Ultra-compact FT-IR spectrometer (Nanoquest)

/ Spectrometers

Based on Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) technology, the NanoQuest spectrometer collects spectral data over a wide spectral range (1350-2500 nm)

The sensor’s patented micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology allows for a continuous-wave Michelson interferometer to be created monolithically on a MEMS chip. This enables detection of all wavelengths simultaneously, and mitigates the effects of motion on sensor stability.
