Manual single grating spectrograph

Shamrock SR-163 from Andor Technology

Robust, compact and manual 163 mm spectrograph in crossed Czerny-Turner setup. Combined with exchangeable grating and detector the system is a general purpose device for multiple applications in spectroscopy.

  • Compact & rugged design
  • Imaging-configurable platform
  • Wide range of interchangeable gratings
  • Variety of fixed slits
  • Large choice of light coupling interfaces

Further information

The Shamrock 163 is the most compact research-grade Czerny-Turner spectograph on the market. Its 163 mm focal length, high F/3.6 aperture and wide range of seamlessly interchangeable gratings, slits and light coupling accessories make it the ideal tool for general benchtop spectroscopy measurements.
