Motorized Czerny-Turner spectrographs

From Andor Technology

The Andor Shamrock series offers a wide range of spectrographs to find a solution for every application. The main difference of the four different spectrometer types is the focal length: 193, 303, 500 and 750 mm. All are based on the Czerny-Turner optical design.

Pre-aligned, pre-calibrated spectrograph
Large choice of light coupling interfaces
Wide range of interchangeable gratings
Monochromator capabilities
Third party software support

The USB 2.0 interface of the Shamrock spectrographs allows full control of the motorized multi grating turret, the entrance slit and an optional filter wheel. Corrected mirrors enable multi-track spectroscopy and imaging capability in combination with commercial microscopes.

Andor Technology offers a spectroscopy-dedicated software interface that provides an interactive and intuitive real-time control platform. The Solis software enables state-of-the-art real-time control of detectors, spectrograph and motorized accessories at the touch of a button.

Choosing your spectrograph in three steps

  1. Use the table below to choose the spectrograph which is best suited to your application.
  2. Select the right gratings for a wide spectral coverage or high resolution by using the resolution calculator
  3. Get in touch with us, our knowledgeable product managers will review the spectrometer setup together with you and answer any technical questions you may have.

We look forward to discussing your application and experiment setup with you.
