Raman Research Solutions
From high performance confocal Raman microscopes to tailor-made solutions and hyphenations, we have been supporting research endeavors since 1968!
HORIBA Scientific is the world leader in Raman spectroscopy, with the benefits of more than 50 years of innovation in the technique. Raman microscopy is a technique which allows fast, non-destructive chemical analysis of solids, powders, liquids, and gases – today, Raman spectroscopy is used in many varied fields, from fundamental research up to applied solutions.
We provide complete Raman spectroscopy solutions for analytical measurements, research Raman, UV Raman, QC/QA and industrial Raman applications. These include Raman spectrometers, hybrid Raman systems (such as AFM-Raman), modular Raman systems, transmission Raman analyzers, dedicated in situ process Raman spectrometers, and miniaturized Raman instruments for high volume OEM manufacturers. Our Raman spectroscopy instruments are used in prestigious universities, research laboratories, in demanding industries with production lines across the world, and are well-known for:
Due to Covid-19, a wide choice of protective masks are now on the market. These types of masks are distinguished, in particular, by their different efficiencies linked to their filtration capacity. These differences in protective properties have therefore made it essential to characterize the composition of the masks. In this paper, we present why LabRAM Soleil™ confocal Raman multimode microscope is the perfect tool for studying the distribution and composition of mask fibers.Read more
An imaging platform that combines Raman microscopy with enhanced darkfield and hyperspectral imaging technology was used to study lung tissue sections containing carbon nanotubes. It enabled easy identification of the regions containing the carbon nanotubes followed by spectroscopic characterization of chemical composition.Read more
In this webinar, the technique of particle correlated Raman spectroscopy (PCRS) will be presented, and will be illustrated by representative application examples from fields including forensics, pharmaceuticals/cosmetics, and microplastics. Included will be a discussion of handling and preparation of a variety of sample types including powders, tablets, and suspensions.Read more

Researchers have found microplastics in marine and terrestrial life. It invades the food chain, and it’s even been found in salt, sugar, beer, alcohol, and honey. Not to mention glaciers and rainwater. Raman spectroscopy plays a key role in identifying the types and origins of microplastics. This e-book shows more about characterizing microplastics, its implications, sources and destinations.Read more
HORIBA Raman confocal microscopes use a variety of research grade upright, open space and inverted microscopes from different vendors, including Olympus and Nikon. This technical note describes the available options and explains their typical use, assisting the selection of relevant options at the time of order or for future upgrade.Read more
In order to overcome limitations in spectral range offered by standard dielectric mirrors, HORIBA developed a customized dielectric mirror for the LabRAM Soleil™, the new Confocal Raman Multimode Microscope.

In this article, we present how our Raman and X-Ray Fluorescence microscopies can be combined to shed some light on the origins of the universe. We show some examples on a meteorite piece and on water inclusion in quartz matrix.Read more
QScan™, a patented unique feature of LabRAM Soleil™, generates highly homogeneous laser lightsheet, enabling non-destructive confocal slicing of multilayer samples. It enables mapping without moving and true point-and-shoot operation, when one can directly acquire a spectrum by clicking anywhere in the video image.

Spectral resolution is one of the most important factors to think about when acquiring a Raman spectrum. Defined as the wavenumber, wavelength, or frequency difference
of two still distinguishable lines in a spectrum, spectral resolution requirements vary depending on the information one would like to obtain.
Segmented channel waveguides have been fabricated in single crystal KTiOPO4 through a topotactic process of partial cation exchange. The ion-exchanged waveguides maintain the high nonlinear susceptibility of KTiOPO4 to function as frequency doubling laser light sources. We apply three dimensional (3D) Raman imaging to understand and characterize the changes to the chemical bonding and crystalline structure as well as measure the volumetric structure of the waveguide segments.Read more
In the final step of the formulation process, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries have to control their products to check if the compounds' distribution in the final product, or in its application form, i.e. dispersed on a skin for an intracutaneous product, are homogenous and stable in order to guarantee the product's efficacy. In this paper, we present why confocal Raman microscopy is an excellent tool for product characterization after formulation, illustrating more capabilities of the LabRAM Soleil™ confocal Raman multimode microscope.Read more
2D materials are state-of-the-art in nano- and opto-electronics. Characterizing their structural properties with a non-destructive approach at the micron scale is very important. We demonstrate in this paper how LabRAM Soleil™ confocal Raman multimode microscope is the perfect tool for these materials characterization.Read more
Raman microscopy is an excellent tool to address the polymer research. Raman microscopy can be used to characterize raw materials, to inline or outline monitor polymerization process, to investigate orientation and crystallization changes, and also to control the quality and traceability of genuine products, by understanding defects and compounds distribution. In this article we present how HORIBA Raman microscopy solutions can support the polymer chemical and structural understanding.Read more
Polymorphisms characterization of active molecules is one piece of important information for the pharmaceutical industry, not only on raw powders, but also in the final form. Raman microscopy remains the most appropriate solution for this application. In this paper, we present an example of polymorphisms characterization by Raman microscopy using the super low frequency module.Read more
