DUIVEN, Netherlands, Feb. 1, 2012 — The Maya2000 Pro-VIS-NIR from Ocean Optics is a back-thinned 2-D fast Fourier transform-CCD spectrometer with high sensitivity, 80% peak quantum efficiency and good VIS-NIR response. It is suitable for low-light-level applications such as Raman as well as for analysis of gases used in semiconductor processing and measurement of biological samples in the life sciences.
The spectrometer has a low-etalon, scientific-grade detector that provides high quantum efficiency from ~400 to 1100 nm. Other features include triggering functions for providing accurate timing and synchronization between the spectrometer and other devices.
Three low-jitter trigger modes and normal free-running spectral acquisition operating modes are possible. Applications include pulsing a light source when acquiring a spectra and synchronizing spectral acquisition to coordinate with samples moving through a process stream or sensors reaching a certain temperature level.
The instrument supports RS-232 communications and has a 30-pin connector and 10 user-programmable digital input/outputs. Its enhanced onboard programmable high-speed field-programmable gate array controller enables triggering.
