ENLIGHTEN™ Spectroscopy Software

We believe that spectroscopy software should be intuitive, easy to learn, and packed with convenient features to simplify data acquisition. And it should be free! Our ENLIGHTEN™ spectroscopy software has all the features you need to quickly and easily collect Raman, absorbance, transmission, reflectance, or emission spectra from Wasatch Photonics spectrometers.

Software development kits (SDKs) are also available to enable development of software for specific platforms. We’re adding new features constantly, so check back regularly for updates & download the latest version!

Wiley-Powered-by-KnowItAll-logoWe also offer embedded Raman library matching powered by Wiley’s KnowItAll spectral identification engine. Perform material identification against the world’s largest library, containing over 25,000 monomers, or build your own custom library. Ask us about a free trial.

<<< NOTE: If upgrading ENLIGHTEN from 2.x to 3.x, please uninstall the previous version first. All 3.x releases upgrade automatically upon install!
