Laser Spectrometer for the MIR Range

A·P·E Angewandte Physik & Elektronik has launched a new version of the waveScan USB spectrometer for the mid-infrared range from 1.5 to 6.3 μm.

The waveScan USB is an easy to use, high resolution device for spectral analysis of cw and mode-locked laser systems. The waveScan USB MIR extends the range of the waveScan USB family of laser spectrometers towards longer wavelengths.

The MIR version offers measurements in the wavelength range of 1.5 ... 6.3 μm with a resolution of better than 3 nm. It offers fast measurements with high resolution in the wavelength range beyond the capability of line detectors based on silicon or InGaAs. The waveScan USB MIR is also an ideal alignment tool because of its high scan rate of about 6 Hz, which is achieved by using highly precise rotational movement only.

The easy-to-use Control Software supplied with the waveScan USB MIR displays and stores the measured spectra on a standard PC and gives access to all measuring and calibration features.

Similar to the standard waveScan USB, the MIR version is optionally available with a fiber input in addition to the free space entrance.
