Resolution is one of the key specifications discussed in a spectrometer purchase decision. This being said, resolution specifications are often overstated by manufacturers, as the proper means of measuring resolution is not well understood by many customers. Furthermore, maximizing resolution is often not recommended for specific applications and can actually impede performance. The purpose of this technical note is to clarify resolution, how it is measured and which elements you should check when evaluating the resolution of a spectrometer for your application.

If you need any help in finding the most suitable measurement setup, feel free to contact us at any time. We are happy to help!
