RAMAN spectrometry

Renishaw inVia confocal Raman microscope

Material characterisation by inelastic scattering of monochromatic light:
The sample is excited by laser beams. The difference in energy between the incident and scattered photon allows studying the molecules vibrational modes of the material, their analysis provides chemical and structural information.

Due to its motorised stage, it is possible to perform chemical mapping of the sample.

Technical features

  • equipped with two lasers (514 nm and 633 nm)
  • holographic grating (1800 lines/mm and 2400 lines/mm)
  • edge filter with Rayleigh diffusion cut-off at 120 cm-1
  • CCD camera as detector
