StellarNet has released a new high performance spectrometer named the SILVER-Nova. It has a ruggedized metal enclosure with a fiber optic input for demanding applications in the 190-1110nm wavelength range that require high resolution and optimal sensitivity over a wide spectral range .
The SILVER-Nova is the most well rounded spectrometer choice allowing research grade results for numerous spectroscopic applications. The spectrograph employs composite grating technology to deliver high efficiency in both the UV & NIR spectral extremes. The UV enhanced CCD detector with integrated TE cooler, gain enhancements, and optical lens assemblies allow for unparalleled sensitivity, with over 65% increased signal to noise at long exposures. Advancements in SILVER-Nova optical design deliver 1nm resolution with a 25um slit. Additionally, the metal enclosure is ruggedized and compact to allow for portable, process, or laboratory environments.
The portable spectrometer is packaged in a small ruggedmetal enclosure for use with single strand fiber optic input cable. The electronics interface can be attached directly to a computers high speed USB-2. The units are vibration tolerant and are exceptionally robust with no internal adjustments or moving parts.

Composite Grating Technology to deliver high efficiency in both the UV & NIR spectral extremes.
Superior Detector Sensitivity – The UV enhanced CCD detector with integrated TE cooler, gain enhancements, and optical lens assemblies allow for unparalleled sensitivity, with over 65% decreased noise at long exposures.
High Resolution – Advancements in SILVER-Nova optical design deliver 1nm resolution with a 25um slit. Additionally, the metal enclosure is ruggedized and compact to allow for portable, process, or laboratory environments.
Included TEC and TEC-X2 Upgrade Capability – Optical housing includes sealed and isolated detector enclosure with specialized heat sink and air flow design for added stability and cool operation. Thermoelectric detector cooling improves the stability of the detector for lengthy measurements where thermal noise can distort and override signal. Standard SILVER-Nova includes 1-stage TEC for -15 degrees and options for upgrade to the 2-stage TEC-X2 for -30 degrees below ambient; this increases instrument S/N drastically by reducing noise over 80% at long exposures.
Ruggedized – The detachable spectrograph assembly and control electronics are protected inside a rugged metal enclosure, suitable for portable, process, lab, and field applications.
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.
