Shamrock 193i spectrograph with iDus CCD and Newton EMCCD detectors

Andor Technology’s highly popular and successful Czerny-Turner spectrograph family Shamrock has a new member: the “little” Shamrock 193i. 

Shamrock 193i features:

  • 193 mm focal length
  • Fast F/3.6 aperture
  • Very high spectral resolution (0.14 nm with 1200 l/mm grating)
  • Automatic focus (active focus technology)
  • Astigmatism-corrected optical imaging
  • Outstanding multi-track and imaging properties
  • Motorized dual grating turret
  • Quick and easy turret exchange by RFID technology
  • Choice of one or two detector output ports
  • Silver-coated mirrors and gratings for high sensitivity in the NIR and SWIR
  • Compact and robust design
  • Comprehensive accessories
  • USB interface
  • Comes preset and spectrally calibrated
  • Compatible with all Andor CCD, EMCCD, ICCD and InGaAs detectors for measurements from the VUV to the NIR/SWIR
  • Connection facilities for microscopes
  • Intuitive control with Andor’s spectroscopy software Solis
  • Compatible with proprietary programs with software development kits for Windows, Linux or Matlab
  • Integration in µManager software

Shamrock 193i is a perfect addition to the motorized Shamrock spectrographs 303i, 500i and 750. Despite its short focal length of only 193 mm, it features an excellent spectral resolution of 0.14 nm (1200 l/mm grating, 13.5 µm pixel sensor) perfectly suitable for a variety of spectroscopic applications. With an aperture of F/3.6, Shamrock 193i is faster and more sensitive than its bigger brothers. With a motorized dual grating turret, connection facilities for two detectors and a vast amount of accessories, Shamrock 193i is a highly flexible and powerful spectrograph for both everyday routine measurements and sophisticated scientific fundamental research in areas like

  • Fluorescence and luminescence spectroscopy
  • Raman spectroscopy
  • Plasma spectroscopy and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS)
  • Time-resolved spectroscopy
  • Micro-spectroscopy
  • Absorption, transmission and reflectance spectroscopy

We believe that the Shamrock 193i will soon become a popular spectroscopy solution for all looking for an outstanding price/performance ratio.
