About this product

Model:  phel_te313
Part Number:  TE313

This spectroscope helps teachers to demonstrate spectroscopy simply and clearly.

Uses include:

Fraunhoffer lines. 
Flame test in chemical analysis. 
Absorption spectra through liquids. 
Bright line spectra from discharge tube. 

Features & specification:

  • Large diameter eyepiece aperture facilitates comfortable viewing of the single, large and bright spectrum which is centrally placed in the field of view.
  • High quality optical components ensure that absorption bands show up clearly - even weak bands that are sometimes difficult to detect.
  • The spectrum is generated by a particularly bright transmission diffraction grating of 600 lines/mm.
  • Fixed construction - no need for adjustment.
  • Robust assembly to withstand years of student handling.
  • Benchtop size: 105mm x 25mm.
  • Boxed weight: 115g.
  • Supplied in protective rigid box.

IMPORTANT: Do not use to observe the Sun directly. Doing so can be very dangerous. You can however observe blue sky though the spectroscope and will see Fraunhofer lines.

I received it safely yesterday. I am satisfied with the quality as I expected. I was worried because the product was not available and does't deal in Japan, but I am glad I made the purchase.
Thank you.

It arrived in Canada safely!

Beautiful device; as advertised!!! Took eight days to arrive in Canada and then a customs backlog took 10 more days to get it to my house. Signed for a package that looked a little scary for wear-and-tear but the packaging kept it safe! I have never used one of these before so a quick visual test looking out the window showed a nice spectrum. I will be using this with Les Wright's PySpectrometer2 setup at so calibration will be done later. Thank you!!!!

A wonderful little spectroscope
20 June 2021  | 

I can highly recommend this little device. It may look like a toy but it is actually a very well designed and powerful tool with quite good resolution. A nice thing to try is burning salt (sodium chloride) in a hot flame (light over a gas stove) and seeing the bright sodium lines. You can just barely see the sodium doublet if you have good eyes. As mentioned in the description, if you point at the blue sky or even some bright clouds, you can very clearly see all the major Fraunhofer lines. One thing that is difficult is recording what you see with a camera. It's possible but a bit of a frustrating experience because it never looks as good as you can see visually.
