The SpectrAcq2 is not just another readout system – it’s a compact, high speed, high performance spectral data acquisition controller designed for advanced spectroscopy and light measurement applications.

Lock-in Amplifiers

Lock-in amplifiers are used in conjunction with HORIBA Scientific’s series of single point detectors, especially for DSS detectors with response in the infrared.  Using a lock-in amplifier with a modulated source allows the user to resolve low-level signals over noise that arises from blackbody radiation and other DC and AC sources.

Standford Research Systems’ SR500 series and SR800 series are both compatible with SynerJY™ software.  A chopper and communication cable are required for operation.


Signal Recovery’s 7265 dual phase DSP digital signal processing lock-in amplifier is also compatible with SynerJY software.  A chopper and communication cable are required for operation.

Primary Applications

Spectrometers and monochromators are used in conjunction with a variety of compatible electro-optical components and software to build custom spectroscopy solutions.

Raman Spectroscopy

Raman spectroscopy is quickly becoming a popular method for investigating chemical structures and composition. HORIBA Scientific offers full flexibility in designing a component-based Raman detection set-up with choice of iHR spectrometers and Synapse™or Symphony II CCD and InGaAs detectors. Our systems are best suited for researchers wanting maximum flexibility in implementing their own collection optics, connecting to existing microscopes, or for budget limited researchers needing high sensitivity detection systems that can be expanded and upgraded in the future. HORIBA Scientific’s specialized Raman Division offers a full line of dedicated and fully characterized Raman spectrometers.

Absorption / Transmission / Reflectance

Absorption, Transmission, and Reflectance spectroscopy techniques are commonly used for determining the properties of materials. The modularity of an HORIBA Scientific spectroscopy system outperforms a traditional UV-VIS spectrophotometer by allowing you to expand your experiment capabilities. The interchangeable automated dual grating turret coupled with our motorized order sorting filter wheel, dual exit ports of the microHR, and a wide variety of light sources and detectors give the flexibility needed to cover all wavelength ranges from 180 nm to 20 microns.

With HORIBA Scientific spectroscopy components, you can design a custom fluorometer using iHR spectrometers as the excitation and emission spectrometers with a choice of excitation sources, sample compartments and detectors from our full line of products and accessories. Complete system control is available through our SynerJY®software. HORIBA Scientific’s specialized Fluorescence Division offers a full line of dedicated, fully characterized spectrofluorometers and both time domain and frequency domain fluorescence lifetime instruments, featuring the world’s most sensitive instruments for research and analytical environments.

Photoluminescence (PL)

Photoluminescence is a simple yet powerful technique for characterizing semiconductor materials. An iHR550 equipped with a cooled CCD detector for the range of 400-1000 nm, and a cooled InGaAs detector for the 800-1600 nm range, is an excellent general purpose photoluminescence measurement system. Separate optical configurations can be designed for room temperature PL and low-temperature PL using the same iHR spectrometer. iHR spectrometers provide the flexibility to change experiments and optical configurations to meet your needs.

Plasma / Emission Analysis

Simultaneous recording of spectra at multiple locations in a plasma can provide critical information about spatially varying phenomena. A fiber with multiple inputs can collect light from different points in the plasma and arrange the signals into a line of points at the entrance slit of the spectrograph. Taking advantage of the high resolution of a 1250M monochromator and high sensitivity of the liquid nitrogen cooled Symphony II CCD system, the spatially separated data is collected uniquely on the CCD and represents independent optical emission spectra from different fiber collection points.

Solar / Photovoltaics

OBB offers excellent high power tunable xenon arc lamp illuminators that are used extensively for solar and photovoltaic research around the world. HORIBA illuminators are ideal choices for the solar industry because they offer more optical power (Suns) for less money, in a compact and very reliable product. Our tunable illuminators are often used to measure the external quantum efficiency (EQE) and incident photon to current efficiency (IPCE) for various solar devices.
