Microspectometer Boasts Flexible Configuration Design
HORIBA Scientific’s MicOS is a fully integrated and flexible microspectrometer that combines a versatile microscope head directly coupled to a three-gratings imaging spectrometer and a research-grade scientific camera. The entire package is controlled by the company’s LabSpec software. The design of the microspectrometer makes it compatible over a wide spectral range covering UV/Vis and NIR (200 to 1600 nm), allowing the characterization of different types of materials, such as semiconductor and biological samples. The design of the microscope head includes an embedded digital imaging camera, allowing direct viewing of the sample for accurate measurements.
Additionally, the user has the choice to configure the unit either as a down-looking microspectrometer for mapping of samples, or as a side-looking microspectrometer, for samples mounted inside an upright cryostat for temperature-controlled measurements. The excitation source is directly fiber-coupled to the microscope head. The choice of the wavelength for the laser is virtually unlimited as the user can self-replace any dispersive, such as dichroic mirror, in order to match the excitation wavelength. The system is an ideal tool for photoluminescence, electroluminescence and photo-reflectance measurements at the microscopic level. It is simple-to-use and provides enhanced spectral data quality.
