    • Microscope Objective-1) Normal WD-5X,20X,100X ; 2) Long WD-50X ; 3) NUV-15X & 40X
    • Imaging/Mapping –XYZ motorized and computer-controlled mapping stage with a minimum travel distance of 110x75x25 mm with a resolution of 50x50x10 nm. Scanning step size for 2D mapping to be better than 50 nm.
    • Temperature- 10 to 300 K (CCR), Room temperature to 1500 K (Furnace)
    • Libraries- Inorganic and minerals, polymeric materials, biochemical. Raman spectroscopy can provide both chemical and structural information, as well as the identification of substances through their characteristic Raman ‘fingerprint’. Raman spectroscopy extracts this information through the detection of Raman scattering from the sample.
    • Other capabilities- Low wavenumber measurements (down to 15cm-1 with 532 nm laser), polarization study with 532 nm laser, remote probe fibre coupling with 532 nm laser.

Technical Specifications

The Raman effect is based on scattering of light, which includes both elastic (Rayleigh) scattering at the same wavelength as the incident light, and inelastic (Raman) scattering at different wavelengths, due to molecular vibrations. Raman scattering is about a million times less intense than Rayleigh scattering. Therefore, to obtain Raman spectra, it is necessary to prevent Rayleigh scattering from overpowering the weaker Raman scattering.

Raman spectra are measured by exciting a sample using a high-intensity laser beam, with the resulting scattered light being passed through a spectrometer. The Raman shift is the energy difference between the incident light and the scattered light. In the resulting spectrum, the vertical axis is the intensity of the scattered light and the horizontal axis is the wavenumber of the Raman shift (cm-1).

The Raman shift is associated with two different energy bands. The shift at wavelengths higher than that of the incident light is termed Stokes scattering. The shift at wavelengths lower than that of the incident light is termed anti-Stokes scattering. Stokes scattering is observed in the lower wavenumber (longer wavelength) region and anti-Stokes scattering in the higher wavenumber (shorter wavelength) region. Typically, higher-intensity Stokes scattering peaks are used for analysis.
