Si-Ware Systems (SWS) has introduced an integrated micro-spectrometer for broad industrial and consumer use. The NeoSpectra Micro is a small, chip-scale, near infrared spectral sensor that analyses materials quickly on site without the need to send samples to a lab, enabling dramatic time savings and accurate, actionable data. The device is small enough and thin enough to be incorporated into a smartphone case or designed into a mobile product. Its applications include scanning food, evaluating soil health, measuring oil and gas composition and

Zyla and iStar ultrafast modes

Andor Technology has launched an ultrafast spectroscopy mode on its high-speed, low-noise Zyla and iStar scientific CMOS (sCMOS) platforms, enabling spectral rates of up to 27,000 sps. The Zyla spectroscopy mode spectral rates

are suited for high resolution, low light and high dynamic range transient spectroscopy applications with tens of microsecond time resolution. The Zyla’s 99.8 per cent linearity

checking pharmaceutical purity. The NeoSpectra Micro speeds up sample analysis from days to minutes without a need for offsite lab verification. The NeoSpectra Micro

builds on the cost-effective NeoSpectra sensing module used by system integrators for the development of industry-specific hand-held and inline spectrometer applications. The device is currently in use in agriculture, petrochemical, and healthcare industries.

and zero optical etaloning in near infrared yield exceptional quantitative measurement accuracy. Its multi-track mode delivers a powerful tool for hyperspectral imaging and dual-track, kilohertz transient absorption spectroscopy. The iStar brings together low noise, high dynamic range and spectral rates up to 4,000 sps.


RARe Motheye optical fibres and Smartsplicer

Fiberguide Industries displayed its new RARe Motheye optical fibres at Photonics West, held in San Francisco in January. Fiberguide uses a proprietary technology to create randomised nanostructures on the fibre surface that are similar to the compound eyes of nocturnal insects. This results in fibre optic assemblies with superior wavelength range (400-2,200nm), durability and damage thresholds when compared with commonly used AR coatings. The firm has also expanded its fibre end

cap production capabilities with a CO2 laser splicing and glass shaping system. Developed by Nyfors Teknologi, the Smartsplicer uses new computer-assisted laser targeting technology to provide high quality fibre end cap splicing.


Off-axis parabolic first surface metal mirrors

Edmund Optics has introduced new off-axis parabolic first surface metal mirrors. Intended for use in broadband visible and IR applications; each mirror is interferomically tested. Off-

axis parabolic mirrors are free of chromatic aberration over a broadband range because they are not wavelength dependent. These mirrors are ideal for use in instrumentation and laser systems, feature no adhesives to achieve excellent thermal conductivity and

also have a focal point not in line with the optical axis, allowing the use of various components. They are available in a reflected

focal length range from 12.7mm to 516mm in 15, 30, 45, 60 or 90° off-axis options.
