Ocean Optics Inc. has launched the USB2000+ miniature fiber optic spectrometer for measuring optical properties in wavelengths from 200 to 1100 nm. It can be equipped with a fixed grating that disperses the light to the 2048-element CCD array detector to produce 0.35-nm resolution with FWHM image sharpness. The detector has a high-speed USB 2.0 interface that captures and stores a full spectrum into memory at 1000 scans per second. The programmable microcontroller provides flexibility in controlling the spectrometer through its digital and analog general-purpose input/output interface and can be used in various trigger modes. The internal nonvolatile EEPROM memory chip stores the wavelength calibration to be used by the SpectraSuite software, which operates on Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
