Wireless Spectrometer



Wireless spectroscopy at an affordable price.

The PASCO spectrometer is specifically designed for introductory spectroscopy experiments. The Bluetooth and USB connectivity enable use with tablets and computers. With this one apparatus, you can measure intensity, absorbance, transmittance and fluorescence, making this a powerful and intuitive tool for your spectroscopy needs.

PASCO's FREE spectroscopy software walks you through the process of calibration, performing a full spectrum scan, determining the optimum wavelength for study, and concentration and kinetics experiments.

And the software is available for PC®, Mac® and tablets (both Android™ and iPad®) makes the PASCO Spectrometer easy to use in any technology setting.

How It Works

Absorbance and Transmittance:
Light from the LED-boosted tungsten light source passes through the solution and a high quality diffration grating. The CCD array detects the light for collection and analysis

Typical Applications

  • Measure absorbance, transmittance and fluorescence
  • Measure intensity with the optional Fiber Optics Cable
  • Full spectrum analysis of colored solutions and plant pigments
  • Determine the concentration of solutions by applying Beer's law
  • Perform kinetics experiments of Absorbance and Absorbance vs Time
  • Conduct enzyme-catalyzed kinetics experiments
  • Conduct equilibrium experiments
  • Measure the emission spectra of gas discharge tubes and light sources. Requires the optional Fiber Optics Cable (PS-2601)
