Avantes Launches New Spectrometer


AvaSpec-Hero Sensline is a 'workhorse' for those in need of high resolution and high sensitivity

Spectroscopy firm Avantes has announced the AvaSpec-Hero Sensline spectrometer, which it describes as a 'workhorse' for those in need of high resolution and high sensitivity.

It is suitable for applications such as Raman, absorption, and fluorescence.

Key specifications include a sensitivity of 445,000 counts/μW per ms integration time and a Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) of 1200:1.

Based on a high sensitivity compact optical bench (f=100mm; NA=0.13) and a 1024x58 backthinned CCD detector, the instrument is equipped with TE Cooling to enable long integration times in low light applications. It also includes high speed USB3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. 

A selection of gratings and replaceable slits offer the flexibility of configuring the instrument for a wide range of applications in the 200-1160nm range.

Avantes develops and manufactures spectrometers, light sources, software, fibre optic cables, and accessories for fields such as solar energy, semiconductors, light measurement, (bio)medical, and food processing technology.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
