 volume phase holographic diffrection gratings Volume Phase Holographic Diffraction Gratings
VPH Transmission gratings offer higher resolution and lower stray light than reflective surface relief gratings. Ten years of manufacturing experience and our proprietary Dickson grating design makes these gratings the first choice for high end astronomy applications, pulse compression systems for lasers, high throughput spectrometers for Raman and Fluorescence. We offer a selection of off-the-shelf gratings to get you started, and will be glad to quote and design a grating to your specification.
 optical oxygen sensor for DO or gaseous O2 Optical Oxygen Sensors
Optical O2 sensors measure the fluorescence quenching by O2 of fluorophores excited by a pulsed LED. The fluorophores are captured in our zero-drift chemistries designed for use in water, gases, foods, slurries, solvents and other media.  The sensors are read by our Neofox phase fluorometer in either a USB lab format or a portable version called the Sport.

We have dozens of probe styles and even patches that can be read remotely.
 NirQuest array spectrometers for the near infrared NIR range Near Infrared (NIR) Spectrometers
We use InGaAs detector arrays in our Nirquest line of fiber optic spectrometers. These come with standard Indium Gallium Arsenide CCD arrays for the 900 - 1700nm band, and enganced InGaAs for 900nm - 2100nm or 900nm - 2500nm versions.

 multi cuvette holder fiber optic and free beam

 Multi Cuvette Holder for Absorbance and Fluorescence

Cuvette rack holds 6 1cm square cuvettes. Optical ports on each face align with fiber optic collimators. Configure the ports for absorbance (180 degrees between illumination and detection), fluorescence (90 degrees) or both! The slide is adjusted manually and slips into registration with spring loaded pins. Optional motorized versions are also available, as well as LEDS, broadband sources and spectrometers.

 Raman plate reader Chevelle by Wasatch Photonics Raman Spectrometer Systems from Wasatch Photonics
Wasatch has the most remarkable holographic volume phase gratings (VPGs) that have remarkable efficiency at the 785nm Raman laser wavelength. VPGs can be made with high line densities and high efficiency and low polarization dependence.  Couple that to really efficient f/#1.3 optics and you get incredible sensitivity and fast acquaition of spectra (typical 100 msec).  This new muscle car technology is a availble as the CHEVELLE Raman plate reader for micotiter plates, or as the NOVA hand-held raman system that boasts of benctop performance in a tiny self contained package.

Interesting Applications

Tissue spectroscopy -- reveals oxy and de-oxy hemoglobin concentrations
Absorbance spectra of human tissue - hemoglobin analysis

This spectra shows the Fraunhofer lines in the solar spectra. The data was obtained with an HR4000 high resolution spectrometer. These lines are absorption bands due to gases and volatile compounds in the atmosphere

Here is one of the first spectra taken on Mars by the ChemCam system on the lander Curiousity.  The spectra was obtained using laser breakdown spectroscopy... a laser zaps a sample of rock (or dust in this case) and creates a 15K degree plasma that ionizes a tiny portion of the sample. As the plasma cools, electrons return to the atoms and release specific wavelengths of light.  the result is an instant elemental analysis.

ChemCam is a marvel in that it can do this at a distance, using a telescope to capture the spectra.

Ocean Optics worked on the design of the space hardened spectrometers, which were based on our HR2000 bench concept.
