G-S Plastic Optics (GSPO) has upgraded its metrology laboratory with a PerkinElmer Lambda 950 spectrophotometer. The purchase of the spectrophotometer will enable the company to meet their growing program demands.
"We went with PerkinElmer because their spectrophotometers are
recognized as being the industry standard,” said GSPO Director of New Business
Development Will Beich. “Many of our new programs have performance demands
beyond the spectral range normally associated with thermopolymers. Lambda 950
is the perfect choice for the new work that is coming on line at GSPO."
GSPO produces polymer optics with low stress coatings for thin-film
requirements. Their onsite coating chamber configuration also includes a rotation
system to accommodate the different shapes that are increasingly prevalent in
plastic optics design. The newly purchased Lambda 950 is a high performance
UV/Vis/NIR spectrophotometer, which is capable of making transmission,
reflection and absorption measurements across a spectral range of 190 to
