Step 2a - Choosing The Right Platform vs Dispersion Requirements Recommended Spectral Range - Kymera 193i Gratings Resolution calculator Green Aberration-free region Orange Possible impact on system resolution Red Likely impact on system resolution Czerny-Turner spectrographs are designed to provide the best optical performance for a range of grating angles as reflected on the green parts of the graph above. Outside this range, the spectral lines may exhibit a degree of optical aberration (such as coma), which will become more prominent at the steeper angles. These...

Step 2b - Choosing The Right Grating vs Resolution and Band-pass The Kymera 193i features a dual grating turret, designed to offer flexibility and control over your choice and interchange of gratings. The dual grating turret can be easily and speedily removed, and replaced by an alternative turret with new gratings. The intelligent design of the 193i means that only a simple offset adjustment is required once the new turret and gratings are added. The 193i is shipped with the grating turret already in place, ensuring your system is ready for use straight out of the box. Additional grating...

Step 2c - Selecting The Correct Grating Efficiency Option All graphs shown below represent efficiency for 45° polarisation Efficiency (%) ciency Efficiency (%) ciency Efficiency (%) ciency Efficiency (%) ciency Efficiency (%) ciency Important Consideration System throughput is dependent on the grating’s angle of operation and may decrease with higher grating operating angles. Need to have maximum collection efficiency in the NIR/SWIR? All gratings are also available with protected silver coating. Please contact your local representative for further information.
