Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced a new MEMS spectrometer, the C12880MA, an ultra-compact, fingertip size spectrometer head offering wider spectral response and high sensitivity. It has a spectral range of 340–850 nm and a sensitivity two orders or magnitude higher than the original C12666MA micro-spectrometer. The C12880MA also offers 12 nm resolution, a high speed video rate of 5 MHz and incorporates a trigger function and a CMOS sensor with 288 pixels (14 × 200 µm pixel size). The spectrometer measures 20.1 × 12.5 × 10.1 mm in size, making it ideal for portable measurement devices (including compatibility with smartphones and tablets) in applications such as colour monitoring, LED testing, water quality monitoring and other environmental measurement instruments.
