The MicroLab Visual Spectrometer is the central unit in a modular spectrometer
system. The spectrometer consists of a sample holder that will suspend a sample vial half-way down the
spectrometer slit. An adjustable slit assembly that provides three slit widths. Spectrometer slit width
determines the resolution of the image (smaller slits produce a higher spectral resolution and more
accurate wavelength measurement), and the light throughput or brightness of the image (wider slits
produce brighter images). The three slits are laser-cut and are 760, 380, and 125 microns wide. Full
width half maximum (FWHM) resolution is 6 nm with the narrowest slit and is constant across the
spectrum. A collimating lens and diffraction grating placed a distance from the slit create the spectrum.
The image may be viewed by eye, with a video (web) camera for a demonstration, or with a cell-phone
camera for photographic recording and measurement of the spectra
