skylab spectra optical solutions

We take the lead in spectroscopy, imaging and the development of new scientific instrumentation.

Light as a tool

The electromagnetic spectrum is one of the most useful tools we have in understanding the cosmos.
  For many years, spectroscopists have use electromagnetic radiation to understand different aspects of our universe.  This ranges from studying the molecules present in galactic clusters to the plasmon effects in nanocrystalline materials. 
Spectra Optical Solutions designs and develops instrumentation using the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Our expertise is used to develop instruments for imaging of microscopic samples in the NIR, visible and UV regions.  We also develop instruments to study the spectroscopy of samples by a number of different methods including absorbance, reflectance, fluorescence, polarization and even Raman spectroscopy.  We have even managed to combine these two fields of expertise to create tools to measure the spectra of microscopic samples.

did you know?

The term "light" describes the region of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the naked eye.  The spectral range is generally from 400 to 700 nanometers though, of course, some people can see further into the blue or red regions.  The term light is defined by the Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE).  

Our Technologies

Microscopy is the ability to visualize microscopic samples at a reasonable scale.  As such, an understanding of optical microscopy is needed by our customers to meet their needs.
An understanding of spectrososcopy is vital in order to create tools to best meet our customer's requirements.
To bring spectroscopy and microscopy together, it is necessary to understand optics in order to get the best results.
