Solution Description & Supported Functionality

The Transmission Module EVM consists of an infrared optical sources, an interrogation chamber for inserting materials under investigation, and an optical train for collecting and delivering optical power to the input aperture of the NIRscan Nano spectrometer. Electrical connections provide power for the optical sources and control of timing for illumination of the material under investigation. Light from the on-board source passes through the sample, after which a telecentric optical system collects and conditions the light for efficient coupling to the spectrometer. The module operates primarily over the 900 – 1700 nm range and provides a 12,000:l signal to noise ratio (SNR). This SNR exceeds that of any other module, transmission or reflection, available for the NIRscan Nano. The module achieves this high SNR using custom designed electronic and optical components, and efficient driving of the illumination source.

  • • Simple installation of the module requires no special tools or alignment procedures. The module uses the same control and power connections as the standard reflectance module. • Custom design of the transmission module’s collecting optics and efficient driving of the illumination source maximizes optical throughput and minimizes stray light at the entrance to the Nano, greatly improving SNR and allowing measurement of weaker phenomena. • Provides the ability to perform transmission based spectrometric measurements, enhancing the range of applications for which the NIRscan Nano can be used.

Trade-off Analysis The transmission module provides higher SNR compared to the standard reflectance module. The main trade-off is the need to deliver the material under interrogation to the sample chamber – the module cannot be immersed in a material or simply placed up against a material, the latter of which is possible with the standard reflectance module.
Development Tools No special development tools are required to operate the module, as it interfaces seamlessly with the existing control signaling and circuitry on the NIRscan Nano.
