The StellarNet BLUE-Wave miniature spectrometers are fiber optically coupled instruments with a wide selection of models for measurements in 200-1150nm wavelength ranges.
Various models provide a choice of grating range and slit resolutions. New and improved electronics with a high speed 16-bit digitizer allows for fast data acquisition and a signal to noise of 1000:1!
Ruggedized– The detachable spectrograph assembly and control electronics are protected inside a rugged metal enclosure, suitable for portable, process, lab, and field applications.
Multi-unit connection (up to 8) can be daisy chained together and are able to run simultaneously.
USB Powered – BLUE-Wave miniature spectrometers can be powered directly from your PC USB-2 port. A single strand fiber optic cable or probe assembly delivers input via standard SMA 905 fiber optic connector with a choice of cable lengths. The spectrograph optics are exceptionally robust in a vibration tolerant modular design, with no moving parts.
Onboard Memory with pre-set calibrations and spectrometer settings and snap shot memory to provide instantaneous spectral image from the highly sensitive CCD with 2048.
High Speed Electronic Interface can be attached directly to a computers USB port for high speed data transfer. Options for Wifi/ethernet communication available as well as other interfaces. ContactUs@StellarNet.us for more info.

BLUE-Wave Sample Spectra
The powerful SpectraWiz® spectrometer software is provided free of charge with every spectrometer instrument. This includes drivers and customizable software for Windows. The SpectraWiz software is considered the “Swiss Army Knife of Spectroscopy” and may be used to accurately measure wavelength emissions, reflectance, transmission, absorption, concentrations, and absolute intensities. In addition to real-time spectroscopy, SpectraWiz® has built-in applications for SpectroRadiometry, SpectroColorimetry, ChemWiz chemistry lab concentration analyzer, and UV level monitors.
Detector Collection Lens
Above is a detector collection lens (DLENS) which can be added to the detector window in any BLUE-Wave model spectrometer. When used with larger diameter fibers (600um and 1000um) the DLENS can increase the light collecting efficiency by up to 3 times! This detector upgrade is great for low light application such as fluorescence, reflectance, or any application where increased light collection and data acquisition speed are important.
DLENS upgrade =$150
JACK 1-In Trigger
TTL input trigger to enable spectrometer scan $175
UV detector upgrade (UDET) =$158 , UVN detector upgrade=$500
Units may be daisy chained via USB-2 hub allowing simple configurations for dual and multi-beam process applications. 8 BLUE-Wave spectrometers can be operated at once!
Enables PCs with WiFi to run all StellarNet spectrometers attached to the kit, which may optionally be battery powered. SCD converts USB to Ethernet that feeds high speed WiFi wireless router (not included). Works on WinXP, Win 7-32bit and Win7-64bit.
StellarNet Webserver Package
Wifi device with pre-installed StellarNet Webserver and demo LabVIEW source codes for remote computer. Includes installation support.
BLUE-Wave spectrometers can be configured for a complete spectrum of applications such as SpectroRadiometry (measurements of LEDs, solar, lasers, displays, plasma, etc.), SpectroChemistry (absorbance, reflectance, & low light fluorescence), Optical Metrology, Raman, and much more!
