Geological science is the study the Earth's physical structure and substances, from the history of rocks, to the processes that act on them. HORIBA Raman spectroscopy systems provide fast and non-destructive identification of minerals, in the distribution of the different compounds or phases in geological settings. HORIBA’s particle size solutions enable the analysis of soils and sediments and can be used for processing and quality control of processed mineral products
The Raman spectra of elemental carbon materials are known to be sensitive to polymorphy. For hard carbon films, the spectra of amorphous and diamond-like carbons can be band-fit to separate the contributions of the “graphitic carbon» (G band) from the «disordered carbon» (D band).Find Out More
Natural rocks composing the Earth are complex. They consist of an aggregate of one or more minerals. Each mineral can be defined by its chemical
composition and its crystalline structure and sometimes can also contain fluid inclusions. Geologists need a powerful characterization technique to
get detailed information on the rock formation history.
