FHSA-TTL Filter and Cuvette Holder

The FHSA-TTL is a sample holder for filters and cuvettes that includes manual attenuation control and an electronic shutter for taking dark readings. As a filter holder, the FHSA-TTL accommodates filters up to 25 mm diameter and 7 mm thick. For cuvette measurements, the holder can be adjusted for 10 mm square cuvettes.Full Detail


Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

LIBS is a powerful technique for rapid, real-time elemental analysis of a wide range of materials, from metal and gemological samples to chemical and biological agents. With LIBS, there is virtually no sample preparation necessary and detection sensitivity is possible to parts-per-million and parts-per-picogram levels. Systems can be configured for spectral analysis across all or part of the 200-980 nm range, with optical resolution of ~0.1 nm (FWHM).

Raman sample holder

Ocean Optics offers several sample holders for Raman analysis of liquids and solids, including a multipurpose holder that can be configured for fluorescence and other measurements. The holders accommodate Raman probes from 9.5 mm-12.7 mm diameter and 1 cm pathlength cuvettes and vials of various dimensions.Full Detail


Flame-Resistant Fiber Probe

The FL-400 is a heat-resistant fiber optic probe that couples via a fiber and splice bushing to our spectrometers to measure in situ emission spectra. Typical samples include dissolved metals and high-temperature plasmas, but these probes are also useful for measurements close to a high-temperature object like a furnace or flame.Full Detail


Longpass Flow Cells

LPC Longpass Flow Cells couple to Ocean Optics spectrometers and light sources for measurement of low-volume and low-concentration aqueous samples. The cells are available in standard and microvolume versions, with pathlengths ranging from 1 cm-500 cm and internal volume levels from 2.4 µL-1,250 µL.
