Description: MSP – Microspectrophotometer
Location: Chapman Hall - 313

The microspectrophotometer is an instrument used to measure the transmittance, absorbance, reflectance, polarization, fluorescence and luminescence spectra of microscopic samples in the ultraviolet, visible and infrared wavelength, UV-VIS-NIR, range. It is also capable of non-destructive and non-contact colorimetry and thin film thickness measurement. Raman capability is accomplished with the included laser light source.


- Craic 20/30 PV microspectrophotometer is based on a Zeiss photo microscope using Lambda and LambdaFire software.
- UV-VIS-NIR spectral range from 300-2100 nm
- Included light sources: Xenon, Mercury vapor, Halogen and 532 nm laser
- Magnification: Zeiss 10x, 20x, 50x and 100x dry lenses, N.A. 0.4-1.4
- Fluorescent filter cubes: Zeiss 260, 420, 560, 920 nm
- Stage: Prior motorized stage
