Raman Spectroscopy and Imaging


Confocal Raman Microscopy opens up the possibility to fast, non-destructive characterization and chemical imaging of diverse materials spanning minerals (thin sections & powders), biological samples, fluids, and much more. Our instrument is especially optimized for fast imaging of complex samples and materials, where a full Raman spectrum is collected at every pixel. This technique, combined with advanced multivariate statistical techniques, facilitates the detection and identification of all Raman-active species present in the area of interest. It is especially powerful for extracting information on the pure end-members of complex mixtures, even when those end-members are always mixed with other components.
