Integrating spheres for the V-700 UV-Vis/NIR spectrophotometers

Integrating spheres are designed to measure either the diffuse transmittance or diffuse reflectance spectra of a liquid, solid or powder sample.

ISV-922/ISN-923/ISN-901i/ILV-924/ILN-925/ILN-902i/PIV-756/PIN-757/PIN-903i/IJV-726/IJN-727/IJN-904i/HISV-728/HISN-729 integrating sphere accessories

For standard measurements, UV-Vis or UV-Vis/NIR spectrophotometers measure the transmittance of a homogeneous, transparent liquid or solid sample. However, when a suspended liquid sample or opaque solid or powder sample is measured, the light incident upon the sample is diffusely transmitted or reflected and only a small portion of the scattered light reaches the detector, resulting in an inaccurate measurement. The integrating sphere accessory acquires most of the light diffusely transmitted or diffusely reflected from the sample into the integrating sphere and introduces it to the detector(s), providing a more representative measurement of the diffuse sample. JASCO integrating spheres have been designed for a variety of application and sampling requirements.

ISV-922 60 mm Integrating sphere for V-750/760
ISN-923 60 mm Integrating sphere for V-770
ISN-901i 60 mm Integrating sphere for V-780

The Model ISV-922/ISN-923/ISN-901i accessories are 60 mm integrating spheres with a smaller footprint to fit directly into the V-700 instrument sample compartment. These integrating spheres have a smaller sphere area, resulting in an increased signal-to-noise ratio for sample measurements at smaller bandwidth settings. All integrating spheres include a Spectralon reference tile, used for baseline correction of the integrating sphere. In addition, a specular reflectance exclusion sample holder is included as standard as well as a modified sample holder which will include the specular reflectance data with the collected spectrum. The 60 mm spheres have been designed with several different configurations to provide simple sampling methods for powders, solids and other scattering samples.

 

FCH-002 Fluorescence cut-off filter

A fluorescence cut-off filter permits accurate measurement of the transmittance/reflectance of a sample that also emits fluorescence (commonly, the 450 nm to 650 nm range with excitation near 300 nm). The optional filter is installed inside the sphere, before the internal sphere PMT detector. (Must be ordered with the integrating sphere, installed during manufacture.)

PSH-001 Powder Sample Holder

This optional accessory is used to measure the reflectance of a powdered sample.

Model RLH-603 Reference-Side Rectangular Cell Holder

This optional cell holder is used to install a rectangular cell on the reference side of the integrating sphere
(used as a reference for diffuse transmittance samples).

ILV-924 150 mm Integrating sphere for V-750/760
ILN-925 150 mm Integrating sphere for V-770
ILN-902i 150 mm Integrating sphere for V-780

The Model ILV-924/ILN-925/ILN-902i accessories are 150 mm integrating spheres with a larger sampling area and fixtures for larger samples, with features for diffuse transmittance and diffuse reflectance measurements. The 150 mm spheres include an integrated light trap for exclusion of specular reflectance components from the sample. Spectralon reference tiles are included for baseline correction of the spectral data collected using the sphere. The larger sphere diameter corresponds to many international standards that require the larger sphere area, as compared to the 60 mm integrating spheres. Although the 150 mm sphere may have slightly lower signal-to-noise performance, the larger area vs. the ‘cutouts’ for the source entrances and sample area ports provides a greater integration capability for sample reflectance experiments.

Absolute reflectance measurement for V-700 Series UV-visible and Near infrared NIR spectrophotometers

The absolute reflectance measurement system for the V-700 series UV-visible-NIR spectrophotometers is used to perform the measurement of the spectral properties, film thickness, angle variation or other characteristics of solid samples such as semiconductors, thin films and various optical elements.

ARV-913/ARN-914/ARN-915i/ARSV-916/ARSN-917/ARSN-918i/ARMV-919/ARMN-920/ARMN-921i

The absolute reflectance measurement accessories are designed to measure the absolute reflectance of a specular reflecting sample (metals or other materials) while varying the incidence angle (all models). The ARSV-916, ARSN-917, ARSN-918i, ARMV-919, ARMN-920 and ARMN-921i accessories also permit the transmittance measurement of a sample (without diffuse transmittance), while varying the incidence angle. Absolute reflectance and transmittance are measured by rotating the sample stage to determine the angle of the light incident to the sample and setting the detector in the path of the reflected light or the transmitted light through the sample.

Diffuse reflectance measurements can be obtained by mounting the sample at the rear of the integrating sphere with an incidence angle of 0º. Diffuse transmittance measurements can also be obtained by mounting the sample at the entrance of the integrating sphere with the sample holder at an incidence angle of 0º.

