Cary 5000 UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer

The Cary 5000 is a high performance UV/Vis/NIR optical spectrophotometer, capable of measuring spectra in the range of 175-3300nm.  Spectra can be acquired in transmission, diffuse reflectance and total reflectance.  The system can accommodate a wide range of sample types including liquids, suspensions, solids and films.  Sample sizes can vary from 140mm to as small as 1mm.  Acquisition areas range from 10mm diameter to 1mm diameter.  Some common applications are: film and antireflective coating analysis; color measurement and color matching; and optical density measurement analysis.  Instrument specs are below:

  • Detectors: Scintillating from 175nm-800nm; PbS from 800nm-3300nm
  • Optics: Schwarzschild coupling
  • Sources: Standard tungsten quartz: 350nm-3300nm; deuterium: 350nm-175nm
  • Energy discrimination: Double littrow monochromator
  • Range of spectral band width: UV: 0.04nm-20nm; NIR: 0.01nm-5nm
