Features

  • Crafted from UV Fused Quartz Glass for the 200 nm - 3 µm Wavelength Range
  • Versions with Two or Four Polished Windows for Spectroscopy Use
  • 100 µL, 700 µL, 1400 µL, and 3500 µL Capacities Available
  • Standard 12.5 mm Square Profile with 10 mm Transmitted Path Length
  • Available with PTFE Top Caps or Airtight Stoppers

Our Cuvettes are high-quality cells designed to hold liquid samples. The UV fused quartz glass construction allows these cuvettes to be used with UV light at wavelengths as low as 200 nm, as well as with visible and infrared light up to 3 µm. Thorlabs offers cuvettes with either two polished sides, for use in absorption spectroscopy experiments, or four polished sides, for use in fluorescence spectroscopy. The polished sides can be cleaned using standard optics cleaning procedures. Versions are also available with one of two PTFE tops: a cap to block dust and other particles or a stopper to prevent evaporation and provide an airtight seal.

The standard 12.5 mm square outside dimension and 10 mm transmitted path length through the sample make these cuvettes compatible with most spectrophotometers as well as our cage-compatible Cuvette Holder and Fiber Optic Filter and Cuvette Mounts. We offer macro, micro, and super micro sizes (see the tables below for more information), sold in packs of two. The macro cuvette with four polished sides and a dust cap is also available in a version with enhanced chemical resistance. All cuvettes are engraved on the outer surface with the item # and a letter "Q" designating quartz construction and the typical input side.

Please note that all super micro and micro cuvettes are assembled with glue, which can be destroyed by benzene or other solutions with strong corrosive characteristics. Our macro cuvettes are assembled by heating the quartz to a high temperature and then applying pressure to adhere the pieces together, allowing the cuvettes to hold corrosive materials. Contact Tech Support for instructions on cleaning the cuvettes found on this page.

It seems like the transmission is low for a quartz cuvette. Is the transmission in the graph internal transmission or transmission including Fresnel reflection losses? Thanks very much.

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: The transmission graph includes the Fresnel reflection losses from 4 surfaces.

Hi, This line of product is very attractive, unfortunately the cap that you are using are not good enough for the application I'm looking for. By using volatile solvent like methanol the square lid are not good enough to stop the evaporation of it. Also, if one is using oxygen sensitive product a better lid would prevent the oxygen to penetrate the cell for at least a short amount of time. The lid I'd have liked to see (at least in option) for those cuvette is of this kind: http://www.hellma-analytics.com/kuevetten/135/en/pg_id,40$g_id,28$item_id,114/absorption-cells.html#114 Best Emmanuel

Response from Tim at Thorlabs to Emmanuel: Thank you for your feedback! This would certainly be a valuable addition and we're looking to make this available as an off the shelf solution.

  • 8.5 mm Beam Height as Measured from the Bottom of the Cuvette
  • Two Polished Windows for Absorption Spectroscopy
  • PTFE Cap Included with Each Cuvette to Block Dust or Other Particles
  • Fabricated from UV Fused Quartz (200 nm - 3 µm)
  • Four Capacities Available: 100 µL, 700 µL, 1400 µL, and 3500 µL
  • Sold in Packs of 2

These UV Fused Quartz cuvettes have two polished sides for use in absorption spectroscopy experiments and two frosted sides for handling. The polished sides can be cleaned using standard optics cleaning procedures. Since these cuvettes only have two polished windows, they are not appropriate for use in fluorescence spectroscopy where it is necessary to have four polished windows to allow measurement of the fluorescence at right angles to the beam path. Thorlabs offers cuvettes with four polished sides below.

These cuvettes have a standard 12.5 mm square outside dimension, a 10 mm transmitted path length through the sample, and are available in one of four capacities (100 µL, 700 µL, 1400 µL, or 3500 µL). Each cuvette is engraved with the Item # as well as a letter "Q" that designates its quartz construction and the typical input side, and each comes with a PTFE cap to prevent contamination by dust or other particles. The unused optical surfaces are black to reduce scattered light, except for those on the CV10Q3500.

Please note that the CV10Q100, CV10Q700, and CV10Q1400 cuvettes are assembled with glue, which can be destroyed by benzene or other solutions with strong corrosive characteristics.

Each cuvette is engraved with the Item # as well as a letter "Q" that designates its quartz construction and the typical input side, and each comes with a PTFE stopper to create an airtight seal and to prevent evaporation and atmospheric contamination of the contents. The stopper should be inserted gently into the top of the cuvette; excessive force will cause difficulty with removing the stopper. The unused optical surfaces are black to reduce scattered light, except for those on the CV10Q3500S.

Please note that the CV10Q100S, CV10Q700S, and CV10Q1400S cuvettes are assembled with glue, which can be destroyed by benzene or other solutions with strong corrosive characteristics.

  • Enhanced Chemical Resistance Cuvette Available with a 3500 µL Capacity
  • Sold in Packs of 2

These UV Fused Quartz cuvettes have four polished sides for use in fluorescence spectroscopy experiments. The four polished windows allow measurement of the fluorescence at right angles to the beam path and can be cleaned using standard optics cleaning procedures. While these cuvettes are designed for use in fluorescence, the through beam windows can be used independently for other spectroscopic applications. Thorlabs also offers cuvettes with two polished sides and two frosted sides designed specifically for these other applications (sold above).

These cuvettes have a standard 12.5 mm square outside dimension, a 10 mm transmitted path length through the sample, and are available in one of four capacities (100 µL, 700 µL, 1400 µL, or 3500 µL). The standard 100 µL, 700 µL, and 1400 µL cuvettes (item # CV10Q100F, CV10Q700F, and CV10Q1400F) are assembled with glue, which can be destroyed by benzene or other solutions with strong corrosive characteristics. Our 3500 µL cuvette is available in a standard version (item # C10Q3500F) as well as an enhanced, chemically resistant version (item # C10Q3500F-E). Both 3500 µL cuvettes are assembled by first heating the quartz to a high temperature and then applying pressure to adhere the pieces together. This method eliminates the need for glue, which allows the cuvette to hold solutions with corrosive properties, similar to those of nitrohydrochloric acid (aqua regia), without being damaged. The standard 3500 µL cuvette (item # CV10Q3500F) has quartz powder applied to the edges before heating, whereas the enhanced, chemically-resistant 3500 µL cuvette is made by finely polishing the quartz pieces before attaching, consequently providing smoother seams. 

Each cuvette is engraved with the Item # as well as a letter "Q" that designates its quartz construction and the optical window axis, and each comes with a PTFE cap to prevent contamination by dust or other particles.
