The Quest miniature fiber-optic spectrometers from B&W Tek, Inc. (Newark, DE) now feature a thermal drift spectrum of ~19 counts/C typical and a faster readout speed of >2.0 MHz. A traditional crossed Czerny Turner spectrograph (Quest X) and unfolded Czerny Turner spectrograph (Quest U) minimize stray light in the UV region. Features include a 2048 elements linear CCD array, a 16 bit digitizer and an externally synchronized trigger.
B&W Tek, Inc Announces Improved Quest™ Series Miniature Fiber Optic Spectrometers
Newark, DE, Jan 31, 2011
B&W Tek, Inc., an advanced instrumentation company producing optical spectroscopy and laser systems announces the updated Quest™ series of miniature fiber optic spectrometers. The Quest™ series of high performance miniature fiber optic spectrometers now features an ultralow thermal drift spectrum of ~19 counts/C typical and a faster readout speed of >2.0MHz. As an added bonus, the Quest™ series is now available with optional RS232 communication interface for convenient integration into larger systems.
“The fast read out speed of the new Quest™ series spectrometers makes them ideal for high speed applications such as LED binning and sorting,” says Robert Chimenti, Marketing Manager for B&W Tek, Inc. “We feel that this will strengthen our position as a leader in the LED characterization market.”
The Quest™ series employs both a traditional crossed Czerny Turner spectrograph (Quest™ X) as well as an unfolded Czerny Turner spectrograph (Quest™ U) which minimizes stray light in the UV region. The series is equipped with 2048 elements linear CCD array, built-in 16-bit digitizer, and an externally synchronized trigger.
