Raman Microspectroscopy Advancement
Craic Technologies has announced the addition of more laser wavelengths to its Craic Apollo Raman microspectrometer. Designed to be added to light microscopes, the Craic Apollo enables scientists and engineers to measure the Raman spectra from microscopic samples or microscope sampling areas of large samples. The Craic Apollo can be added to a Craic Technologies microspectrophotometer, adding Raman microspectroscopy to UV-visible-NIR absorbance, reflectance, and fluorescence microspectroscopy and imaging. The Apollo is now offered with lasers with peak wavelengths ranging from 405 nm through 830 nm.
The microspectrometer is a self-contained unit that features Raman-grade lasers as the light source, an advanced optical interface to the microscope, a Raman spectrometer, and software for instrument control and data analysis. Lasers are now offered through the visible and near-infrared region. Each module can be used either individually or can be combined so multiple laser wavelengths can be used to probe a single sample.
