APPLICATIONS

RAMAN MULTIPLEXING

Raman hyperspectral imaging is a powerful technique to study a wide range of materials, from nanopatterned surfaces to biological systems. Because of its high throughput, RIMA™ allows the acquisition of spectrally resolved maps of large area samples, without damaging the surface.

Photon etc's Global Imaging Technology

This video shows the conceptual difference between hyperspectral global imaging and raster scan (line-scan, push- broom). With global imaging, the gain in acquiring 3D data, 2D spatial and 1D spectral, is important since the only a few monochromatic images are required to cover the complete spectral range where one needs to take the full spectrum for each point or  line in the image with other technologies.

RAMAN SHIFT CALCULATOR

Raman spectroscopy is a form of vibrational spectroscopy technique where vibrational, rotational frequencies and low-frequency modes of a system caused by the inelastic scattering of light (the Raman shift) are monitored. These vibrational frequencies are used as chemical fingerprints for the identification of molecules. Usually, Raman shifts are typically in wavenumbers, which have units of inverse length (cm-1). In order to convert between spectral wavelength, wavenumbers and frequency of shift in the Raman spectrum, we have developed this applet to compute Raman shifts and bandwidths.
