Wide optical spectrum possible in microseconds


AMS Technologies has unveiled a new spectrometer using a combination of a KTa1-x


Nbx O3 (KTN) optical beam scanner and a


Spectroscopy investigates interplanetary science


Spectrometer maker McPherson has announced that the Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory is using its high resolution, long focal length spectrometer. Based in Chelmsford, Massachusetts,


McPherson manufactures a variety of instruments that measure and tune specific wavelengths of light for many disciplines of


spectroscopy. The company supplies research instrumentation to domestic and international universities and research laboratories. Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory is a department of the Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center in Palo Alto, California. It is manned by a group of scientists and engineers who design, build, and operate solar and astrophysical observing instruments. www.mcphersoninc.com


wavelength dispersion element. This spectrometer can measure a wide optical spectrum in microsecond-order time because of the fast scan response of KTN optical beam scanner. The spectrometer will be used to measure microsecond optical pulses. The KTN scanner is expected to observe ultrafast luminous phenomena such as those found in fluorescence studies. This is because the Japanese company and AMS Technologies’ partner, NTT-AT, successfully assembled a KTN scanner as a compact module with a fibre pigtailing. The module is 20 x 30 x 60mm in size. The temperature of the KTN scanner chip is controlled by TEC. The scanning angle is 10 degrees (±5 degrees) and the response speed is less than 1 microsecond. www.amstechnologies.com
