The MSV-5000 Series UV-Visible/NIR Microspectrophotometers can be used for a broad range of applications including the measurement of transmittance/reflectance spectra, band gap, film thickness, evaluation of the optical characteristics of functional crystals, and color analysis of microscopic samples. The MSV-5000 series includes 3 different configurations for UV-Visible/NIR microscopy:

MSV-5500  200 – 900 nm (PMT)

MSV-5700  200 – 2,700 nm (PMT/ PbS)

MSV-5800  200 – 1,600 nm (PMT/InGaAs)

Scanning Dispersive Optical System

The optical system uses a precision double-beam scanning monochromator, it includes all of the features of a research-grade scanning UV-Visible/NIR spectrophotometer with selectable spectral bandwidth for variable spectral resolution as well as selectable circular apertures and an adjustable rectangular aperture for sample area discrimination for measurement through the microscope.


Objective Lenses

The automatic objective carousel can be used to select any of the available 10X, 16X, or 32X Cassegrain objectives. In combination with a standard optical zoom feature for enhanced video imaging of the sample using a high-resolution CMOS camera.

Wide Spectral Measurement Range

The microscope system includes wide-band cassegrain objectives for high throughput transmittance/reflectance measurements continuously from 200 to 2,700 nm (MSV-5700).

Polarization Measurement

Automated Glan-Taylor polarizers (standard) provide polarization measurements in combination with the optional automated polarization analyzer.

MSV autostage

Automatic XYZ Stage

The optional automated stage enhances the operation performance of the system, especially for mapping and multi-point measurements.
