COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 19, 2014 — Offering high sensitivity, high resolution and an ultralow stray-light level, the UV-3600 Plus UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer from Shimadzu achieves high-accuracy measurements across the entire wavelength range. The device is equipped with three detectors: a photomultiplier tube for UV and visible light, an InGaAs and a cooled PbS detector for near-infrared. Compared with spectrophotometers with only PMTs and PbS detectors, the UV-3600 Plus significantly reduces the noise level for accurate measurements. The spectrophotometer also offers a three-detector, multipurpose, large-sample compartment with integrating sphere options to enable high-sensitivity measurement of solid samples. Applications include analysis in the materials science, photovoltaic, electronic, optical coating, textile, food science, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, life science and chemical fields.
