The NIRQuest512-2.2 from Ocean Optics, Dunedin, FL, is a NIR spectrometer with response from 900–2200 nm and suited for use in applications such as moisture detection, chemical analysis, and high-resolution laser and optical fiber characterization. The device uses a high-stability, 512-element Hamamatsu InGaAs array detector in a compact optical bench with two-stage thermoelectric cooler and low-noise electronics. Options include 6 gratings and 5 sizes of optical bench entrance slits. Depending on the configuration, the spectrometer can achieve optical resolution of ~0.5 nm–5.0 nm FWHM. Other features include external hardware triggering and SpectraSuite modular, Java-based spectroscopy platform.
