Avantes offers a variety of rugged, field portable accessories to facilitate your measurements on biological or non-biological samples.  These can facilitate reflection, transmission or irradiance measurements in the field.

Cosine Correctors

90 Degree Cosine Corrector (COL-90-UV/VIS-CC-CRADLE) – For outside solar irradiance measurements there is nothing like the COL-90-UV/VIS-CC-CRADLE which facilitates laying the cosine corrector on a table or surface with a fiber connected to an irradiance calibrated spectrometer as the spectroradiometer.

Fiber Holders

Angled Fiber Holder (AFH-15) and Reflection Probe Holder (RPH-1) – The AFH-15 facilitates reflection measurements using small tipped fiber optic probes or metal ferrule tipped fiber optics at various angles in 15-degree intervals.  The RPH-1 is designed for reflection measurements normal to (180 degrees) or at 45 degrees from your sample with any of Avantes standard reflection probes.

Small tipped reflection probes (FCR-7UVIR200-2-1.5x100) are ideal for measuring small samples such as insects or features on avian plumage or eggs.  This probe is available in a special configuration (FCR-7UVIR100-2-1x25) for use with the AFH-Ocular which is probe holder with an optic for viewing the exact measurement spot on a sample. 


The AvaTripod is another great accessory to facilitate irradiance measurements or remote sensing.  The fully adjustable legs and swivel top allow for many configurations of measurements.
