The spectroscopic measurement needs of the Gemology industry are demanding for a series of reasons. Chief among these can be low signal levels and the need for rapid measurement systems to handle the volume of gemstones measured. Avantes has developed basic measurement tools as well as advanced systems for to meet various gemological requirements.  Measurements can be accomplished with fairly simple reflection systems using either integrating spheres or fiber optic probes all the way to photoluminescence systems requiring lasers and TE cooled spectrometers.

The AvaSpec-ULS3648-USB2 spectrometer is an ideal candidate for gemology measurements due to the wide range of integration times is supports as well as high resolution capabilities.  For photoluminescence or Raman measurements, the AvaSpec-ULS2048L-TEC has proven to be quite effective in many gemology settings.  These combined with our reflection probes and AvaSphere integrating spheres combine to create workable solutions for gemology scientists.
