Raman Spectroscopy

  • Dispersive confocal Raman microscope, Renishaw inVia Reflex with 4 laser lines (488, 514, 633 and 785 nm). Spectral range 100- 4000 cm-1 (depending on excitation line), resolution ~1.0 cm-1 (depending on excitation line), NExT filter (488, 514, 633 nm) for work in the range ~15-500 cm-1.
  • Dispersive Raman spectrometer coupled to a microscope Jobin Yvon HG 2S.

  • FT-Raman spectrometer Bruker, RFS 100 equipped with the Nd-YAG laser 1064 nm NIR line.


Personal computers, spectroscopic software and a multitude of accessories, such as high and low temperature cells, high pressure cell, support the above instruments.
