Benchtop Terahertz Time-Domain Spectrometer TDS10XX
 
  Poster THz spectrometer TDS1008 (pdf)
Support: Determination of material parameters from THz measurements (pdf)
 
 
 

The benchtop THz spectrometer TDS10XX is easy to use and meant for laboratories where material characterization shall be performed in the THz region. The spectrometer comes with an internal sample compartment (which can be purged with nitrogen) or external fiber-coupled antennas. Both setups can be used to conduct transmission and reflection measurements with a collimated or focused THz beam. The TDS10XX is controlled via USB using a laptop with the pre-installed T3DS software package.

The following optional features are available:

  • SHR - Sample Holder for Reflection measurements
  • SHA - Sample Holder for Attenuated total reflection measurements
  • SHF - Sample Holder for Fiber coupled antennas
  • FSU - Fast Scan Unit with maximum scan rate of 100 Hz
  • IU - Imaging Unit for fiber coupled antennas
  • T2T - Theta-2-Theta angular scanning unit for fiber coupled antennas
  • 2FCA - 2 additional Fiber Coupled Antennas

  Data and price information  
  The performance and the price of the spectrometer depend on the femtosecond laser used and the chosen configuration. The best results can be achieved using a 800 nm laser source (TDS1008) and the internal sample compartment with a nitrogen purge.

Part-No Description Comments Data sheet Price [EUR]
SHT Sample Holder Transmission The sample holder transmission consists of a plate, two sleds with focusing THz lenses, one adapter for large samples (at least 30 x 30 mm) with collimated THz beam and one adapter for small samples (at least 10 x 10 mm) with focused THz beam. The SHT comes with the base structure and every TDS system. PDF Data 1,700
SHR Sample Holder Reflection The sample holder reflection consists of a plate, two sleds with focusing THz lenses, one adapter for large samples (at least 30 x 30 mm) and one adapter for small samples (at least 10 x 10 mm). The angle of incidence or the SHR is 30 by default. The sample holder for reflection measurements requires the base structure that comes with the sample holder transmission (SHT) and every TDS system. PDF Data 1,100
SHA Sample Holder Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR) The sample holder for ATR measurements on strong absorbing liquids or solids with a refractive index lower then 2.5 consists of a mounted silicon prism with refractive index 3.416. The incidence angle of the THz beam on the prism base is 51.6 deg. The sample holder for ATR measurements requires the base structure that comes with the sample holder transmission (SHT) and every TDS system. PDF Data 2,000
SHF Sample Holder for Fiber coupled antennas The sample holder for fiber coupled antennas consists of a base structure, one adapter for large samples (at least 30 x 30 mm) with collimated THz beam and one adapter for small samples (at least 10 x 10 mm) with focused THz beam. The SHF can be used for both, transmission and reflections measurements. The SHF comes with every TDS system that was ordered with fiber coupled antennas. PDF Data 900
