Agilent Technologies has launched the Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS), for high quality UV-Vis-NIR characterization, offering lower cost analysis and improved data quality for thin film, solar, glass, optics and other advanced materials applications.

The new product represents a cutting-edge tool for discovery and development, and provides manufacturers with the ability to reduce costs through faster time-to-market and more rigorous quality control.

Spectrophotometric measurements are key in the understanding of the optical properties of new material development and in quality analysis and quality control. The ability to measure absolute reflection and transmission at variable angles unattended is a key requirement in advanced spectrophotometry.

"The Cary 7000 is an invaluable tool for all labs and companies producing multilayer optical coatings for different applications, especially highly demanding coatings consisting of many dozens of layers," said Michael K. Trubetskov, Ph.D., leading research fellow for the Research Computing Center at Moscow State University. "I was particularly impressed by the fact that even for large incident angles, multi-angle data are still consistent."

"The Cary name is synonymous with high-performance and has become the standard for researchers wanting to extend the boundaries of spectrophotometric measurement," said Philip Binns, Agilent vice president and general manager for spectroscopy products. "The Cary 7000 UMS continues this tradition by offering the greatest flexibility, performance and productivity ever seen in a UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer."
