Andor’s Kymera 193i spectrograph has been designed with research-grade performance, versatility and ease of use in mind.
The ‘intelligent’ motorized adaptive focusing allows access to the very best spectral resolution performance in any configuration with un-matched repeatability. Its F/3.6 aperture, combined with Andor’s world-class range of ultra-sensitive UV-NIR and SWIR detectors, offers a ‘workhorse’ spectroscopy platform with superb photon collection efficiency, ideal for challenging low-light micro-fluorescence / Raman applications or routine spectral acquisitions.
The indexed grating turret, dual output port and extensive accessories range provides a highly configurable platform to best match Academic and OEMs specific performance requirements. Dedicated micro-spectroscopy interfaces - including modular ‘cage system’ - allow seamless integration to microscopy setups, with Kymera spectrograph and accessories user-friendly control in ?Manager to provide a quick and easy setup of complex micro-spectroscopy acquisition including chemical mapping.
193 mm focal length, F/3.6 aperture - Ideal combination for a wide range of applications, ranging from luminescence/ photoluminescence spectroscopy, to more demanding, higher resolution Raman spectroscopy
Adaptive Focus (patented) I - d) Intelligent and user-friendly interface, for uncompromised spectral resolution performance.
Dual-grating turret with xPressID™ RFID technology - Seamless field-upgradability with precise indexing interface, and user-friendly hatch access. Automatic gratings recognition and setup, with embedded RFID tags - minimum user interaction.
Astigmatism-corrected optical design - Toroidal optics enable multi-track fiber detection and excellent sample image relay from a microscope at the grating ‘0’ order
Dual outputs - Extended wavelength coverage when combining Andor UV-NIR CCD, EMCCD, ICCD and InGaAs cameras. Slit option for monochromator operation.
USB interface - Plug-and-play connectivity, ideal for laptop operation alongside Andor USB cameras
Seamless connection to microscopes - Adjustable height feet and choice of direct, lens relay, or cage system-based interfaces. 15 mm wide-aperture input slit for extended sample image relay and spectral analysis through the same optical path.
Protected silver-coated optics option - Most efficient for NIR/SWIR detection when used in conjunction with Andor InGaAs cameras
Pre-aligned, pre-calibrated instrument - Individually characterized spectrograph-detector systems for out-of-the box operation
High repetition rate shutter - 10 Hz continuous operation and 40 Hz burst mode for ultrafast background acquisition and detector protection.
