The compact RGB Photonics spectrometer technology enables sophisticated analysis methods to be used in a portable manner in cost and size sensitive environments which have been prior dominated by bulky and complex spectrophotometer or monochromator devices

Broadcom Inc. has acquired spectrometer business

RGB-Photonics is pleased to announce that Broadcom Inc. has acquired the complete spectrometer business from RGB-Photonics. Effective as of today please contact Carina Buechl (carina.buechl@broadcom.com) for product related topics.


Ultra-compact near-infrared spectrometer with fanless cooled high-performace image sensor from 900 to 2500 nm

Key features:

  • Cooled InGaAs detector
  • Ultra-compact design
  • Fanless cooling solution
  • Customizable wavelength ranges up to 2.5 μm
  • Powerful electronics for on-board processing and evaluation
  • Wavelength range from 900 nm up to 2500 nm
  • Resolution down to 4 nm



The Qred is the world’s first truly portable high performance near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer. On a footprint smaller than a credit card, it includes a high-throughput Czerny-Turner optics with a fanless TEC-cooled InGaAs image sensor. The Qred spectrometer breaks the size and cost barriers that prevented widespread applications of NIR spectroscopy in many fields including food safety, quality control, medical diagnostics and pharmaceutical analysis.
