DXP Mercury-4
DXP Mercury-4 Software

XIA offers both host software and driver support for the
DXP Mercury-4:

  1. ProSpect is a full featured Windows application, available to all DXP users (pictured below).
  2. The Handel/Xerxes driver libraries are available to users who wish to use their own software to acquire data. The goal is to provide an interface to the DXP hardware in spectroscopic units (eV, microseconds, etc...) while still allowing for safe, direct-access to the DSP.

Please contact the DXP team at to discuss your application today!

DXP Driver Libraries: Handel

Handel is a high-level device driver that provides an interface to the DXP hardware in spectroscopic units (eV, microseconds, etc...) while still allowing for safe, direct-access to the DSP. Additionally, Handel only requires a single configuration file in order to start the system. The trade-off for this ease of use is an increase in size. At a minimum, Handel requires 5 libraries to operate with a single product, while Xerxes only requires 3. For more information, please consult the Handel API or contact us at .
