PocketHawk is OtO Photonics' latest folded-cavity Czerny-Turner spectrometer offering the performance benefits of classic C-T cavity designs in a significantly more compact package.


PocketHawk is smaller than OtO's HummingBird folded C-T cavity spectrometers at just 65 x 65 x 29.8mm³ (~126cm³) and yet the optical bench provides excellent rigidity, ensuring a platform with industry-leading thermal, humidity, shock and vibration stability.


PocketHawk uses a high sensitivity 3000 pixel CCD sensor for operation from 330nm to 1050nm with a choice at launch of two gratings and 6 slit sizes giving resolution from 2.2nm FWHM to 12nm FWHM depending on the configuration of grating and slit.


The optical input is via an industry-standard SMA-905 multimode fibre connector whilst the externally mounted control board incorporates a 16 bit, 15MHz A/D converter with electrical interface via an external control board featuring a high speed (480Mbps) Micro USB 2.0 connector or 8-pin extension port.


OtO's SpectraSmart spectral management software is supplied with PocketHawk and includes a Windows Software Development Kit. Example code for control via Linux is also available upon request.
