UV-Vis spectrometer

The Cary 6000i is a high performance UV-Visible-NIR spectrophotometer with excellent photometric performance in the 175-1800 nm range. It is a valuable tool for materials science research.

The sample compartment can be expanded to hold large accessories and integrating spheres for spectral and diffuse reflectance. It is used to measure the absorbance, reflectance, transmission and thickness of thin films.
