Ocean Optics Inc.'s USB2000, an even smaller version of the S2000 miniature fiber optic spectrometer, plugs into the universal serial bus port of any desktop or notebook PC that uses Windows 98. It draws its power from the computer, eliminating the need for an external power supply. Its linear CCD-array detector has 200- to 1100-nm responsivity and can be configured with one of 14 grating options from the UV to short-wave near-IR. Gratings with 600 lines per millimeter typically have a 650-nm spectral range. The device also can have a coated IR array to expand its range to 1.6 µm.
