Researchers across almost every scientific discipline utilise spectroscopic techniques to interrogate light – probing its intensity as a function of its wavelength. By collecting this information, researchers can probe many physical systems – from the material composition of stars and galaxies and the detection of previously undiscovered exoplanets, to the probing of atomic scale defects in next-generation nanomaterials and even to interact with quantum hardware.

Our team is building a compact, affordable, and robust ultra high-resolution spectrograph to enable researchers to conduct precision experiments. By using a modified echelle spectrograph design we can achieve broad-spectrum, single exposure imaging with high spectral resolution.
