy-to-use accessories, which includes everything from lasers, fibre optics, and calibration sources to the family of light-coupling Fergie Cubes, allows scientists, educators, and engineers to put together complete experiments in a matter of minutes. For example, a typical Raman experiment that used to take hours to set up can now be ready in less than 90 seconds.

Fergie offers spectral resolution (0.13nm/pixel with a 1,200g/mm grating) that fares very well when compared to the resolution afforded by larger spectrographs with longer focal lengths.

Additionally, Fergie’s diffraction-limited imaging (>60lp/mm spatial resolution throughout the focal plane) yields exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratios and permits multichannel spectroscopy. Every Fergie spectrograph has a built-in detector that permits high-sensitivity spectral capture from 190 to 1,100nm.

The new spectroscopy system ships with a full-feature version of powerful Fergie software, powered by LightField - Princeton Instruments’ scientific spectroscopy software. Its intuitive GUI helps Fergie users construct experiments in only minutes.
