Microspectrophotometry or Microspectroscopy combines the visualization of a standard microscope with the analytical tools of a spectrophotometer for material characterization on a microscopic scale. We can help you add spectroscopy to your existing microscope as a microscope accessory to broaden your microscope's functionality.
A microspectrophotometer measures the spectra of microscopic samples or microscopic areas on samples non-destructively, using different wavelengths of light, allowing us to perform various types of spectroscopy at the micro and nanoscale levels. A microspectrophotometer can measure samples on a smaller scale than a standard spectrometer.
Photoluminescence microspectroscopy is hypersensitive, requiring only small sample concentrations for measurements. Raman microspectroscopy allows high magnification visualization of a sample and the chemical specificity of Raman analysis with a microscopic laser spot.
Microspectrophotometry, for example, provides a clearer understanding of microplastics composition and origin. Microspectroscopy can detect strength and conductivity, as in the case of many 2D materials. Among the many other applications are quality control in industrial settings for semiconductor integrated circuits. Biomedical research includes cancer diagnosis and cell behavior. Forensic art authenticators use microspectroscopy to determine the genuineness and state of preservation of a range of artifacts.
Our spectrometers can be added to any standard microscope.
