Miniature High Throughput Spectrometer

HORIBA designs and manufactures miniature high-throughput OEM spectrometers from 190 nm to 1700 nm for various applications. Thanks to a low stray light aberrations corrected concave holographic grating, the VS20-SYS platform offers in a 1.68 x 1.87 x 2 inches footprint a very reliable and robust spectrometer.

VS20 OEM spectrometers can be fully customized in sensors, entrance, slit size, electronics board, interface, etc.
