SpectraPro® HRSHigh Performance Imaging Spectrographs

SpectraPro HRS 300 & 500

The SpectraPro® HRS ensures high spectral resolution, as well as an astigmatism-corrected design for multichannel fiber applications. With dual exit ports the SpectraPro HRS can be used as two array detectors or as both a monochromator and spectrograph.

  • 60% improvement in spectral resolution and SNR
  • Astigmatism-corrected optical system
  • Interchangeable grating turrets
  • Calibrated with IntelliCal system
  • Optimised for multi-detector operation

Key Features

New ResXtreme Spectral Deconvolution Technology

ResXtreme improves spectral resolution and peak intensity of spectral lines by up to 60%, with an overall improvement in spectral uniformity of 60% at all CCD positions.

Significantly improving signal-to-noise, ResXtreme is included as standard with all SpectraPro HRS systems, ensuring optimal spectral results.

Full-size Dual Focal Planes

The SpectraPro HRS has two ports for the mounting and operation of two cameras, enabling operation as both a monochromator and a spectrograph.

AccuDrive graph

AccuDrive™

AccuDrive™  software is able to automatically identify the turret and gratings installed on start-up performing several optical alignment routines to ensure accurate initialization.

This allows for an improvement in wavelength accuracy and repeatability, outperforming typical scanning systems in accuracy and reproducibility.

Customizable Experimental Set-up

The SpectraPro HRS can be tailored for increased wavelengths (rectangular format sensors) and spectral imaging applications (square format sensors). Both front-and back-illuminated devices, as well as deep depletion devices, allow for multiple experimental set-ups.

The SpectraPro HRS is also compatible with numerous accessories such as light sources, single-channel detectors, fiber optics bundles and filter wheels.

Gratings and Turrets

Interchangeable Triple Grating Turrets

The SpectraPro HRS is able to optimize systems for wavelength coverage, optical throughput, and spectral resolution via three grating turrets. These turrets feature kinematic mounts and self-align to the optical system when installed.

Exclusive High-Performance Optical Coatings

Taking advantage of the Acton #1900 enhanced aluminium optical coating, the SpectraPro HRS has highest reflectivity from UV-IR providing maximum optical system throughput.

The protected silver option provides ≥98% average reflectivity from NIR to 400 nm.

IntelliCal Wavelength Calibration System

With 10x greater wavelength accuracy, the IntelliCal wavelength calibration system uses dual mercury and neon-argon light sources to calibrate wavelengths within the UV-IR range.

The intensity calibration corrects relative intensity of spectra data and removes hardware includes and etaloning effects.

Lightfield Graph

Powered by LightField Software

Powerful and intuitive software with built-in math engine allows for the complete control of cameras and spectrographs, with real-time image analysis and spectral data.

LightField software provides seamless integration of hardware controls and direct data acquisition into programmes such as National Instruments’ LabVIEW® and MathWorks’ MATLAB®. This software also fully supports IntelliCal automated wavelength and intensity calibration.
