Imaging spectrograph MWIR

Our imaging spectrograph for the wavelength range 3 to 5 µm covers the thermal waveband in the MWIR. The MWIR ImSpector is a unique spectrograph to be integrated with cooled InSb focal plane arrays.

ImSpector systems can easily be integrated into user setups with MWIR detectors. Integration may be done by the user or by SPECIM upon request.

  • Wavelength range: 3 - 5 µm
  • High throughput, high sensitivity
  • Very small optical distortions
  • Very good spectral resolution
  • Can be integrated by the user

Further information

ImSpector M50M offers excellent spectral and optical performance. Optical distortions like Keystone, smile, and aberrations are extremely small, which facilitates excellent and repeatable spectral analysis over a wide line. In combination with a cooled InSb detector it is perfectly suited for new applications like black plastic sorting, art analysis or gas analysis.

The spectral resolution is 35 nm, dispersion is 560 nm/mm and the spatial resolution is better than 60 µm.

Two different lenses with a special coating for MWIR are available with the spectrograph.
