- The high-energy (f/6.7) echelle-based Optima™ polychromator utilizes two SCD Detectors
- The 80 by 160 mm echelle grating has 79 lines per mm and a blaze angle of 63.4 degrees.
- A 60-degree fused-quartz prism is used as the cross disperser for the visible region (403-782 nm).
- The UV disperser incorporates Schmidt correction to eliminate aberration from the 400-mm radius camera sphere.
Plasma viewing: The vertical torch and radial view only. The software can optimize the viewing position.
Shutter and Hg recalibration system:
- The computer-controlled, pneumatically operated shutter automatically opens and closes for each sample, protecting the first transfer mirror from long exposures to the intense UV radiation of the plasma, extending the useful lifetime of the mirror.
- A mercury lamp is built into the shutter mechanism and can be viewed at a user selected frequency to automatically update the system wavelength calibration at the 253 nm mercury emission line.
- The patented PerkinElmer® Segmented-array Charge-coupled Device (SCD) detectors consist of 235 addressable subarrays, covering approximately 6000 wavelengths on a 13 by 19 mm silicon substrate.
- Typical readout noise is about 13 electrons RMS; dark current is less than 100 electrons/pixel/second; and readout speed is 50 µsec/pixel.
- Second-generation 40-MHz, free-running, solid-state RF generator
- Adjustable from 750 to 1500 watts, in 1-watt increments
- The power efficiency: greater than 81% with < 0.1% variation in output power stability
Torch/torch mount: A unique, quich-change and demountable torch design with 2.0 mm standard alumina injector. A variety of other injectors is available. No tools are required for torch or sample-introduction removal.
Spray chambers: Instruments can be ordered with a Ryton®HF-resistant Scott-type or a glass cyclonic spray chamber. An optional spray-chamber compartment thermostat is available for laboratories with minimal air conditioning.
Nebulizers: The Optima 7300 V systems can be ordered with a cross-flow or glass concentric nebulizer. Additional nebulizers are available.
Power: One 200-240 V, 20A line, single phase, 50/60 Hz
Dimensions: 150 x 76 x 89 cm (Wx H x D), 200 kg
Environmental: The instrument will operate with a laboratory temperature between 15 and 35 °C (59-95 °F).
For optimum instrument performance, the room temperature should be controlled at 20 ±2 °C
