Multichannel detectors

Solar Laser Systems offers a line of spectroscopic multi-channel detectors for monochromators and spectrographs (listed in the tables below or other upon the prior agreement with the manufacturer).

Detectors providing data transfer via Full-Speed USB interface (up to 12 Mbit/sec) are powered via the USB port from a PC. Powering of cooled detectors is provided from an external power supply. Power consumption is <6W for non-cooled detectors and <25W for cooled detectors. The thermostabilization system with a built-in Peltier-cooler ensures crystal temperature precision of ±0.10C.
