It is equipped with a 2048 element linear CCD array, built-in 16-bit digitizer, and high-speed USB 2.0 interface.
Compared to non-cooled CCD spectrometers, the Glacier X miniature spectrometer offers higher dynamic range, significantly reduced dark counts, and superior baseline stability, making it the ideal spectrometer for low light level detection and long-term monitoring applications. Wavelength configurations are available from as low as 200nm to as high as 1050nm with resolutions between 0.2nm and 4.0nm.
Custom spectrometer configurations and advanced application support are available for OEM customers. The combined temperature cooling and regulation, together with its compact form factor makes the Glacier TE Cooled spectrometer a favorite choice of OEM system integrators. The TE cooling makes it possible for weak signals, such as fluorescence and Raman, to be integrated for sufficient time to accumulate measurable signals for detection, resulting in a far superior signal-to-noise ratio.
