BaySpec Inc. of Fremont, Calif., an advanced spectroscopy solutions provider, has announced the successful outcome of a collaboration on a new OCT spectral engine that features up to three times greater collection efficiency than standard Czerny-Turner spectrographs. Based on e2v’s family of SD-OCT (spectral-domain OCT) Aviiva EM4 detector array cameras and BaySpec’s high-throughput volume phase gratings DeepView spectrographs, the OEM instrument is designed for the SD-OCT market.
- 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...
