The DLP NIRScan NANO is a compact, rugged, and highly adaptable system for performing spectroscopic measurements on material samples in the near infrared (NIR) wherever the measurement needs to be made. The DLP NIRScan Nano utilizes the latest DLP technology to increase the spectral resolution, optical throughput, and consequently the sensitivity of the DLP NIRScan NANO beyond what is available with more traditional scanned grating or photodetector array methods, while reducing the system size and maximizing the functionality and flexibility of measurement. Bluetooth® connectivity allows for remote control and data collection, and standard reflective module for performing reflective-based sampling.


  • • High performance through the use of a larger single point 1-mm detector in comparison to a linear array with very small pixels.
  • • Low cost system through the use of single element detectors and low cost optics.
  • • High resolution DMD allows custom patterns to compensate for the optical distortion of each individual system.
  • • Great signal captured not only because of the larger entendue of the DMD compared to traditional technologies, but also through the use of fast, flexible, and programmable patterns and spectral filters.

NIRscan Nano software

• Spectrometer optical engine featuring DLP2010NIR DMD
• Single-element extended InGaAs detector
• Driver electronics featuring DLPC150 DMD controller and Tiva ™ TM4C1297NCZAD processor
• Reflective sampling module with 2 tungsten lamps
• Power supply/battery, cuvette, and cables sold separately

The NIRScan Nano with Optecks Transmission Module (OTM) interrogates a sample by illuminating it with an infrared source and collecting the light that is transmitted through the sample for coupling to the Nano. A cuvette holder can be used with a cuvette or equipped with mounting components for handling gas, liquid and solid samples.

Example applications of transmission-based spectroscopy include:

  • • Detecting the presence of target compounds in liquids, such as water in juices
  • • Determining the origin of a gas by its composition
  • • Measuring the opacity of plastic tubing used in gas and liquid flow measurements
