B&W Tek, Inc., an advanced instrumentation company producing optical spectroscopy and laser systems, is proud to announce the expansion of their Exemplar® smart spectrometer platform. This release is the first of many steps that will propel smart spectrometers to become the new standard across the industry and secure B&W Tek’s position in cutting edge technology of miniature spectrometers.
The Exemplar product line is already revolutionary for being the smartest, fastest and most synchronous line of miniature spectrometers available on the market. This makes them ideal for demanding applications such as high speed reaction kinetics, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), and real-time process monitoring.
Now, B&W Tek has added two new models, both featuring a low stray light “unfolded” Czerny-Turner spectrograph to provide exceptional performance, particularly below 400nm. The Exemplar LS provides all of the advantages of the low straylight spectrograph while still retaining an extremely small form factor, making it the perfect solution for integration into compact UV or UV/Vis spectrophotometer systems.
The Exemplar Plus builds on the advantages of the low stray light spectrograph by significantly increasing the focal length. This decreases the linear dispersion which dramatically improves the spectral resolution. Alternatively, this allows for the selection of lower groove density gratings in order to provide a wider spectral range. The Exemplar Plus also features a highly sensitive, high dynamic range TE Cooled back-thinned (BT) CCD detector with 2048 effective pixels. These features make the Exemplar Plus the most advanced miniature spectrometer available today.
“Our positioning statement of ‘Smart, Fast, Plays Well With Others’ is more than an advertising tagline, it truly embodies the philosophy behind the Exemplar smart spectrometer platform,” says Dr. Mike Kayat, VP of Sales & Marketing for B&W Tek, Inc. “Our customers can expect to see even more innovative models in the Exemplar product line in the future.”
The expansion of the Exemplar product line will truly change the community by setting a new standard for miniature spectrometers. As more smart spectrometers are delivered into the hands of researchers, engineers, and other members of the scientific community, these new, innovative tools will allow for the emergence of novel and unique applications that may not have been possible until now.
