Raman Spectroscopy

Raman measures the interaction of light with matter. Laser light is used as the source and causes the atoms in molecules to vibrate. Analyzing the scattered light provides a 'fingerprint' and reveals information about chemical structure and physical state of samples. Raman applications include measuring molecular and crystallographic orientation, proteins, polymers, pharmaceuticals, inorganics, minerals and many other sample types.

 

Raman Microscopy and Mapping

  • Confocal Raman microscopy with 532 nm, 633 nm and 785 nm
  • Non-destructive¬†analysis of small particles down to ~2 microns
  • Analysis of amorphous materials
  • Analysis of carbon nano-materials
  • Complimentary analysis with FTIR and XRD
