This mini-spectrometer is a polychromator integrated with optical elements, an image sensor and a driver circuit; its wavelength detection range includes visible to near IR (320-1000 nm). Light to be measured is guided into the entrance port of the spectrometer through an optical fiber (model A976201, core diameter=0.6 mm, length=1.5 m with SMA905D connectors at both ends) and the spectrum measured with the built-in image sensor is output from the USB port to a PC for data acquisition. It is a high sensitivity mini-spectrometers employing a back-thinned type CCD image sensor. Its sensitivity makes it ideal for low-light-level measurements. Its software allows setting measurement conditions, acquiring and saving data, and displaying graphs.
