The McPherson STS critically analyzes and tests spectral and spatial performance in a dependable and convenient manner. New broadband, multi-spectral, and hyperspectral sensors and imagers are widely deployed. Commercial, military and research sectors have special infrared or ultraviolet response requirements. With the STS you can test and characterize optical seekers, spectral signatures, integrated imagers and bare sensors. You can conduct absolute measurements of transmission, reflection, stray light sensitivity and head on response or vs. incidence angles.
McPherson’s STS instrument uses a single optical path, simply providing continuity for measurements from the ultraviolet, through the visible and into the mid and long wave infrared. The STS uses reflective optics for efficient operation throughout the wide spectral measuring range. Additional benefits include variable bandwidth, easy to change diffraction grating, light source, and detector turrets. Linearity and SN measurements are simplified by the STS’s ability to easily change bandwidth.
The McPherson STS can also be customized to meet your needs. For example, systems providing high spectral-purity or with large format receivers and senders up to 300mm clear aperture or more. Call or email now to uncover how the McPherson STS guaranteed results provide compelling, clear-cut, and convenient answer to your spectral test requirements. McPherson’s application specialists are available to help.
McPherson (Chelmsford, MA USA) has more than fifty years experience manufacturing optical instruments and systems, for customers at university and research laboratories worldwide.
