Mini-spectrometer
TG series
C11482GA
For near IR, integrating optical system,
image sensor and circuit
Hamamatsu TG series mini-spectrometer C11482GA is a polychromator integrated with optical elements and an image sensor.
Light to be measured is guided into the entrance port of the C11482GA through an optical fiber and the spectrum measured
with the built-in image sensor is output from the USB port to a PC for data acquisition. The C11482GA is a palmtop-size unit
and operates on USB bus power. It comes supplied with evaluation software that allows setting measurement conditions,
acquiring and saving data, and displaying graphs. Original measurement software can be designed on an end-user’s side as
DLL’s function specification is disclosed.

may occur on the product surface. Dew condensation on the product may cause deterioration in characteristics and reliability.
Note: Exceeding the absolute maximum ratings even momentarily may cause a drop in product quality. Always be sure to use the
product within the absolute maximum ratings.

A/D output is the output with dark output is subtracted when light is input. The difference between
the ideal value and typical example contains a
measurement error. The smaller the A/D output,
the larger the measurement error.

Connection example (transmission light measurement)
Light to be measured is guided into the entrance port of TG series through an optical fiber and the spectrum measured with the built-in
image sensor is output through the USB port to a PC for data acquisition. There are no moving parts inside the unit so stable measurements are obtained at all times. An optical fiber that guides light input from external sources allows a flexible measurement setup.

Measurement example
Film thickness measurement (white light interferometry)
Thickness of 10 μm thick food wrapping film (polyvinylidene
chloride) was measured.
40000
Note:
Principle of film thickness measurement:
In film thickness measurement utilizing white light interferometry,
an interference spectrum resulting from internal reflections
between the front and back surfaces of a film is obtained.
The film thickness can then be determined by calculation from
the spectral peak count, wavelength range, refractive index of
film and incident light angle.
