Intensified Spectroscopy

Spectroscopy on a Nanosecond Timescale

 

Intensified spectroscopy involves a compact spectrometer, such as the AvaBenchOptical Bench by Avantes, coupled to an intensified CCD or CMOS camera.

A compact spectrometer, such as the AvaBenchOptical Bench by Avantes, is coupled to an intensified CCD or CMOS camera. The input of the intensifier matches the size and spectral range of the projected spectrum. The output is fiber coupled to the CCD or CMOS image sensor. The image intensifier with nanosecond gating provides spectroscopy on a nanosecond timescale. The combination with the intensified high speed CMOS camera allows a recording rate of tens of thousands spectra per second.
