Princeton Instruments’ IsoPlane Spectrograph Wins R&D 100 Award as One of 2013’s Top 100 Technologies
Date:7/11/2013

Trenton, NJ (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

Princeton Instruments is very pleased to announce the company’s IsoPlane SCT-320 spectrograph has been named as a recipient of the prestigious R&D 100 Award for 2013. Award entries are judged by experts chosen from professional consultants, university faculty, and industrial researchers with expertise and experience in the areas they are judging. Based on the judges’ votes and written comments, the editors of R&D Magazine determine the top 100 technologies of 2013. The R&D 100 Awards, known as the “Oscar of Innovation,” will be presented at a ceremony in Orlando, Florida on November 7th, 2013.

The IsoPlane® (patent pending) spectrograph features a revolutionary new optical design that eliminates field astigmatism and greatly reduces the spherical aberration and coma inherent in the design of the Czerny-Turner spectrograph. It produces images that are clearer and sharper across the focal plane than any comparable spectrograph on the market. As a result, more photons hit fewer pixels, significantly increasing the effective signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of spectra. Thanks to its superior imaging ability, the IsoPlane eliminates cross talk in multi-channel spectroscopy and allows multiple fibers to be spatially and spectrally resolved.

Together with Princeton Instruments’ industry-leading CCD, EMCCD, ICCD, and InGaAs cameras, as well as highly reflective mirror coatings from Acton Optics, the IsoPlane offers the best available performance in optical spectroscopy.

“In less than one year since introduction, the Princeton Instruments IsoPlane aberration corrected imaging spectrograph has achieved remarkable sales success. Together with PI’s 64-bit LightField software and our renowned cameras, IsoPlane is uniquely ready for the most demanding spectroscopy applications. It does with ease what common Czerny-Turner spectrographs cannot do,” comments William Asher, president of Princeton Instruments. “We are gratified by the receipt of the prestigious R&D 100 award for IsoPlane. With the receipt of the Photonics Media Prism award in January and an honorable mention CLEO Innovation Award in June of this year, IsoPlane is set to become the gold standard of spectroscopy instrumentation.”

Applications for the IsoPlane spectrograph include Raman, fluorescence, photoluminescence, multi-channel spectroscopy, micro-spectroscopy, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), Fourier-domain spectroscopy, and biomedical spectroscopy. Researchers across life and physical sciences can use IsoPlane to design experiments that are hitherto not possible.
