AvaSpec-Mini(CL): CMOS Inside

Avantes is excited to release the next generation of AvaSpec-Mini spectrometers with CMOS detectors and advanced electronics and communications. Like the original AvaSpec-Mini, the CL series is only the size of a deck of cards, though with excellent temperature and wavelength stability. This instrument is easy to take anywhere you like, and is very well suited for handheld applications.

  • Handheld Applications
  • High-Resolution
  • LIBS
  • Plasma/OES (Optical Emission Spectroscopy)
  • Pulsed Radiometry
