Customers are requesting compact modules for innovative spectroscopy applications. Anteryon’s spectrometer assemblies are a combination of Anteryon’s core competences and optimized for mass-production, product-diversity and scalability from low to high-volume quantities. No time-consuming manual alignment will be required anymore in the production process of micro-spectrometers; calibration and adjustment is done by software algorithms afterwards in the application. This makes the unit truly software configurable and it greatly reduces assembly time in production and product costs.
Anteryon’s unique approach relies on using the newest CMOS sensor technologies combined with proprietary grating structures. These detector-grating modules form the basic building blocks for spectrometry. The modules are designed as a plug-in module with a USB3.0 interface for the spectrometer software. Different grating-detector combinations are utilized for different applications. Simple, low-cost spectrometers as well as high-performance spectrometers can be built using the same product architecture.
The heart of the platform is the detector-grating module with a form factor of typically one cubic inch, enabling local measurements in a confined environment. The assemblies are easy to integrate in a network of sensors due to the modular setup and use of known standards for interfacing.
• Modular setup, easy to customize
• Easy integration with light sources and equipment due to small form factor
• Wide wavelength range in small form factor: 200nm to 1700nm
• Local measurements in confined environments due to small form factor of 1 cubic inch
• Latest CMOS and InGaAs sensor technology for image processing
• Standard USB 3.0 interface
• Scalable from low volume to high volume production
Anteryon’s Fabry-Pérot module is a tuneable optical filter for visible light and infra-red applications up to 2500nm. Due to its modular design it is easy to integrate in multi-spectral imaging, interferometer or tuneable light source applications.
With the Fabry-Pérot module you can select specific wavelengths to be transmitted. Its design is economic for small up to large volume production. The FP-module consists of a pair of parallel mirrors separated by a small, tuneable gap. Due to interference effects, light entering the FP-module will only be able to exit if the gap is a multiple of half the wavelength of the light.
An electronic control box with USB-interface allows the user to control the individual wavelengths. The unit is developed for applications in spectroscopy and spectral imaging, or as key-module inside a tuneable light source for microscopy. The aperture size is 8 mm x 8 mm. Other aperture dimensions (larger and smaller) are currently under development.
• Suitable for visible and shortwave infrared (SWIR) applications: 400 nm to 2500 nm
• Fast and accurate wavelength setting due to its closed-loop control
• Colour measurements and multispectral imaging possible due to its wavelength resolution of typical
• Square aperture size of 8 mm x 8 mm,
other apertures are under development and can be customized to your needs
• High-speed change of transmission wavelength up to 800Hz
• Scalable from low volume to high volume production due to its modular configuration
• Easy computer control due to its USB interface and internal micro-controller
