DIY Spectrometer

morreale Monday 15 of December, 2014
Public Works has posted plans for building a DIY Spectrometer to allow people to detect toxins and pollutants in their environment. The spectrometer is based on fluorescence spectrometry. There are three versions
  • USB desktop spectrometer kit
  • Smartphone spectrometer kit
  • Foldable mini-spectrometer kit.
Kits are for sale too ranging from $10 to $50. These spectrometers all work with Spectral Workbench which is open source software available on GitHub. The Spectral Workbench community also operates an open database of spectra to help identify compounds.
