The PolySpek Neo is the new multi-CCD, multi-optic desktop spectrometer from ARUN Technology, the originators of CCD based metals analysis.
Almost 30 years of CCD-OES know-how have gone into the design of the new PolySpek Neo. Up to four separate optical systems can be incorporated to cover the emission spectrum required for metallurgical work, which conventionally lies between 130 and 680 nanometers. Particular combinations of the optical systems are available for specific single matrix or multi-matrix applications. The optical systems have been tailored to provide different dispersions over different wavelength ranges, with the optimal resolution in the ultraviolet region of 130 to 200 nanometers. Less resolution is required in the infrared region between 470 and 680 nanometers where only a few key emission lines need to be resolved.
Neither optical fibres, nor vacuum pumps are used in the PolySpek Neo and only the ultraviolet optical section (if required) is Argon (optionally Nitrogen) purged.
