SPECTRAL Industries

SPECTRAL Industries, headquartered in The Neatherlands, has created the IRIS, the next generation of echelle spectrometers.

IRIS Specifications

  • Broadband echelle spectrometer: unique combination of high bandwidth and high resolution in one instrument
  • High throughput and efficiency compared to other echelle spectrometers (F#2), resulting in lower detection limits or shorter integration time
  • All components selected and designed to work together harmoniously, while maintaining flexibility for OEM customization
  • Robust design, very low temperature sensitivity and able to withstand harsh environments
  • Can be applied to combine Raman and LIBS functionality in one instrument
  • Calibration software available, fully automated calibration under development
  • Spectrometer suited for 180 – 900 nm, deep-UV CMOS camera available

Inspired by R&D for the ESA ExoMars mission to Mars, Spectral Industries has developed the IRIS, a very efficient and robust echelle spectrograph for application on Earth.  This unique technology offers space technology quality hardware that is useful under a wide range of conditions.

If you need reliable characterization in a flexible, robust package, this is your echelle spectrometer!  It features proven better signal-to-noise-ratio (~1000) than leading competitors and is ready for any environment from the field to the factory.  Plus, the UV-compatible CMOS camera delivers a 180-800 nm range at a fraction of the cost of other full-range solutions.
