Core design

The INSION microspectrometer.

The INSION micro spectrometer (MSM) is based on an Echellette diffraction grating in the Rowland configuration, produced in micro injection molding technology. All functional optical elements – entrance slit, reflective grating, deflecting mirror and light traps – are integrated in a single part. Thus the MSM is extremely robust against harsh environments like mechanical shock, vibration, acceleration, temperature and humidity. Depending on the application and the specific wavelength range, the INSION MSM can be equipped with low noise CMOS, sensitive CCD or a temperature controlled InGaAs detector array. The INSION MSM`s are working in the wavelength range between 200 nm and 2000 nm. They are available as fiber-connected OEM micro spectrometer modules or as OEM systems, including an electronics platform for control and data processing. Customer specific products also include the entire optical signal path of an application.

Design Principle

Performance defining elements – integrated on a single chip.

INSION focuses on micro spectrometers and spectral sensors which integrate all optical elements on a single micro-molded chip. We develop and produce spectral sensors which are tailored to specific application requests. Our products include the light source, the optical sampling system and the micro spectrometer as detection system. Optionally, the sensor can be equipped with an OEM electronics platform for system control and data processing. All components combine outstanding technical properties with regard to quality, application, handling and system integration.
