McPherson is a manufacturer of scientific instruments, with over 60 years’ of experience. We specialize in high performance spectrometers and purpose built spectroscopy systems. We also know the soft x-ray and vacuum ultraviolet region and provide related state of the art components and services. Our optimized spectrometers are for wavelengths from 1 nanometer to 20 microns and energies from 0.05 eV up to 2 keV.
