The technology-driven development of particular spectrometers for LIBS-, ICP-, and high energy plasma spectroscopy applications depends substantially on the progress of array detectors (EM CCD, Progressive Scan CCD, back-thinned CMOS, CID). All OES (Optical Emission Spectrometry) techniques require a sophisticated spectrometer design, characterized by totally controlled operational mode, simultaneous signal acquisition, maximum sensitivity from VUV to NIR, high spectral resolution, and high optical throughput.
By now, a considerable number of CCD spectrographs have been designed at the ISAS and partially commercialized for a wide scale of scientific and routine OES applications. Collaborations have been established both with research (e.g. TU Berlin, ETH, BAM, DLR, AIT, WWU Münster) and with industrial partners (e.g. PerkinElmer, LTB, Knauer, LLA, Analytik Jena, IMT).

Currently, based on a research and development agreement with IMT GmbH, the echelle plasma emission detector EPED for gas chromatography was developed. This innovative measuring system was introduced to the market at the ANALYTIKA 2010.
Funded by the Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation, a common project with the Astrophysical Institute of Potsdam (AIP) and the BAM, focussing on the fast classification of industrial goods by means of laser-induced plasma spectroscopy (LIBS), was launched in 2010.
