StellarNet has released a new high-performance spectrometer, the Silver-Nova.

The company says it has a ruggedised metal enclosure with a fibre optic input for demanding applications in the 190-1110nm wavelength range that require high resolution and optimal sensitivity.  

The Silver-Nova is described as a well-rounded spectrometer, allowing research grade results for numerous spectroscopic applications, and employing composite grating technology to deliver high efficiency in both the UV & NIR spectral extremes.

The UV-enhanced CCD detector with integrated TE cooler, gain enhancements, and optical lens assemblies allow for unparalleled sensitivity, with more than 65 per cent increased signal to noise at long exposures.  

Advancements in Silver-Nova's optical design deliver 1nm resolution with a 25um slit. Additionally, StellarNet says the unit is compact to allow for portable, process, or laboratory environments.
