SKU: Agilent Cary 5000 Category:


Agilent Cary 5000 is a high-performance UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer with excellent photometric performance in the 175-3300 nm range. The Cary 5000 features a PbSmart detector with an extended NIR range to 3300 nm, making it a powerful tool for materials science research.

It is controlled by Cary WinUV, a modular Windows-based software that provides easy access to powerful analysis functions and controls a wide range of optional accessories. The large sample compartment is extended to accommodate large accessories and integrate spheres for spectral and diffuse reflectance testing. A locking mechanism allows for the quick changing and positioning of accessories for reproducible analytical results.

“Very stable and rugged spectrophotometer, very versatile and easy to use. Agilent software is excellent in terms of user interface, flexibility and intuitiveness. After sales service and maintenance is offered by Agilent is one of the best. Instrument is little bulky considering today’s standards.”

Atindra Shukla, Dharmsinh Desai University

Agilent Cary 5000 Features

  • Measure beyond 8.0 absorbance units with reference beam attenuation.
  • Measure 175 to 3300 nm using a PbSmart NIR detector for lower stray light and extended photometric range.
  • Cary WinUV modular software with powerful analysis and enhanced transfer and report export capabilities.
  • Versatile set of accessories for materials research, including spectral and diffuse reflectance.
  • Variable slit widths (down to 0.01 nm) for optimum control over data resolution.
  • Large sample compartment with LockDown mechanism for quick changes and positioning—for reproducible results.
  • Maximum light throughput using Schwarzchild coupling optics for higher accuracy at low transmission levels.
  • Minimal noise and stray light using a floating aluminum casting and double Littrow monochromator.
  • It extended dynamic range by attenuating the reference beam to balance double beam signal levels.
  • Nitrogen purging—separate purging in the sample and monochromator compartments to reduce oxygen and water vapor in the ultra-violet.

How It Works

Optical design


For decades, the Cary design philosophy has aimed to serve those who must push performance limits yet have an instrument adaptable to many applications. From source to detector, the Cary 5000 provides the performance and flexibility needed for academic research or production quality assurance needs. Our diffuse reflectance accessories have various detection options and a sandwich detector for multi-angle specular reflectance and transmission using the Cary Universal Measurement Accessory (UMA).

Superior photometric range and linearity in the UV-Vis


Avoid time-consuming samples and standard dilutions, and confidently measure the most challenging samples. Cary UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometers provide the widest photometric range available across the broadest wavelength range—with absorbances exceeding eight from the UV-Vis to the NIR.

Wide dynamic range quantitative analysis of aqueous potassium permanganate (left) demonstrates excellent photometric accuracy and range. Measurement at 555 nm permits analysis from 0.1–500 ppm without dilution.

Lock it down and walk away.


Cary UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometers feature the unique LockDown mechanism that lets you quickly and reproducibly position your accessories in the instrument. Confidently mount any accessory in the sample compartment in the same place, time-after time—eliminating tools and time-consuming alignment procedures. Configure multiple LockDown plates with different measurement configurations and swap and lock each one in, when needed, in three easy steps.


Cary UV-Vis-NIR in thin films, optics & glass


Accurate measurement of the optical properties of materials supports applied research, product development, and production—including design and prototyping, manufacturing, and quality control. Cary UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometers provide a flexible and robust measurement of reflection and transmission, supporting high-volume optical component manufacturing (mirrors, lenses, and filters). Advanced automation options provide rapid insights and minimize your cost-per-analysis.

Cary UV-Vis-NIR in semiconductors—photonics & optoelectronics devices


Detection and control of light play a critical role in advancing photonic and optoelectronic devices, where accuracy and measurement flexibility are key. Cary UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometers provide specific photonics testing and measurement solutions for photonic devices and components of all sizes and shapes. Reflection and transmission of light can be captured over wide dynamic ranges, optical densities, and spectral resolutions.

Cary UV-Vis-NIR for advanced materials & nanomaterials


Expand your knowledge of nanomaterial analysis techniques and UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy with the Wiley eBook, ‘Nanomaterial Research with UV-Vis-NIR Spectroscopy’.
