Craic Technologies has introduced Spectral Surface Mapping (S2M) capabilities for its Perfect Vision microspectrophotometer line. S2M gives Craic microspectrometer users the ability to map the spectral variation of surfaces of their samples with microscopic spatial resolution. Surface profiles can be created using UV-visible-NIR transmission, absorbance, emission, fluorescence, and polarization microspectral data. S2M can even create maps from Raman microspectral data from the Craic Apollo Raman microspectrometer.
S2M includes a software module to be used with Craic Technologies Minerva microspectrometer control software. When employed with Craic's microspectrometers with programmable stages, S2M allows a user to automatically take spectral measurements with user-defined mapping patterns that reach to the limits of the stage itself. With the ability to measure up to a million points, high-definition maps of the spectral response of the surface of a sample may be generated.
