Raman Spectroscopy: FT-Raman & Dispersive Raman

Raman is used to provide qualitative and quantitative information on organic and inorganic molecules in a given sample matrix. Raman is particularly useful for examining polymers, monomers, and other modern materials found in museums, as well as proteinaceous and keratinaceous materials, pigments, and some corrosion products.

Spectra are very specific; chemical identifications can be performed by using search algorithms in digital databases.

Analyses are non-destructive; little or no sample preparation is required.

Fiber optic lines can be used for analyses ‘outside of the box’.

Portable Raman

Portable Raman system with a 10 cm-1 spectral resolution through the Raman shift range of 175–3100 cm-1, with an integrated stabilized 785nm excitation laser. By using the fibre-coupled sampling probe, users can collect Raman spectra of solids or liquids in the field.
