An instrument for obtaining a spectrum; in astronomy, usually attached to a telescope to record the spectrum of a star, galaxy, or other astronomical object.
A device to measure the spectral distribution of electromagnetic radiation. This may be achieved by a dispersive prism, grating, or circular interference filter with a detector placed behind a slit. If one detector is used, the dispersive element is moved so as to sequentially pass all dispersed wavelengths across the slit. In an interferometer-spectrometer, on the other hand, all wavelengths are examined all the time, the scanning effect being achieved rapidly by oscillating two, partly reflective (usually parallel) plates so that interference fringes are produced. A Fourier transform is required to reconstruct the spectrum.
An instrument which measure the position of spectral lines.
An instrument that provides information on the bonding of an atom in a mineral by bombarding it with gamma rays and measuring small shifts in the velocity or energy of the gamma rays emitted. It is most commonly used to identify the nature of iron in a mineral.
An instrument for producing ions in a gas and determining their mass and hence composition.
An instrument for measuring the emission or absorption of light of a particular wavelength.

An instrument used to study the electromagnetic spectrum.
instrument that allows to resolve the spectrum of a source, and to measure the intensity of the light, at different wavelengths.
An instrument that spreads light or other electromagnetic radiation into its component wavelengths spectrum), recording the results photographically or electronically. From that it is possible to measure the intensity of radiation as a function of wavelength.
An instrument that measures the wavelength of electromagnetic radiation.
A chemical analytical instrument used in spectroscopy.
An instrument that measures the intensity of radiation, including light, as a function of its wavelength. Because different substances, including elements and compounds, both absorb and emit specific wavelengths of radiation, spectrometers can be used to measure the composition of distant stars and planets, as well as the composition of various samples on earth including soil, water, minerals and gases.
An optical instrument that allows a user to view, record, and analyze a spectrum by rendering its component waves distinct and visible.
A device consisting of a slit through which a telescope views and examines light. It is most commonly used to measure wavelengths of light.
A generic term for a device that measures the intensity of radiation as a function of frequency (or wavelength) of the radiation or that breaks down any signal into its frequency components.
A spectrometer is an optical instrument used to measure properties of light over a specific portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. The variable measured is most often the light's intensity but could also, for instance, be the polarization state. The independent variable is usually the wavelength of the light, normally expressed as some fraction of a meter, but sometimes expressed as some unit directly proportional to the photon energy, such as wavenumber or electron volts, which has a reciprocal relationship to wavelength.
