Ophir Optronics Inc. has unveiled its WaveStar PC spectrometer that measures spectra from a wide range of sources, including continuous and pulsed sources from microwatts to watts in intensity. The WaveStar models U and V have spectral responses of 350 to 635 nm and 570 to 1100 nm, respectively. The spectrometers automatically find and tag peak wavelengths to ±0.1-nm accuracy and have a full width half maximum resolution of 0.5 nm. The self-contained devices plug into a parallel port without the need for a PC card and have a photodiode trigger that captures single-shot events.
