The MicroNIR 1700 and MicroNIR 2200

JDSU has created an ultra-compact, lightweight, low-cost, near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer that relies on a linear variable filter (LVF) as the dispersing element and uses advanced thin-film coating design and manufacturing technology. The LVF is a bandpass filter coating that is intentionally wedged in one direction. Since the centre wavelength of the bandpass is a function of the coating thickness, the wavelength transmitted through the filter will vary linearly in the direction of the wedge. The JDSU line of LVF spectral sensors uses an LVF coupled to a linear detector array to create a sensor capable of providing spectral information for…

VIAVI MicroNIR 1700

The MicroNIR 1700 from VIAVI (ex JDSU) is the world’s smallest NIR spectrometer. The ‘fit for purpose’ design allows the user to apply NIR in a way never seen before. The MicroNIR family of spectrometers is the next generation of ultra-compact near-infrared spectrometer sensors and analysers, solving customer needs across multiple industries. The pharmaceutical, agriculture and chemical industries have deployed the MicroNIR spectrometer for real-time, non-intrusive chemical and physical analysis of materials and monitoring of processes. This has resulted in improved quality control, reduced costs and faster decision-making. The MicroNIR spectrometer’s small form factor, its cost-effectiveness, exceptional performance and ease…
