NEWARK, Del., Sept. 20, 2012 — B&W Tek Inc. has expanded its Exemplar smart spectrometer line with the introduction of the Exemplar LS and Exemplar Plus. The miniature spectrometers are used in high-speed reaction kinetics, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy and real-time process monitoring. The new models feature a low-stray-light “unfolded” Czerny-Turner spectrograph to provide good performance below 400 nm. The Exemplar LS integrates into compact UV and UV/VIS spectrophotometer systems. The Exemplar Plus offers an increased focal length, decreasing the linear dispersion and improving the spectral resolution. This enables selection of lower groove density gratings to provide a wider spectral range. It also features a sensitive, high-dynamic-range thermoelectrically cooled back-thinned CCD detector with 2048 effective pixels.
