GooFra optics: The new standard in spectrometry!



The goal is to improve the spectrometer technology. This enables people to get a more precise measurement of the composition in a material. To do this the following is different:

  • Higher sensitivity. The existing spectrometers are working with a simular sensitivity and measuring speed for all the wavelengths that are suitable for the spectrometer. The new spectrometer abandons this principle! This new light sensible instruments deviates from the standard and gives additional information. For every wavelength there is an adjusted measuring sensitivity and measuring time. This results in quicker measuring times and improved sensitivity for those wavelengths, which would have been suppressed as noise when using a “normal” spectrometer. If necessary or desired, the application can convert the results into a common presentation. Compatibility with current methods is therefore ensured. As a result: more and more precise measurement data.
  • Integrating 16 light sources instead of 1 or 2 light sources and multiple light sensible measuring instruments into 1 device. The results of the measurements are highly dependent on the combination of light and the material that is being measured. As a result of the new development, the device is able to quickly find the best combination of light and material. This is possible by selecting and controlling the different light sources present in the device. Therefore, it is achievable to get an optimal measurement result.
  • Being able to measure between 300 and 2300 nm.
  • The optimal interaction of integrated light sources and multiple spectrometers. In order to make quick measurements these light sources can be turned on and off independently.

These devices have to be able to measure spectral responses of materials after they are irradiated with ultraviolet light (UV), visible light (VIS) or infrared light (IR). The measuring instrument must be able to quickly and accurately measure in such a way that, if the material to be tested is irradiated sequentially or simultaneously with different light sources, the spectral transition response can be measured. It is also possible, with a higher discrimination factor, to identify the materials and to measure the existence of the raw materials.

Essential is that with the right combination of light source and the (patented) light-sensitive measuring instrument more materials can be measured. As a result, materials can be measured which were not visible with the current equipment as well as making the existing materials more visible. Our previously conducted feasibility study indicates that this will be successful.
