Spectrometers from McPherson can now more easily detect Mid- and Long-Wave Infrared light. Grating groove density and optimum blaze wavelengths range from ultraviolet and visible wavelengths 0.2 up to 20 microns long-wave infrared. They provide spectroscopic capability to interrogate feature-rich region of long-wave infrared with array detectors. Ideal for imaging applications in chemistry, biology, aerospace and defense
A fast spectrometer is essential to collect light in both the VUV and the IR regimes of the spectrum. Whether the spectrometer is being used as a light source to deliver the most light possible or is used to collect a signal, the higher collection efficiency of faster f number and optimized optics coating is essential. This makes the Model 207 and the Model 207V ideal spectrometers for experiments conducted in the VUV or the IR.
McPherson is pleased to announce the availability of two new deep UV spectroscopy workstation’s intending to facilitate teaching and experimentation in vacuum and ultraviolet physics. The workstations are ideal for spectroscopy experiments in the vacuum ultraviolet regime, potentially advancing quantum information science and engineering. Spectroscopy was central to the development of quantum mechanics, including blackbody radiation and Einstein’s photoelectric effect.
The new 642-1 Soft X-Ray (SXR) light source from McPherson features a six position anode carousel. Users can easily change anode target materials while in high, or even ultra-high vacuum (UHV). Use of different solid target anode materials allows tuning emission eV energy or wavelength to the experiment. The vacuum housing of the source features standard NW40K vacuum flanges (optionally DN40CF). It also features two equivalent output beams. These provide ability for sample/reference comparison and device calibration. Filter wheels, gate valves, pinhole collimators, and energy- or other standard detectors are also available.
High energy optical spectroscopy has a new “power tool.” Shallow 1.5 degree grazing incidence angle improves efficiency for high energy photons, wavelengths below 5 nanometers. McPherson model 251MX spectrograph is optimal for energies low as 8 eV (150 nanometers wavelength) and high as 2000 eV (0.6 nanometers).
For water window imaging, HHG laser spectroscopy, x-ray plasma diagnostics, extreme ultraviolet lithography, optical characterization, metrology and calibration the McPherson Model 251MX delivers uncompromising performance. The Model 251MX is easy to use and delivers results over the wide 0.5 to 150 nanometer range simply by indexing diffraction gratings. See detailed specifications on the data sheet.
