On November 2nd, SPECTRAL employee Dr. Marinus Dalm successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled “Sensor-based sorting opportunities for hydrothermal ore deposits” at Delft University of Technology. Marinus joined SPECTRAL in September 2018 strengthening our team with mining and sensor-based sorting expertise. For an animation on......

We successfully demonstrated SPECTRAL’s LIBS sensor 150 meters below the surface in an old silver mine. We showed that our LIBS sensor equipment is robust and transportable for operation down in the mine and that it delivers high quality LIBS signals in this harsh environment. Examples:......

Chemical element mapping of drill cores is a new service SPECTRAL Industries is offering now. We can perform up to 50 x 50 mm² area scans with down to 100 x 100 µm² spatial resolution, visualising any element, including light elements e.g. Lithium and Carbon.......

More and more applications of LIBS on liquids emerge. Examples are waste water monitoring, agriculture water analysis and oil analysis. To demonstrate the capabilities of the SPECTRAL LIBS system on liquids we have performed two experiments. The first one involves real-time detection of low concentration......

IRIS is the first echelle spectrometer without compromises: high resolution, large bandwidth, high throughput, accurate gating, compact and robust. To show the benefits and possibilities of the IRIS echelle spectrometer we have published a white paper. Topics covered (amongst others): its unmatched throughput, UV performance,......

SPECTRAL will be attending PITTCON 2018 in Orlando, Florida USA. Demoing our IRIS can be arranged.  Just contact Ad Maas +31 6 2280 7946...

Dutch newspaper Leidsch Dagblad published a major article on SPECTRAL Industries. The publication was part of a series covering high-tech innovation in the greater Leiden area. SPECTRAL’s CEO Ad Maas explains the technology and talks about our ambitions. The article can be downloaded via this......

To demonstrate the capabilities of our LIBS In-line Grade Scanner for Ore Sorting, we have made a YouTube video: you can find the video here. SPECTRAL has realized the in-line grade scanner in close collaboration with Eijkelkamp SonicSampDrill (www.sonicsampdrill.com)....

Until recently, only iCCD’s and PMT’s were fast enough to enable stable and reproducible gated LIBS measurements. Now, SPECTRAL Industries presents the gated LIBS functionality on its IRIS echelle spectrometers using CMOS technology camera’s. Our advanced (patent pending) feedback scheme allows for < 100 ns......
