Detailed Description

Raman Spectroscopy can offer a powerful non-destructive and non-contact method to analyse the chemical composition and molecular structure of a material. The technique involves illuminating a sample with a monochromatic light source, such as a laser. Light that is scattered has a different colour to the light source and can be analysed using a highly sensitive spectrometer. Coupling of a confocal microscope to a Raman spectrometer enables surfaces to be mapped with high spatial resolution, giving an image of the uniformity (homogeneity) of the material.


The Horiba LabRAM Evolution HR Raman Spectrometer is a fully integrated confocal Raman microscope instrument with three laser sources (325nm, 488nm and 633nm), two diffraction gratings (600g/mm and 1800g/mm), motorised XYZ stage and free-space microscope. The instrument is controlled using LabSpec 6 software.
