Andor's iDus InGaAs detector array for Spectroscopy

Andor's iDus InGaAs 2.2 array detector series provides the most optimized platform for Spectroscopy applications up to 2.2 µm. The TE-cooled, in-vacuum InGaAs camera sensors reach cooling temperatures of -90°C where best Signal-to-Noise ratio can be achieved. Indeed dark current will improve moderately below -90°C where scene black body radiation will dominate, while Quantum Efficiency of the sensor will be greatly impacted at these lower temperatures and lead to a lower Signal-to-Noise ratio.

3D LS Spectrometer

The 3D LS Spectrometer is among the most sophisticated instruments for particle characterization based on static light scattering (SLS) and dynamic light scattering ( DLS).  

It incorporates the revolutionary 3D cross correlation technology for eliminating the contributions of multiple scattering.  Sample dilution is a thing of the past; you can now study your systems in their native state: Particle Sizing, Form- and Structure Factor, Molecular Weight, Rotational and Translational Diffusion Coefficient.

The 3D LS Spectrometer does everything you have come to expect from a high quality goniometer-based light scattering instrument for particle characterisation. The growing list of scientific publications  based on results obtained by our customers with the 3D LS Spectrometer is proof of the high quality of the instrument.

  • Prominent features include:
  • - Dynamic and static light scattering at scattering angles from 8°-155°
  • - Particle characterisation from 0.15 nm to 5 microns*: 
  • hydrodynamic radius RH, radius of gyration RG, size distribution, form and structure factor
  • - Determination of molecular weight
  • - Automated particle sizing using Cumulant fit and CONTIN analysis
  • - Suppression of multiply scattered light using the 3D cross-correlation technology
  • (down to 5% transmission for sub-mm path length)
  • - Straightforward procedure for robust alignment with excellent long-term stability
  • - Precise temperature control

BWTEK BDS130A light source

The BDS130A is a turnkey fiber coupled UV/Vis/NIR light source with a spectral output of 190 to > 2500nm. The UV/Vis lamp is a 30W deuterium lamp providing the advantage of low heat generation and efficient power conversion. A tungsten halogen lamp shares the optical path with the deuterium lamp and provides Vis/NIR emission. The UV/Vis and Vis/NIR light sources can be individually turned on and off. An electronic shutter is included to control light output using another switch on the front panel. The BDS130A features an SMA 905 connector for fiber optic light coupling with no fiber alignment needed, making it ideal for spectroscopic applications.

Huber CC-308B with Pilot ONE

Heating bath circulation thermostats with a stainless steel bath allow the temperature control of internal and external thermoregulation tasks. Items can be directly thermoregulated by placing them in a thermostat bath and the control of externally connected applications is also possible. The units are suitable for a number of typical temperature control tasks such as sample temperature control, materials testing, quality control, etc. The devices are fitted with overtemperature and low level protection in line with Safty Class III/FL according to DIN 12876. A powerful pressure/suction pump ensures optimal circulation and temperature homogeneity in the thermostat bath and also allows temperature control of externally connected applications using a pump adapter.

The new multi-touch controller Pilot ONE offers a brilliant 5.7" touchscreen with graphic functions and a comfortable navigation menu in 11 languages. All important operating parameters and temperature values are neatly displayed on the touchscreen. Thanks to the new favourites menu, the one-click operation and the integrated technical glossary the operation is very easy, just like on a smartphone. Integrated USB and Ethernet ports allows connection to a PC or network, e.g. for remote control or data transmission.

  • Pilot ONE controller with Plug & Play technology   
  • Precise temperature control   
  • 5.7“ touchscreen and comfortable menu navigation   
  • Overtemperature and low level protection   
  • Safety class III/FL (DIN 12876)   
  • Powerful pressure/suction pump   
  • Programmer with calendar and clock functions   
  • 5-point calibration   
  • RS232 interface and Pt100 connection
