Hamamatsu Photonics Long Wavelength Type NIR Mini-Spectrometer
Hamamatsu Photonics just introduced the newest member of its TG series of mini-spectrometers, the C11118GA. The new TG NIR spectrometer module expands on the existing Hamamatsu range and adopts a high sensitivity, low noise InGaAs image sensor, specially selected to match the optical arrangement. The C11118GA is optimised for NIR operation and works in the 0.9 µm to 2.55 µm waveband. This new module provides higher sensitivity and the furthest response in the IR compared to other products on the market.The module consists of a palm-top size polychromator, integrated with optical elements. The cooled InGaAs image sensor is optimised for the required wavelength range and comes with an image sensor driver circuit. The spectrometer module includes both sample software, DLL library and an integrated USB 2.0 interface. PC connection and data acquisition are quick and easy as the user can set measurement conditions, acquire and save data and can generate graphical displays.
The new miniature spectrometer module is ideal for applications such as NIR spectrometry, soil and water analysis, life sciences, forensic science and many more.
