AvaSpec-StarLine: flexible and inexpensive

All spectrometers of the AvaSpec-StarLine family offer highest flexibility in configuration at excellent price/performance ratio. Choose between different detectors, gratings and entrance slits and configure a spectrometer that is optimally suited for your application. For even higher flexibility have a replaceable slit (Option –RS)  installed.

For most detector types Avantes  offers a preconfigured version at a particularly favorable price and short delivery time.

For multi-channel applications there are desktop units with up to 4 channels and rackmount versions for up to 10 channels available.

The spectrometers of the AvaSpec -StarLine family are ideally suited for use in a wide range of applications, such as

  • Reflection and transmission measurement of optics and coatings
  • Color measurement
  • Measurement of absolute-calibrated spectral irradiance or relative light intensity
  • Optical emission spectroscopy
  • High-speed measurements for process control
  • LIBS
  • Characterization of lasers and pulse sources
  • Absorbance chemistry
