New MEMS Micro-Spectrometer for Water Quality Monitoring and Environmental Measurement Instruments

Oct 18 2015 Read 1567 Times

Hamamatsu Photonics (UK) introduces the latest development within its MEMS spectrometer range; the C12880MA, an ultra-compact, fingertip size spectrometer head offering wider spectral response and high sensitivity over the UV to visible range.

The new C12880MA offers a spectral range of 340 – 850 nm and a sensitivity two orders or magnitude higher than the original C12666MA Micro-Spectrometer, which won the 2015 Prism Award for detectors and sensors at Photonics West 2015. The new high-sensitivity C12880MA also offers 12 nm resolution, a high speed video rate of 5 MHz and incorporates a trigger function and a CMOS sensor with 288 pixels (14 x 200 um pixel size).

Realised by utilising Hamamatsu MEMS and image sensor technologies, the spectrometer measures only 20.1 × 12.5 × 10.1 mm in size, making it ideal for portable measurement devices (including compatibility with smartphones and tablets) in applications such as colour monitoring, LED testing, water quality monitoring and other environmental measurement instruments.
