UM2280 handWe are pleased to announce that AP Technologies has been appointed UK and Ireland distributor for OtO Photonics' full range of spectrometers, light sources, spectral measurement system, accessories and SpectraSmart software.

 

OtO Photonics was founded as “OtO Science” in 2006 in Hsinchu City, Taiwan with the objective of leveraging Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) micro grating technology to develop compact spectrometers. Renamed OtO Photonics in 2010 the company now provides a range of classic Czerny-Turner cavity spectrometers alongside unique microspectrometers based on their innovative semiconductor grating chip technology.

 

OtO's "SmartEngine", "EagleEye" and "SideWinder" C-T spectrometers cover the spectrum from 180nm to 1700nm with CCD, CMOS and linear InGaAs array detectors including back-thinned and cooled back-thinned technologies.

 

The "UltraMicro" series of microspectrometers utilise OtO's "non-spherical, mass-producible" grating which replaces the "collimator-plane grating-focusing mirror" optical structure used in C-T spectrometers. Combining grating and focusing functions into one micro-sized component enables extremely compact dimensions as small as 23.2mm x 31mm x 8.5mm (6.1cm³).

 

The microchip concave grating technology used in UltraMicro-Series microspectrometers leverages patented algorithms to calculate curvature and ray-tracing to eliminate aberrations and achieve high resolution of 2nm. When combined with OtO’s high-precision optomechanical designs and proprietary "SpectraSmart" software the MEMS grating technology enables microspectrometers which push the performance envelope to deliver the benefits of high accuracy, ultra-compactness, shock resistance, weather resistance and low cost making them ideal for high volume deployment in OEM instruments including handheld devices.

 

OtO's "AirAlliance" series adds WiFi functionality to their full range of C-T and MEMS spectrometers and in combination with SpectraSmart software and SDK toolkits allows connection to up to 5 PC/tablet/smartphone devices (AP mode) and an unlimited number of devices in Client Mode.

 

All of OtO' spectrometers are offered in a range of standard configurations of detector, grating pitch and slit size to suit common applications:-

 

  • Electro-optical inspection – i.e. LED testing, solar panel & thin film measurement

 

  • Colour matching & management

 

  • Environmental monitoring – i.e. water- and air-quality control

 

  • Biomedical measurement – Blood & DNA analysis

 

It is also possible to define detector, resolution and bandwidth for specific applications.

 

OtO’s unique “stray light calibration” process optimises the performance of standard low cost spectrometers to achieve stray light levels as low as 0.01% - better than models costing $30,000 and upwards.

  We are pleased to announce that AP Technologies has been appointed UK and Ireland distributor for KETEK GmbH's range of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs).   KETEK, based in Munich Germany, are well-established as the world's leading manufacturer of Silicon Drift Detectors (SDDs) and over recent years have applied their expertise in silicon to developing a range of high performance Silicon Photomultipliers based on technologies developed in-house and with the world famous Fraunhofer Institute.   KETEK's Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) surpass the current standard detectors (PMT, APD...
Opto Diode Corporation have introduced lensed versions of their 265nm and 280nm UVC LEDs.   The new OD-265-003 and OD-280-003 LEDs feature industry-leading chip technology enabling high optical powers of 0.58mW (265nm) and 0.75mW (280nm) at 20mA drive current.   Packaged in industry-standard TO-46 format with a lensed cap both devices offer a narrow beam angle of just 9° FWHM.   Both LEDs incorporate a protection diode to eliminate the risk of damage due to reverse bias.   Opto Diode claim industry-leading reliability with an "L70" (degradation to 70% of initial output)...
OtO Photonics' new RedSparrow (RS) series extends their proprietary MEMS-based grating-collimator technology into the NIR region.   RedSparrow is extremely compact, measuring just 40 x 40 x 18 mm³ (<30cm³) including the removable external control board, dramatically smaller than OtO's own SideWinder C-T NIR spectrometer (~300cm³) which is itself considered to be a compact design.   Despite its compact form-factor RedSparrow's rigid metal package and optical bench provide excellent thermal, humidity and shock/vibration stability performance.   RedSparrow features a...
Opto Diode Corporation have introduced two new UVC LEDs emitting at 265nm and 280nm.   The new OD-265-001 and OD-280-001 LEDs feature industry-leading chip technology enabling high optical powers of 0.85mW (265nm) and 1.2mW (280nm) with a medium beam angle of 70° FWHM.   Packaged in industry-standard TO-46 format with a quartz window cap the LEDs incorporate a protection diode to eliminate the risk of damage due to reverse bias.   Opto Diode claim industry-leading reliability with an "L70" (degradation to 70% of initial output) of greater than 1000 hours when operated at 20mA DC in an...
OtO Photonics' PocketHawk (PH) series are crossed-cavity Czerny-Turner spectrometers operating from 330nm to 1050nm.   PocketHawk offers the performance benefits of classic C-T cavity designs in a significantly reduced package of just 65 x 65 x 25.2mm³ (<107cm³), including the external control board. This is dramatically smaller than OtO's own SmartEngine C-T spectrometer (~300cm³) which is itself considered to be a compact design.   Despite its compact form-factor PocketHawk offers excellent performance with high optical resolution, high sensitivity, low stray light, and...
OtO Photonics' new HummingBird (HB) series are crossed-cavity Czerny-Turner spectrometers operating from 180nm to 1100nm.   HummingBird offers the performance benefits of classic C-T cavity designs in a significantly reduced package of just 83 x 75.5 x 26.75mm³ (<168cm³), dramatically smaller than OtO's own SmartEngine C-T spectrometer (~360cm³) which is itself considered to be a compact design.   Despite its compact form-factor HummingBird sacrifices none of the performance of OtO's highest selling SmartEngine spectrometers and offers high optical resolution, high sensitivity,...
