Presented by


Light can be used to understand, study and characterize by spectroscopy the many components that can exist in water. Stephanie Butron and Eric Mesa of Hamamatsu Corp. discuss the various markets that benefit from such measurements, the photonic tools currently available to perform such measurements, and how users can select tools for specific applications.

After discussing different optical sensors and light sources for water analysis, Butron and Mesa demonstrate how to set up and perform a typical measurement using one of Hamamatsu Photonics’ many spectrometers and one of the company’s most popular xenon flash lamp modules. This demo includes key tips to keep in mind when selecting matching accessories, as well as solutions to common obstacles encountered when pairing a spectrometer and flashlamp module. In conclusion, Butron and Mesa share future directions for markets that utilize spectroscopic water analysis and promising spectrometer technology from Hamamatsu Photonics KK.
