IRIS Spectrometer


The SPECTRAL Industries IRIS echelle spectrometer is now available.  Inspired by R&D for the ExoMars mission to Mars, we developed a very efficient and robust spectrometer for application on Earth.  Our unique technology offers space technology quality hardware, that can be used under a wide range of conditions. Ideal for Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy research and applications, but also for fluorescence or Raman spectroscopy.


If you need reliable characterization in a flexible, robust package, this is your spectrometer!  It features proven better signal-to-noise-ratio than leading competitors and is ready for any environment from the field to the factory.

Advantages of SPECTRAL Industries IRIS spectrometer


The SPECTRAL Industries IRIS spectrometer has the following advantages:

  • Echelle type spectrometer: unique combination of high bandwidth and high resolution in one instrument
  • High throughput / efficiency compared to other echelle spectrometers: lower detection limits or shorter integration time
  • All components selected and designed to work together harmoniously, while maintaining flexibility for OEM customization
  • Robust design, very low temperature influence and able to withstand harsh environments
  • Can be applied to combine Raman and LIBS functionality in one instrument: both molecular and element information from one instrument
  • Calibration software available, fully automated calibration under development
  • Spectrometer suited for 180 – 800 nm, deep-UV CMOS camera available
