OEM Spectroscopy and Imaging Systems

The HORIBA Scientific OEM product line consists of:

HORIBA Scientific leads the commercial holographic diffraction grating technology. For example: the concave aberration corrected holographic grating (CACHG), innovated by HORIBA Jobin Yvon, combines a simplicity, consistency, throughput, and image quality not possible with other optical designs. OEMs recognize the advantages, replacing multi-element optical systems with our one-piece CACHG. The performance gains, manufacturing ease, and improvements in long-term quality make high volume instrumentation cost effective.

CT-300 Multichannel CCD Spectrometer

Highest number of large fibers: 20 channels. High throughput thanks to 800 mic diameter, & to Back-Illuminated CCD with large pixels.

Designed for low light applications, which require large fiber diameter for the input legs and BI CCDs:

The CT-300 series of CCD spectrometers are high throughput/sensitivity systems, which use back-thinned CCDs and can be configured with 10 to 20 fiber input channels (800 micron diameter fibers), running in a combination of Sequential and Simultaneous modes. The Visible spectral coverage is the standard configuration. Shuttering the light path will be required in Sequential Mode. The patented Optical Layout (modified Czerny-Turner) provides Imaging capability which allows some Simultaneous acquisitions as well. The slit width is customized to attain the proper spectral resolution on each channel. Other ranges of coverage (towards UV or NIR) can be reached by customization for OEM volume applications, according to the selected fiber diameter. Dark Current: 6 electron/msec at ambient temperature.

  • Maximum Full Well: ≈390,000 electrons max, Maximum Dynamic Range: 7000:1 typical
  • Intensity resolution: 16 bit.

CC-55 Imaging Spectrometer

CC-55 Imaging Multichannel Spectrometer - Simultaneous acquisition 10-26 Fiber Inputs (with diameters in the range of 100-400 mic) Interline CCD, may allow a shutter-free set-up (Call us) Line imaging on tall Sony ICX285AL CCD.

The CC-55 CCD Imaging Spectrometer features a Type-I grating (equidistant and parallel grooves) and a very low noise Interline Front illuminated CCD with 1360 x 1024 pixels. The readout noise is below 8e-. The CCD can be binned 1x1, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 or can allow Regions of Interest, such as: 20 rows(ROI) of interest and 21 rows(ROI) of separation areas. The spectrograph, when connected to fiber input channels, will collect all light at F/2.3, and depending on the selected slit width, the spectral resolution will be in the 2.5 to 7 nm range. The spectral coverage over a 5.5 mm detector length, is typically 380nm to 760nm, but adjustments to extend the range, up or down, can be made. Cross-talk is minimized (in the 0.2 to 0.5% range depending on number of fibers and their size) and stray light is very low. Multiple fiber inputs with 100 mic diameter allow you to monitor 20 channels simultaneously, without the use of a shutter, or without having to turn-off the light sources, during readout. The speed in such configuration can reach 10Hz (30-40Hz alo achievable). If Sequential acquisition is acceptable, the CC-55 is capable of up to 32 channels with large fibers (600 mic)!! Dark Current: 1.2 electron / pixel / second (when CCD temperature is stabilized at 20°C).

  • Maximum Full Well: ≈18,000 electrons max, ≈21,600 electrons max when binning.
  • Dynamic Range: 2000:1 typical (un-binned mode).
  • Intensity resolution: 16 bit.
