Ibsen Photonics (http://www.ibsenphotonics.com/), the global leader in fused silica transmission gratings and industrial grade spectrometer modules, today announced the new FREEDOM mini Raman spectrometer platform for integrators of analytical and process control instruments.
FREEDOM mini Raman offers the perfect balance between compact size and high performance in your instrument design due to the use of Ibsen Photonics unique transmission grating technology. The spectrometer is robust and almost athermal and can operate under demanding environmental conditions.
These benefits make FREEDOM mini Raman suited for small size, handheld and portable instruments for process control and field applications like Raman spectroscopy for the Pharma and security industries.
The size of the spectrometer is only 61 x 64 x 19 mm and yet it covers a wide spectral range of 475 nm to 1100 nm with a high resolution of 0.6 nm. The spectrometer is very flexible and can be used with many different laser wavelengths covering the popular 532, 785, and 830 nm. For instance, with a 785 nm laser 200 – 3650 cm-1 can be covered with a resolution of 10 cm-1.
FREEDOM mini Raman is intended for OEM integration in Raman instruments and can be configured with a range of different detectors allowing trade-offs between cost, sensitivity and noise to be made. The USB control electronics is optional enabling our customers to develop their own electronics or even re-use already developed electronics.
