SolidSpec - 3700i/3700i DUV UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer

SolidSpec-3700i and SolidSpec-3700i DUV UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometers

Shimadzu’s SolidSpec-3700i and SolidSpec-3700i DUV (Deep-UV) spectrophotometers are top-of-the-line systems offering high sensitivity, deep UV measurement and very large sample compartments. These spectrophotometers are capable of measuring from deep-UV to visible and up to 3,300nm in the near-IR region and respond to the optical, semiconductor and FPD (flat panel display) market needs. Other common applications include, but are not limited, to haze analysis, band gap analysis, photovoltaics, coatings, and optical component characterization.

The SolidSpec-3700i and SolidSpec-3700i DUV (Deep-UV) are equipped with a very large sample compartment to analyze large solid samples without having to cut them to fit in a conventional spectrophotometer. Measurable wavelength range spans from 185nm to 3,300nm in the SolidSpec-3700i and 165nm to 3,300nm in the Solid Spec-3700i DUV. The spectrophotometers come outfitted with integrating spheres but a DDU (Direct Detection Unit) can be installed to carry out direct transmittance measurements. With the available automatic X-Y stage, a large sample (maximum sample size: 700 mm×560 mm) can be measured with users being able to assign sampling points in the software. The spectrophotometers are suitable for all kinds of samples, especially large samples encountered in the materials science field that absorb or reflect in the deep-ultraviolet, ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared regions. Main researches and markets utilizing this instrument include materials characterization in electronics and optics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, life sciences, environmental, textiles and food.

Shimadzu’s LabSolutions UV-Vis control software is included with the instrument. Measurement modes include photometric, spectrum, quantitation, kinetics, time course and bio-methods. Advanced software add-ons for Film Thickness Measurement, Color Measurement, UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) Calculation and Daylight Transmission Measurement are also available.

With LabSolutions UV-Vis software, users can get the most out of the instrument in terms of data acquisition, analysis, data integrity and user administration. With the proper software compliance package, the SolidSpec-3700i and SolidSpec-3700i DUV UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometers and the software setup can provide total data integrity, user administration and audit trails to fully comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
