|First UV-VIS-NIR Spectrophotometer with three detectors
The SolidSpec 3700/ 3700DUV is designed for the highest sensitivity.
It is the first UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer with three detectors:
a photomultiplier tube (PMT) detector for the ultraviolet
and visible region, and furthermore InGaAs and PbS detectors
for the near-infrared region. The use of the InGaAs and PbS
detectors makes the sensitivity in the near-infrared region
Up to now, all conventional spectrophotometers have used
a photomultiplier tube detector for the ultraviolet and visible
region and a PbS detector for the near-infrared region. However,
neither detector is sensitive near the detector switchover,
so high sensitivity measurement in this range is not possible
with conventional spectrophotometers. The SolidSpec allows
high sensitivity measurements even in the switchover range
using an InGaAs detector.
Wider Wavelength Range
The SolidSpec-3700DUV uses materials with low absorption in
deep UV for the light sources, detectors and integrating spheres.
It has the capability to measure from 3300 nm down to the
deep ultraviolet region at 165 nm with the direct detection
unit (option) or to 175 nm with an integrating sphere, by
purging both the optical and the sample compartment with nitrogen
Extra Large Sample Compartment
The large sample compartment (900W x 700D x 350H, mm) allows
large samples to be measured with a non-destructive analysis
method. The vertical optical path makes it possible to measure
large samples while keeping them horizontal. The entire sample
area of 12 inches or 300 x 300 mm samples is measurable by
mounting the automatic X-Y stage (option).
A wide variety of accessories, such as absolute specular
reflectance attachments and relative specular reflectance
attachments have been developed for the SolidSpec-3700DUV
in order to expand its application range and makes this system
unique in terms of flexibility. Automatic measurements can
be performed with the optional automatic X-Y Stage by entering
the intervals and the rotation angles for the sample.
The powerful software package UVProbe for system control
and data processing functions allows an easy operation and
includes a wide variety of data processing functions such
as peak/valley detection, area calculation and others. Security
features for each user, limiting the use of specific functions,
and an audit trail for the instrument and the data are all
standard features too.
