Incorporating the latest technology to achieve high sensitivity, high resolution, and an ultra-low stray light level, leading the way to new solutions
Shimadzu developed the world’s first UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer with three detectors, consisting of a PMT (photomultiplier tube) for the ultraviolet and visible regions and InGaAs and cooled PbS detectors for the near-infrared region. With conventional instruments that use only PMT and PbS detectors, there is a drop in sensitivity in the crossover region between those detectors. Using an InGaAs detector to cover this crossover region, however, ensures high sensitivity across the entire measured wavelength range, and gives a noise level of 0.00003 Abs at 1500 nm. In addition to the main UV-3600 Plus unit, the Multi-purpose large-sample compartment and the Integrating sphere attachment also feature three detector, enabling the high-sensitivity measurement of solid samples.
High Resolution, Ultra-Low Stray-Light, and Wide Wavelength Range
A high-performance double monochromator makes it possible to attain an ultra-low stray-light level (0.00005 % max. at 340 nm) with a high resolution (maximum resolution: 0.1 nm). The wide wavelength range of 185 to 3,300 nm enables measurement across the ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared regions. This instrument can perform spectrophotometry for a variety of applications.
