XperRam - S Raman System

Confocal Raman Spectroscopy Imaging

Description:

This is the most popular configuration in the range, offering the optimum mix of high performance, flexibility and affordability.

It utilises confocal/3D Raman imaging and analysis, fast 2D scanning over a wide area (200µm x 200µm). Includes bright field microscope imaging, up to three laser/filter combinations (532-1064nm), interchangeable and rotatable VPH grating, Photoluminescence and Electroluminescence.

The interchangeable VPH grating deliversensure that you gain high spectral efficiency in your measurement’s vs other technologies.

A complete laboratory instrument that will suit most application needs, the modular design alows for future expansion as your research develops and budgets allow.

Included as standard:

  • Reflected LED illuminator for bright field
  • Mechanical X-Y stage with right hand control
  • Automatically controlled Z-axis position
  • Include main frame, stage plate, control box, interface cable, power cable.r

 

Software:

All Spectrometers come with the Nanospectrum Software Suite

  • Raman/PL spectrum acquisition & imaging
  • Spectrum data export format: .txt, .csv
  • 2D mapping data export format: .spm, .csv
  • Option: TRPL spectrum acquisition & imaging
