|(1) – each spectrometer is equipped with a fiber socket and allows measurement of either free-space or fiber signals without any realignment
(2) – all spectrometers have two operational modes: CW (repetition rate from CW down to 6 kHz) and pulsed (up to 8 kHz for ASP-IR-1.7 and up to 25 kHz for ASP-IR-2.6 and ASP-IR-3.5); the pulsed mode has external trigger feature
(3) – dynamic range for pulsed mode given in brackets
(4) – NEP - noise equivalent power and NEE - noise equivalent energy are given at input beam diameter ~ 2 mm at peak sensitivity wavelength (ASP-IR-1.7 – 1.5 um, ASP-IR-2.6 – 2.3 um, ASP-IR-3.5 – 3.25 um)
* - typical values.
The ASP-IR boasts a scanning mechanism that allows measurements in IR range without using an expensive CCD array. This makes the spectrometer very attractive in terms of price in the market of IR spectrometers. The ASP-IR has impressive characteristics that provide precise laser emission analysis along the whole registered range with resolution of down to 0.5 nm. The unit also features a trigger signal input for convenient pulsed laser measurement.
The spectrometer has a special fiber input, allowing measurement of either free-space or fiber signals without any realignment.
Avesta is participating in Ultrafast Phenomena 2018 conference and tabletop exhibition in Hamburg, Germany (15-20 July). We would be glad to discuss any of the ongoing and future projects with the ultrafast community at our tabletop. Hope to see you soon!
Avesta’s facilities will be closed for the New Year break from 30 Dec 2017 till 08 Jan 2018. We will resume all operations on 09 Jan 2018. However, we hope to provide periodic e-mail correspondence during the holidays. We wish you a fruitful and prosperous Year 2018!
