Our high performance CCD-based spectrograph

We have developed a potent spectrometer system, able to accumulate extremely accurate spectra, over a wide spectral range, in less than 100msec whilst using a minimum amount of measurement light. A high-sensitivity, cooled CCD camera forms the heart of the system. Our software developments allow the system to be synchronised with a pulse laser, with changes in spectra associated with photochemical and photophysical transformations to be monitored in real time.
