The Ocean Optics line of high-sensitivity back-thinned 2D FFT-CCD spectrometers for low light-level, UV-sensitive and other scientific applications now includes the uncooled Maya 2000 and Maya 2000-Pro, which offer greater than 90% quantum efficiency, high dynamic range and excellent UV response.
Advantages of Back-thinned FFT-CCD Detectors
Introducing Maya 2000-series Spectrometers
If $10,000 is a little bit out of your budget range, and if long integration times aren’t part of your application, the Maya 2000 and Maya 2000-Pro may fill the bill. Indeed, at introductory prices of just $4,800 and $5,800, respectively, Maya 2000 and Maya 2000-Pro offer great value and performance for most any application requiring high sensitivity, good UV response and great dynamic range.
While Maya 2000 and Maya 2000-Pro have similar performance for most parameters, the Maya 2000 has slightly faster readout time and the Pro offers better dynamic range and signal-to-noise (see comparison tables for a specification-by-specification analysis). Also, please note that limited detector availability may make lead times longer for the Maya 2000. Maya 2000: $4,800 Maya 2000-Pro: $5,800
