The system is user friendly and easy to setup – you will be ready to start measurements right away. Everything is included for samples measurement: spectrometer/ light source (main unit), fiber optics probe, sample stage, software, calibration/reference sample.
Our extensive materials library has 500+ materials. New materials can be easily imported or created/added to the library. Support for a wide range of parameterized materials (from Cauchy to Tauc-Lorentz, etc.) is included.
One-click measurement combines data acquisition and data analysis. Everybody is a measurement expert with MProbe!
For advanced users, we have all the sophisticated tools including sensitivity analysis, error-estimator, simulation, filmstack switching, global optimization, layers and materials linking, etc. that can be used for advanced applications development
Reflectance and transmittance spectral data can also be used as a raw measurement (for example, as in spectrophotometer) or a for a wide range of other applications e.g. chemical concentration (we have a range of flow cells), filters and coating testing, etc.
