Raman Imaging and Spectroscopy

A full range of Spectrometers

HORIBA Scientific is the world leader in Raman spectroscopy, with a long history in the technique. HORIBA Scientific has pioneered systems for Raman spectroscopy, designing and manufacturing them for over four decades.  The Raman effect allows fast, non-destructive chemical analysis of solids, powders, liquids, and gases – today, Raman spectroscopy is used in many varied fields, from fundamental research through 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 microscopes, hybrid Raman systems  (such as AFM-Raman), modular Raman systems, transmission Raman analysers, dedicated in situ process Raman spectrometers, and miniaturised Raman instruments for high volume OEM manufacture. Our Raman spectroscopy instruments are used in universities, research laboratories, and production lines across the world.

Spectral Resolution Tech Note - RA-TN14

Technical Note - Spectral Resolution, Important Factors to Consider when Acquiring a Raman Spectrum

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.

Webinar: Tackling the Environmental Threat of Microplastics Using Raman Spectroscopy

Dr. Bridget O’Donnell, Manager of Raman Applications for HORIBA Scientific will be presenting this webinar in partnership with Spectroscopy Magazine.

This webcast will describe the use of Raman spectroscopy for the characterization of microplastics and nanoplastics (plastic particulates <5 mm), which threaten the environment and potentially human health. An overview of the process of microplastic characterization will be given including a discussion of collection, extraction, detection, and identification methods, with a view to support future legislation and monitoring of microplastic contamination. The necessary high throughput requirements of microplastics analysis will also be addressed through automation of Raman spectral measurements of large quantities of microplastics.

Spectroscopic Methods for Sunscreens Characterization

This Application Note outlines three different kinds of spectroscopic tools being used for the characterization of sunscreens, and discusses the obtained results. These include Fluorescence spectroscopy for photoactivity, Particle Size analysis for composition and Raman microscopy for formulation investigation.

Nobel Prize of Physics attributed to Arthur Ashkin for invention of optical tweezers!

Did you know you can combine this to your HORIBA Raman microscope! CaptuR is a simple accessory - which can be added to any LabRAM HR system equipped with an open space microscope - allows you to trap micron size particles (such like biological cells, microplastics, minerals), analyze it simultaneously by Raman without downgrading the capabilities of the instrument. Combined with our patented DuoScan, it is even possible to map the cell or particle immobilized in a liquid or gel media.
