PolySpek Neo

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.

More Info


PolySpek Neo

The PolySpek Neo is a high-performance desktop spectrometer. With an increased wavelength coverage and improved resolution the PolySpek Neo is positioned above the entry end PolySpek Junior for more demanding applications.

The overall optical design has been enhanced, and improvements in CCD technology utilised to further improve the performance of the PolySpek Neo, while retaining the major benefit of earlier units, with the ability to analyse elements across the complete range of commercial metals and alloys. Additional bases, matrix calibrations and elements can be analysed without the additional hardware costs normally associated with classical photomultiplier spectrometers. Calibration is still required for each new material using certified reference materials.


PolySpek Neo is available in different versions
