Looking for a very small spectrometer with a resolution of up to 0.1 nm? Then the new generation AvaSpec-Mini is an ideal choice. It’s only the size of a deck of cards, yet delivers stray-light levels lower than 0.17% and weighs only 174 grams. Easy to take anywhere you like.The AvaSpec-Mini finds its way into many areas of research, such as light analysis, chemical research and Raman spectroscopy. Or use it as a tiny OEM-spectrometer in your application. The possibilities are endless.

Of course, the AvaSpec-Mini works seamlessly with Avantes spectroscopy software.

AvaSpec-Mini(CL): CMOS Inside
Right now we are developing the new generation Avaspec-Mini spectrometers with the CMOS detector with 4096 pixels enabling the optimal resolution. Only the size of a deck of cards, though excellent temperature and wavelength stability!
Easy to take anywhere you like, very well suited for hand held applications. Visit booth A2.101 at the LASER show in Munich and check this out or send us an email to keep you informed! Here is the preview of some preliminary data of this amazing new instrument
