SPECTRAL Industries is a high-tech company that develops unique optical sensor systems for non-contact chemical analysis. We apply our very robust and sensitive instrument platform for demanding industrial applications. Applications range from mining to recycling and material processing. SPECTRAL realizes new products by combining academic and practical knowledge and cooperating intensively with high-tech parties around the globe. We focus on realizing unique solutions, where the combination of robustness, mobility and accuracy is of paramount importance.
Scientific spectroscopy is a common tool in laboratories next to the production facilities. Based on sample taking, the production is monitored by these instruments. SPECTRAL envisions these labs will become redundant, as most analysis will take place in-line, during production. This does not require new knowledge – it requires the development of instruments based on existing technology that can operate in a 24/7 harsh environment.
Flexible and responsive to customer challenges, superfast PhD-level team that combines ample experience with state-of-the-art knowledge.
We are always looking for talented people and with our growing number of customers we are happy to recieve your resume. If you have a background in sensor development for mining or recycling applications, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apart from general applications we are especially interested in recieving applications from:
Laser-induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is an emission spectroscopy technique that provides an elemental fingerprint of the sample under investigation.
A LIBS measurement starts with an energetic laser pulse. The laser pulse is tightly focused onto the sample of interest to form a plasma. From this plasma highly discrete colors of light are emitted, called emission lines; these lines are characteristic for the elements present in the sample. A spectrometer unravels the different colors emitted from the sample and creates a spectrum. A digital camera captures the spectrum and dedicated software translates the emitted spectrum into the composition of the sample. Because all elements emit light at characteristic frequencies when excited, LIBS can in principle detect all elements, limited only by the amount of energy present in the plasma and the wavelength range of the used spectrometer.
