A Portable spectrometer is used to perform spectral measurement and inspect LEDs or the like.
The emission spectrum of LCDs is monitored with a micro-spec-trometer. Portable spectrometers are used in environmental analysis of water, soil, and the like.
Absorbance is used in applications such as handy brix meters, which measure sugar content integrated into color printers and other printing equipment

micro-spectrometers monitor the color of printed materials
