Jun 2007
Belfast, Ireland-based Andor Technology, a maker of high-performance digital cameras and light-measurement products, announced sales and marketing agreements with spectrograph manufacturers at the LASER 2007 exhibition last week in Munich, Germany. Andor will distribute Raman Explorer multichannel, multispectrum spectrographs made by Headwall Photonics, based in Fitchburg, Mass., and the ImSpector direct sight imaging spectrograph from Specim Spectral Imaging Ltd., of Oulu, Finland. Andor launched two new spectrographs of its own at the exhibition: the Shamrock SR-500 and SR-750, for raman and fluorescence applications. The Shamrock SR-500 has an f/6.5 aperture, 1.7-nm/mm reciprocal dispersion and 0.05-nm wavelength resolution. The SR-750 has f/9.8 aperture, 1.1-nm/mm reciprocal dispersion and 0.03-nm wavelength resolution. Both offer 0- to 1200-nm mechanical scan, ±0.2-nm wavelength accuracy and 28x14-mm focal plane measurements.



GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
spectrograph
An optical instrument for forming the spectrum of a light source and recording it on a film. The dispersing medium may be a prism or a diffraction grating. A concave grating requires no other means to form a sharp image of the slit on the film, but a plane grating or a prism requires auxiliary lenses or concave mirrors to act as image-forming means in addition to the dispersing element. Refracting prisms can be used only in parallel light, so a collimating lens is required before the prism and...
