Camlin Photonics Atlas Series
- Czerny-Turner Monochromator  
The Atlas Series of Czerny-Turner Monochromators provide a customisable range of high quality, direct-drive monochromator systems. These systems incorporate multi-grating turret design features, and come available with focal lengths of 150 mm,300 mm, 500mm and 750mm. At the shorter focal lengths, they provide a cost-effective tool for low to medium resolution spectral analysis or tuneable light sources, whilst the longer focal length instruments provide the resolution needed to conduct high precision measurements in photo-luminescence and laser fluorescence.
Key Features:
  • High precision wavelength accuracy and repeatability
  • Choice of slit and port configuration on both inputs and outputs
  • Interchangeable grating turret on precision kinematic mount
  • Extensive range of high quality gratings
