Why use Raman?
Although Raman spectroscopy has been recognized as a light scattering process since 1928, other techniques such as NMR, FTIR and UV-Vis have been more widely adopted in materials and chemical analysis laboratories. Raman has come of age in the recent past due to developments of lasers, optics and detectors, bringing this extremely information rich technique into the everyday analytical lab for chemical identification, the characterization of molecular structures, crystallization, molecular bonding, stress and environmental factors.
Raman microscopy provides spatial resolution down to the sub-micron level and enables confocal microscopy to examine layered materials. Raman imaging enables you to map chemistries across areas of a sample to identify inclusions, contaminants, homogeneity or interfaces.
Raman offers several advantages over other spectroscopic techniques:
Add Raman to existing techniques
The Thermo Scientific iXR Raman spectrometer is designed for multi-modal use with techniques such as X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, SEM/EDS and rheology. Coupling the iXR module to your technique enables concurrent measurements at one location. One measurement provides answers from multiple techniques all taken at the same time and in the same conditions. Learn about your samples physical, chemical and structural characteristics and how they affect one another from one measurement.
The iXR spectrometer uses the same lasers, gratings and filters as the DXR3 family, making it a versatile complement in multi-technique, multi-user laboratories.
Powerful OMNIC Software Suite
Award-winning Thermo Scientific OMNIC software is the widely adopted platform for FTIR and Raman spectroscopy. Users trained in one technique are automatically prepared for the other. This robust software platform provides tools for practically any analysis, from incoming material verification to studying dynamic events such as time- or temperature-based analysis.
For the investigative user requiring searching and identification of unknowns, OMNIC Specta software combines a set of spectral identification tools with a logical interface that steps through data analysis quickly and efficiently. The software includes multi-component search, contaminant search, spectral interpretation, and a knowledge base of scientific documentation. The software indexes IR and Raman spectral data in many commercial formats and organizes it for immediate use in reviews, searches, measurements, and reports.
