Optometrics offers a range of monochromator accessories to go with their line of best selling Mini-Chrom Monochromators.

Interchangeable Slit Sets

Monochromator Slit SetsA 300 micron pair of slits are included with each Mini-Chrom. Additional slit sets can be purchased to optimize resolution or throughput. Slits are available in 50, 100, 150, 300, 600 and 1000 micron widths, all 4 mm in height.

Changing the slit assemblies in any Mini-Chrom takes only a few seconds and no tools. The slit assembly consists of a precision slit photo etched in a black oxide coated brass disc, a slit spacer, slit cover and two banana plugs. The banana plugs allow the assembly to be easily inserted or removed while assuring alignment of the slit with the monochromator.

Note: Slits should always be changed in pairs.

Aperture Adapters

The Aperture Adapter converts the entrance and/or exit slit ports to accept SMA 905 compatible optical fiber assemblies.
