TAMPA, Fla., April 16, 2013 — StellarNet Inc. has released a series of portable Raman spectrometers that use InGaAs detectors to capture NIR spectra induced by 1064-nm lasers. Sample fluorescence is avoided, while the SpectraWiz software enables quick identification of liquids, powders or solids. The Raman-HR-TEC-IG achieves 8-cm–1 resolution with a 1024-element PDA detector, while the standard-resolution instrument achieves 16 cm–1 and has a 512 PDA. Both instruments have integrated two-stage thermoelectric coolers, have no moving parts, and are permanently aligned for shockproof durability. An SMA-905 optical input to the spectrometer allows attachment of Raman probes or fiber optic sample accessories. Each spectrometer has a PC interface via USB 2 for power and data and includes a +5 VDC adapter for a TE cooler, with a battery pack option available for TEC. The rugged instruments are suitable for lab and field applications.
