CMOS Camera Module: JDEPC-OV05

cmos camera focal length is now calibrated at 152.39mm (camera focal eye to forward face of cuvette holder.)

Measurements between the slit to cmos camera eye are not as important as precise alignment of camera to DVD grating and DVD grating to slit entrance, so with this in mind, the camera is now at 40 deg relative to slit entrance and DVD grating is at same (40 deg) relative to cmos camera eye.

The ruling density of the DVD grating is 8.5 GB 0.36mm groove spacing, which equates to 2770 lines per mm, wavelength of 360nm. The slit width is now 0.16mm and a spectral bandwidth of 1.19nm, using the new Gillette razor blade design I made. Project box dimensions are: 190mm X 109mm X 55mm.

Slit width dimensions are: 25mm in length, Cmos camera from slit: 88mm Camera angle: 40 degrees DVD grating angle: 40 degrees. Entrance coupler for slit and cuvette holder: 44mm in Diameter.

Wavelength range = 353nm – 693nm (reliably)

I replaced the old JDEPC-ov04 webcam with the more recent modification from the same company, with the one you can purchase now from Plab store. The JDEPC-ov05 and removed its IR filter. I will be posting it's specifications here also, I preformed the same theoretical calculation for resolution below, with the new values of 0.16mm slit width and a new DVD grating of 2770 lines, using 532nm laser, as my resolution wavelength:

1 X 0.16mm X 2770lines = 443.2
R = 531.2/443.2 = 1.19

Resolution= 1.19

So I have a bandwidth now of 1.19 (nm), which I feel comfortable with. I used my portable laser as my calibration vehicle (which is very stable, so I trust it's FWHM value.)

3-D view of complete assembly of the 10X focal lens holder for the DAV5 V3 spectrometer. The holder has an attached rail [2mm width] rail slider that fits into the base, which allows for a 10mm total movement forward or backward in order to focus.

On the bottom which is depicted on the drawing, is an M3 mounting hole for a swivel insert in order to direct beam focus on second mirror.

Picture number 2, illustrates placement of first mirror and focal mirror at exactly 35 degrees for both mirror platforms, this conclusion was verified through my own experiments on my optics protoboard to make sure this design would work.

Now sometime in the future I may add a 10X objective eye piece lens in between the two mirrors if the focal mirror is not adequate enough to focus the wavelength correctly, or if I want to precisely choose a wavelength through incident angle diffraction.

So this is my rough draft number 1 ( without the lid of course.)
