Product Announcement from Arcoptix S.A


The Arcspectro HT is a static Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) that is based on a licensed concept that uses the polarization properties of the light and the optical properties of crystals). It provides a extremely high throughput (sensitivity) and does not need external optics to be used. The Arcspectro HT is ideal for the measurement of low light, diffuse reflection and also in fields like fluorescence or Raman spectroscopy.

What makes the ARCspectro-HT spectrometer so exclusive?

ARCspectro HT is ideal for low light applications or for the spectral analysis of diffusing light sources (or samples). Its unique design permits to gather a maximum of light over a large diffusing surface (several millimeters!) and over a large angle (±10°). This gives a tremendous throughput advantage (~50x more) compared to the most powerful grating spectrometers (also well-known Jaquinot advantage) which are intrinsically limited by a small entrance slit (typically 0.025mm). This makes this unique device ideal for applications were small light intensities has to be analyzed (fluorescence or Raman spectroscopy). THIS PDF document shows a comparison between a standard grating spectrometer and a the Arcspectro HT for a strong diffusing source
