How Does a Spectrometer Work? A Look Inside the Ocean Optics Optical Bench
The photons used in spectroscopy encounter many components and undergo a variety of processes before registering as a spectrum. What exactly happens to these photons once they enter the optical bench? Let’s look at their journey inside a spectrometer.
We are Ocean – 25 Years of Spectroscopy Solutions
Our customers have used our spectrometers to explore, investigate and monitor remarkable places. In this video, we have some fun and pay homage to the amazing people who have made our first 25 years so inspiring.
