DUNEDIN, Fla., Feb. 5, 2008 -- Ocean Optics said its USB2000+ miniature fiber optic spectrometer, its fastest, is designed to monitor high-speed chemical and biochemical reactions. The CCD-array detector, with a high-speed USB 2.0 port interface, can capture and store a full spectrum into memory at 1000 scans per second.
The spectrometer measures optical properties within a wavelength band of 200 to 1100 nm. It can be equipped with a custom-selected fixed grating, which disperses the light to the 2048-element CCD array detector, producing results at a resolution to 0.35nm with FWHM (full width at half maximum) image sharpness.
The USB2000+ programmable microcontroller allows flexibility in controlling the spectrometer through its digital and analog general-purpose input/output interface, and it can be used in various trigger modes. The internal nonvolatile EEPROM memory chip stores the wavelength calibration to be automatically used by the operating software.
Spectrometer operation is simplified with Ocean Optics’ SpectraSuite software. The completely modular, Java-based spectroscopy software operates in Windows, Mac OS and Linux. The USB2000+ connects directly to the computer via a USB cable and requires no outside power source.
The USB2000+ can be custom configured with the help of Ocean Optics applications scientists; users may choose from 14 gratings, six slits and hundreds of fiber optic accessories to create a system optimized to a specific application.
Upgrading and changing the sampling system is as easy as unscrewing a connector and adding new components or accessories, such as light sources, sampling holders, filter holders, flow cells, fiber optic probes and sensors, collimating lenses, attenuators, diffuse reflectance standards, integrating spheres or optical fibers.
