« Back to Spectrometry

This page collects efforts to develop a Raspberry Pi (#raspberry-pi) based spectrometer, building on Public Lab (and others') open source DIY spectrometer designs.

Design goals

The Raspberry Pi camera (especially the version 2 camera) is very sensitive and good resolution, very inexpensive (<$20), has very low baseline noise, and is extremely configurable.

Software

You can now download ready-to-use camera software on our Pi Builder page.
