STS ultra-compact spectrometer

Distributor BFi Optilas now offers the STS ultra-compact spectrometer for high volume OEM applications, manufactured by Ocean Optics. The STS is a small CMOS-based unit (40 x 42 x 24mm) offering an optical resolution of ~1.5nm (FWHM). The device also features a built-in shutter, allowing dark measurements to be taken more conveniently. The spectrometer is well suited to high-intensity applications such as LED characterisation and absorbance/transmission measurements. The company states that the STS spectrometer meets or exceeds optical resolution, stability, sensitivity and other performance criteria associated with larger, more expensive spectrometers.
