The list of applications to which the T64000 can be applied is impressive including, thin films, solid state devices, biological chemistry and techniques such as UV, resonance Raman, PL and laser fluorescence.

Overview

In recent years there has been a sharp increase in the number and form of analyses to which Raman spectroscopy has been applied. The introduction of small bench-top spectrometer systems has certainly opened up the fields of study. However, on the back of the renewed interest in the Raman technique, ever more demanding applications have arisen.

For this reason the next generation of Research grade instruments incorporate much of the cutting edge technology found in the bench-top systems, but also provide the higher performance required for samples which prove difficult or impossible to analyze with more routine instrumentation.

The T64000 system is designed to provide a versatile platform for Raman analysis. It has an integrated triple spectrometer design for unprecedented optical stability. The instrument incorporates the proven technology of the confocal LabRAM Raman microprobe. The mechanical coupling is rigid and stable. The optical coupling is efficient and throughput is limited only by theoretical considerations.

High stray light rejection

In using the double subtractive configuration of the T64000, it is possible to obtain spectral information very close in to the laser line. The subtractive mode is ideal for studying such detail as LA modes in polymer systems and crystal lattice modes.

Ultra high resolution

With the use of the ultra-high resolution triple additive configuration of the T64000 triple system, it is possible to very accurately study the position of Raman bands.

This is of particular importance for the measurements of stress in semiconductor materials such as GaN, SiC and diamond where stress induced shifts in the order of 0.1 cm-1 are often studied. The high resolution also offers the level of accuracy required for the authentication and certification of materials for Raman standards.

Single spectrometer technology

With the final mode of operation, the direct spectrograph entrance, the system can be used with holographic notch filter technology and as a more conventional single spectrometer based system.

UV Raman Spectroscopy

The T64000 has many benefits for deep UV Raman measurements.
