LE BOURGET DU LAC, France, Sept. 9, 2010 — Majantys has released a new version of its miniature spectrophotometer, the Probe4Light, featuring an optical resolution down to 5 nm. The device, designed for the characterization of light sources, is compact, flexible and reliable. The spectrophotometer has a miniature and a rugged grating sensor for spectral and color parameter measurements over the visible spectrum from 380 to 780 nm. Initially designed with an optical resolution of 10 nm, the device is now available with 5-nm FWHM optical resolution. The wavelength accuracy remains unchanged at 0.5 nm over the full spectral measurement range. The sensor resolution may be critical when working on specific light sources with multiple narrow spectral lines, such as gas discharge lamps. The device yields color results with high accuracy, whatever the light source spectra. It has a USB interface and may connect to any compatible PC running Windows operating systems. It is delivered with its dedicated software, and various options, including measurement heads, are available to match any customer applications.
