Andor Imaging Spectrographs Kymera 328i

Intelligent and multi-modal spectroscopy platform for Physical and Life science

This highly modular spectrograph features patented Adaptive Focus, quadruple on-axis grating turret and TruRes™ technology, delivering superb spectral resolution performance. The unmatched configurability and highly intuitive user interface make it the perfect platform for a wide range of routine and more advanced spectroscopy experiments.

The intelligent, motorised Adaptive Focus of the Kymera allows automated access to the best optical performance for any grating, camera or wavelength range configuration. The TruResTM option delivers unmatched spectral resolution for a third-meter focal length spectrograph, with performance enhancements exceeding 30%, extracting the very best performance from the Kymera without the need for a grating change or post-processing spectra mathematical alterations. Greater definition of dense Raman or plasma optical signatures can be achieved without compromise on bandpass, from UV to SWIR, at the touch of a button.

328 mm focal length, F/4.1 aperture – Ideal combination for a wide range of applications ranging from luminescence/ photoluminescence spectroscopy to more demanding, higher resolution Raman spectroscopy or plasma studies

Adaptive Focus (patented) – Intelligent and user-friendly interface for uncompromised spectral resolution performance

TruRes™ – Intuitive, rapid and fully user-controlled option for greater than 30% true spectral resolution enhancement at the touch of a button. Enhance the discrimination power of your spectrograph without tedious grating or grating turret change.

Quad-grating turret with RFID technology – Seamless field-upgradability with precise indexing interface and user-friendly hatch access. Automatic gratings recognition with embedded RFID tags – minimum user interaction. Maximum resolution and band-pass flexibility at the touch of a button.

Astigmatism-corrected optical design – Toroidal optics enable multi-track fiber detection and excellent sample image relay from a microscope at the grating ‘0’ order

Robust on-axis wavelength drive – High accuracy direct-drive delivers superb single-grating and grating-to-grating center wavelength repeatability down to 4 and 10 pm respectively.

Dual detector outputs – Extended wavelength coverage when combining Andor UV-NIR CCD, EMCCD, ICCD and InGaAs cameras. Slit option for monochromator operation

Dual input ports – Greater setup flexibility for complex, multi-modal optical setups.

USB interface – Plug-and-play connectivity, ideal for laptop operation alongside Andor USB cameras.

Seamless connection to microscopes – Adjustable height feet and choice of direct, lens relay, or cage system-based interfaces. 15 mm wide-aperture input slit for extended sample image relay and spectral analysis through the same optical path.

Protected silver coated optics options – Most efficient for NIR/SWIR detection when used in conjunction with Andor InGaAs cameras

Pre-aligned, pre-calibrated instrument – Individually characterized spectrograph-detector systems for out-of-the box operation

High repetition rate shutter – 10 Hz continuous operation and 40 Hz burst mode for ultrafast acquisition

µ-Manager software integration – Simultaneous control of Andor cameras, spectrographs and a wide range of microscopes and accessories through 1 single software platform. Dedicated, user-friendly spectrum handling interface

Monochromator capabilities – Extract best optical resolution while allowing use of single point detectors with sensitivity up to 12 ?m (Labview SDK-based solution only)
