New, Compact Spectrometer With Outstanding Imaging And Resolution


The new IsoPlane 160 spectrometer brings Princeton Instruments’ award-winning IsoPlane SCT-320 performance to a new, smaller platform. The IsoPlane 160 is the first compact spectrometer that provides outstanding imaging, high spectral resolution and excellent light-gathering power from the vacuum UV to the mid-IR without compromises. The IsoPlane 160 is ideally suited for multi-fiber spectroscopy and can resolve dozens of spatially separate spectral channels without crosstalk. It works seamlessly with Princeton Instruments’ industry-leading cameras and detectors, and our LightField with IntelliCal or WinSpec data acquisition software packages.

The IsoPlane 160 has outstanding imaging at zero order; thus, there is no need for a separate witness camera. Additionally, the IsoPlane 160 is very well suited for multiple-fiber spectroscopy and imaging as it can resolve dozens of spectral channels without crosstalk. No other 1/8 meter spectrograph can do this. Microscopy images have traditionally been limited to three colors, acquired sequentially using filter cubes. The IsoPlane 160, however, acquires hundreds or thousands of colors simultaneously, enabling a host of life and physical science applications.

Key applications for the IsoPlane 160 spectrograph include multichannel spectroscopy, microspectroscopy, Raman scattering, fluorescence, photoluminescence, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), Fourier-domain spectroscopy, biomedical imaging, and most other spectroscopic imaging and non-imaging techniques.
