4096 pixel CMOS array miniature spectrometer

Portable LIBS Demo System

The AvaSpec-Mini4096CL is a solid performing instrument for high resolution applications such as LIBS and optical emission spectroscopy.  The demo Avantes and Lumibird system contains this Mini configured with a 1800 groove/mm grating that is blazed at 250 nm.  The grating provides for 175 nm of spectral range coverage with average resolution of 0.12 nm (FWHM).  The instrument is configured with a 10 micron slit and a cylindrical detector collection lens for sensitivity enhancement.    The spectrometer supports amazing low integrations times starting at 30 microseconds and can be externally triggered via a laser or it can trigger another device.  The on board communication protocol is USB 2.0.

Falcon (5 mJ)

Ultra compact diode-pumped pulsed 1.57 µm laser

The Falcon laser series was built for rugged applications unsuitable for most commercial lasers. A proprietary design, the Falcon provides eye-safe wavelengths in a compact yet robust package. Designed for battery operation in hand-held and mobile applications, this DPSS Nd:YAG laser features maintenance free operation for years of hard use.
