Educational Spectrophotometer System

OS-8539   - 

Teaches students basic optical principles and allows quantitative measurements that rival those of more expensive units.

Overview

PASCO's Educational Spectrophotometer teaches basic optical principles and allows quantitative measurements rivaling those of more expensive units.

When the Spectrophotometer is used with PASCO Capstone, students can explore the relationship between angle, wavelength and intensity and graph the spectral lines from discharge tubes. Lines from mercury, sodium, helium, neon, krypton and argon can be plotted— even the lines of the Balmer series in hydrogen can be detected.

Students can also analyze the transmission characteristics of filters, chemical solutions and even the absorption spectrum of a leaf. Few instruments can be used to teach so many aspects of science.

Buy the complete system as a standalone including the Educational Spectrophotometer Accessory Kit, Optics Bench, Aperture Bracket and ScienceWorkshop sensors.  Or use an existing Optics Bench and sensors and just buy theEducational Spectrophotometer Accessory Kit.

Note: The open design of this spectrophotometer system is ideal for education. It is not intended for industrial or research applications.

Special Features

  • Collimating Slits -- Set of 5 slits ranging from 0.1-1.5 mm.
  • Collimating Lens -- 100 mm focal length, 50 mm dia. coated lens.
  • Diffraction Grating -- High-quality, 600 lines/mm grating strongly blazed in the first order.
  • Focusing Lens -- 100 mm focal length, 50 mm dia. coated lens.

PASPORT or ScienceWorkshop?

PASPORT sensors connect directly to all current PASCO interfaces.

ScienceWorkshop sensors connect directly to the 550 and 850 Universal Interfaces as well as legacy ScienceWorkshop interfaces.  They can connect to other PASCO interfaces with the use of an adapter. More info.

Buying Guide

If buying the Educational Spectrometer System all that is required is Capstone software and a 550 or 850 Universal Interface.  Other interfaces  may be used but in that case we recommend the Educational Spectrophotometer Accessory Kit and adding PASPORT sensors and the other required materials.
