We made the collimator and camera lens reflector on a single spherical substrate, making the mechanical assemblies simpler.
Z-shaped design makes the spectrometer quite compact — 8.5x8x15 cm, allowing one to place it more conveniently inside a system filled with equipment. For the same purpose, we made an "outer" and "inner" housing: if it is necessary to fix the device inside another housing, there is no need for rigid protection — and it is possible to remove the outer housing, making the device even a centimeter smaller.
We use CCD and CMOS as photodetectors in the TroSpec EF series spectrometers. In order to install photodetectors from different manufacturers into the spectrometers, we developed several interface boards.
