Agilent Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS)

The Agilent Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS) is designed for superior performance, flexibility and productivity. Comprising the Cary

7000 UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer and Universal Measurement Accessory (UMA), the Cary 7000 UMS will meet all your research and QA/QC needs for Thin Films & Coatings, Optics, Solar and Glass applications.

Key features include:

– Ability to move the detector and the sample, independently of each other, providing a true multi-modal measurement system capable of absolute reflectance, transmission and scattering without moving the sample.

– Superior stray light rejection with an unprecedented 10 Abs photometric range.

– Four detectors consisting of a high performance photomultiplier tube (PMT), proprietary PbS detector and a two-colored Si/InGaAs detector.

– “Direct View” two-colored Si/InGaAs detector that provides coverage in the UV-Vis and NIR range without using integrating spheres or light pipes that attenutate signal and can compromise data quality.

– Proprietary PbSmart technology detector that provides superior photometric linearity in the NIR up to 8 Abs.

– High resolution optical encoder technology that ensures the sample and detector never loses position during data collection – even if the system is bumped accidentally.

– Wire grid polarizers that provide superior throughput across the wavelength range, and a large acceptance angle to ensure a high degree of polarization accuracy.

– Plug-n-play installation and removal of the UMA – with no re-alignment required – enabling use of the Cary 7000 spectrophotometer with other accessories via its precision Lock Down mechanism for quick and reproducible accessory changeovers.
