Innovative UV-sensitive mini-spectrometer

Nov 24 2023

Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a UV-sensitive model in the ‘mini-spectrometer micro series’ that offers high sensitivity, fingertip size and low cost. These features help slash the size of environmental measuring instruments, such as those needed for water quality monitoring and analysis. The C16767MA was designed and developed by leveraging the company’s unique micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) technology and advanced opto-semiconductor manufacturing technology.

The C16767MA separates UV light in the range of 190 to 440 nm or nanometers (one billionth of a meter) into multiple wavelengths and then simultaneously measures the light intensity at each wavelength. As just one application, for example, the C16767MA can be mounted in compact water quality monitors. Installing these monitors in rivers, lakes or oceans allows inspecting and analysing the content of multiple types of pollutants in water via absorption spectrophotometry. The C16767MA also assists in designing and manufacturing inexpensive water quality monitors that are easily installable in large numbers at many testing sites to monitor water quality, thus improving the accuracy of water quality assessment over broad-ranging areas. By expanding sales of the C16767MA, Hamamatsu Photonics will contribute to ensuring safer water and address climate change.

Sales of the C16767MA started on Wednesday 15 November 2023 for domestic and overseas manufacturers of environmental measurement instruments. The C16767MA was on display at ‘PHOTON FAIR 2023’, the all-inclusive Hamamatsu Photonics exhibition demonstrating the company’s advanced technologies and products along with the tremendous possibilities of light.
