The first of its kind: 4096 pixel Mini

One of the most highly anticipated product releases of 2018 was this first-to-the-market 4096 pixel CMOS array miniature spectrometer, the AvaSpec-Mini4096CL.



AvaSpec-Mini(CL): CMOS Inside

Avantes is excited to release the next generation of AvaSpec-Mini spectrometers with CMOS detectors and advanced electronics and communications. Like the original AvaSpec-Mini, the CL series is only the size of a deck of cards, though with excellent temperature and wavelength stability. This instrument is easy to take anywhere you like, and is very well suited for handheld applications.
