Echelle spectrograph

Mechelle 5000 from Andor Technology
Patented echelle optical design with a spectral band pass from 200 nm to 975 nm and a spectral resolution of λ/Δλ = 5000. The Andor Mechelle spectrograph displays the entire range in a single two-dimensional image and automatically captures the spectrum. The device works without any moving part.Features
  • Compact and robust design
  • Patented optical design
  • Auto-temperature correction
  • N2 purged
  • Pre-aligned detector/spectrograph

Further information

Andor’s new Mechelle ME5000 echelle spectrograph has been designed to provide simultaneous recording of a wide wavelength range (200 - 975 nm) in one acquisition. It has no moving components and is available in a pre-aligned detector/spectrometer format. The Andor Mechelle spectrograph is based on the echelle grating principal and its patented optical design provides extremely low cross-talk and maximum resolution compared with other spectrographs.