Effect of polarization when measuring absolute reflectance

Light from a spectrophotometer that employs a grating is always polarized. The ratio of the intensities of the S and P polarized light varies according to the wavelength and also differs from one grating to another for the same wavelength. The greater the angle of incidence of the beam on the sample, the greater the difference in the intensity of the S and P polarized reflected light making measurement inaccurate if the absolute reflectance is measured at a high angle of incidence. In this case, a polarizer can be set to 45 degrees so that the incident light can be considered non-polarized.

Range of Absolute Reflectance Measurement Accessories

Manual Measurement

ARV-913 Synchronous Absolute reflectance measurement accessory (UV-Vis). For use with V-750 and V-760

ARN-914 Synchronous Absolute reflectance measurement accessory (UV-Vis/NIR). For use with V-770 only

ARN-915i Synchronous Absolute reflectance measurement accessory (UV-Vis/NIR). For use with V-780 only

 

Reflectance measurement only
The incidence and collection angles are maintained with the same ‘synchronous’ angle by simultaneously rotating the sample stage and integrating sphere.

 

The ARV-913, ARN-914 and ARN-715i measure the absolute reflectance of a specular reflecting sample (metals, etc.) or the relative reflectance of a diffusely reflecting sample. It also permits the measurement of transmittance by using an optional solid sample holder for transmittance measurements. This attachment includes an integrating sphere with integrated detector(s). The angle of incidence of the sample is changed by moving the integrating sphere (in the measurement of absolute reflectance). The movable angular range of the integrating sphere is 5°to 90°(angle of incidence). The relative reflectance is measured by mounting the sample on the rear of the integrating sphere.

ARSN-917 Asynchronous Absolute reflectance measurement accessory (UV-Vis/NIR) For use with V-770

ARSN-918i Asynchronous Absolute reflectance measurement accessory (UV-Vis/NIR) For use with V-780

Reflectance and transmittance measurement
The incidence and collection angles can be set independently in an asynchronous mode.

 

The ARSV-916, ARSN-917 and ARSN-918i manual absolute reflectance measurement accessories measure the absolute reflectance of a reflective sample or transmittance of a clear sample that does not diffuse light. The detector(s) is(are) equipped with an integrating sphere and also permits measurement of the relative reflectance and transmittance of samples that diffuse light (the sample holder for measurement of relative reflectance is standard, the sample holder for transmittance measurement is optional). Absolute reflectance and transmittance are measured by rotating the sample stage to determine the angle of the light incident upon the sample and setting the detector in the path of the reflected or transmitted light. The relative reflectance is measured with light normally incident to the sample, which is set behind the integrating sphere.

ARMN-921i Automated absolute reflectance measurement accessory (UV/VIS/NIR) For use with V-780

Reflectance and transmittance measurement
The incidence and collection angles can be set independently in asynchronous mode.

 

The ARMV-919, ARMN-920 and ARMN-921i absolute reflectance measurement systems automate the measurement of spectral properties, including film thickness, angle variation or other characteristics of solid samples such as semiconductors, thin films and various optical elements. The incidence and collection angles can be set in a synchronous mode, simultaneously rotating the sample stage and integrating sphere. Alternatively, the incidence and collection angles can be set independently in asynchronous mode. The polarization properties of a sample can also be examined using P or S polarization or by setting the desired polarization angles.

ARG-476/GPH-506 Polarizers

The light from a grating type spectrophotometer is always polarized. The ratio of the intensities of the S and P polarized light varies according to the wavelength and also differs from one grating to another for the same wavelength. The greater the angle of incidence of the beam on the sample, the greater the difference in the intensity of the S and P polarized reflected light, making measurements inaccurate if the absolute reflectance is measured at a high angle of incidence. In this case, a polarizer is required to accurately measure the absolute reflectance when the angle of incidence is 30° or greater.

Wavelength range:

250-750 nm(Model ARV-913)

Precise analysis of micro-volume samples for biological samples

The SAH-769 One Drop is a dedicated accessory for the V-600 and V-700 Series UV-visible spectrophotometers for the measurement of micro-volume samples of protein and nucleic acid. A precise optical pathlength is maintained, assuring excellent measurement reproducibility. The sampling procedure is very quick (around 20 seconds per sample) and easy, by simply placing a droplet of a sample on the disk cell window. The minimum sample volume is 5 µl for the standard 1 mm pathlength disk cell, and 0.6 µL for the optional 0.2 mm pathlength cell. The shorter optical pathlength allows measurements of high concentration samples without dilution.

 

Rapid, but highly accurate measurement using a flexible V-700 spectrophotometer. Only 20 seconds per sample.
