Ocean Optics has said that its line of low-cost, small-footprint modular spectrometers and accessories can be installed for different UV-Vis-NIR applications. Spectrometers and accessories also used to measure the spectral output of both the sun and radiant sources such as solar simulators.

For solar cell production, the company’s spectrometers can be configured for measuring thin-film thickness and endpoint detection. These measurements are main quality control parameters that, if managed well, can help manufacturers to lower waste, eliminate off-specification product and increase yield.

Ocean Optics spectrometers, including the company’s USB4000-series spectrometers and the new Jaz modular sensing suite, are also suitable for monitoring the absolute and relative spectral irradiance of both the sun and artificial sunlight sources.
