Torus Concave Grating SpectrometersCompact Spectrometer Delivers Low Stray Light and High Throughput Torus is a family of aberration-corrected holographic concave diffraction grating spectrometers that delivers low stray light, high throughput and excellent thermal stability for a wide range of research and OEM applications. Our initial Torus model is a Visible range spectrometer (360-825 nm) whose spectral range and low stray light make it especially useful for measuring color. Its high throughput and great thermal stability make it ideal for demanding applications. Like most Ocean Optics...

Low Stray Light, High Throughput Holographic Concave Grating Design T orus Concave Grating Spectrometers Reflective concave gratings are concave mirrors that disperse light; the concavity of the grating reflects and focuses the light and the grating groove pattern disperses the light. These aberration-corrected concave gratings are known for their low stray light and high efficiency. The toroidal (the radius of curvature in the focusing and dispersion directions are different) grating used in Torus further enhances the aberration correction and efficiency. For our Visible Torus...

Understanding Ocean Optics SpectrometersHelpful Hints in Choosing the Optimum Spectrometer Model Spectroscopy is a technique in which the design criteria exist as a set of trade-offs. The optimal spectrometer for you depends entirely upon the application - and your budget. The design process begins by asking a series of questions: What are you trying to measure? How fast do you need the measurement? Where is the sample? Who will be operating the instrument? Then, there's the most important question of all: Why are you making the measurements? Armed with the answers to those questions, Ocean...

Ocean Optics USB-Series spectrometers are versatile performers for a wide array of applications. Although our flagship USB2000+ and USB4000 spectrometers have comparable electronics and architecture, they do have one very important difference: their linear CCD array detectors. In addition, USB2000+ and USB4000 spectrometers are available in application-ready (preconfigured for specific application types) and build-your-own (user-configured for maximum flexibility) versions. Comparing the USB2000+ and USB4000 Spectrometers The USB2000+ has a 2048-element Sony ILX511B detector and the USB4000...
