An extreme resolution spectrometer that is capable of resolving extremely close spectral features


    X-RES is the perfect spectrometer for those who demand an extreme-resolution performance for resolving that is capable of resolving close-aligned spectral features as precise as 0.05 nm (FWHM). Assembled in a robust and compact optical bench with a focal distance of 100 mm, X-RES is capable of delivering a great performance and sensitivity with a large peak symmetry over the operational wavelength range, which makes these series of spectrometers the perfect solution for high-resolution applications.

    Features such as user-interchangeable slits and optical filters, power status indicator, and triggering functions allows for a perfect integration of this spectrometer in your setup. X-RES is available in a ready-to-use (for more common applications) and user-customized (for more specific applications) configuration for narrow UV-Vis and Vis-NIR range and extended UV-Vis-NIR range.

    The ideal solution for high-resolution applications

    X-RES combine an improved optical design with a focal distance of 100 mm with the best available optics to provide great capability of resolving spectral features as precise as 0.05 nm across the full UV-Vis-NIR range.

    Control the sensitivity and resolution of your spectrometer

    With the X-RES, you can take advantage of interchangeable slits and optical filters. User-interchangeable slits offer an easy and simple way of setting the ideal optical resolution/sensitivity while interchangeable optical filters provide the user with the ability to narrow the operational wavelength range of the spectrometer. Add a Slit Kit to your order and get all the flexibility you need.

    Easy to integrate in your setup

    As a fiber optic spectrometer, X-RES is ready to couple to a wide range of setups without the need for complex optical alignments. This flexibility is complemented with a number of integration tools that include triggers (trigger in/out and delays) and software packages for LabVIEW or DLL, for software development. X-RES and all spectroscopic components of your setup can be centralized for full control with our new SPEC Hub solution.

    Configure your spectrometer

    Customization of several optical components provides you with the flexibility to configure X-RES for more specific applications. In addition to user-interchangeable slits and optical filters, the possibility of selecting the diffraction grating, adding a collecting lens, or choosing the detector version helps you to define the operational spectral range, sensitivity, and optical resolution of your X-RES.
