RIMA - Hyperspectral Raman Imager from Photon etc

The latest innovation of Photon etc, the RIMA Raman hyperspectral imaging system is the fastest micro-imaging system for both biological tissue and nanomaterial analysis. It offers speed as well as an excellent imaging quality.

Key Features

The key features of the RIMA Raman Imager are:

  • Stokes and anti-Stokes
  • High spatial and spectral resolution
  • Non-destructive analysis
  • Fast global mapping (non scanning)
  • Complete system (source, microscope, camera, filtre, software)


The applications of RIMA Raman Imager are in:

Si/Ti Wafer Maps: RIMA was tested with a silicon substrate where a titanium pattern has been deposited. A single mode doubled Nd:YAG laser that operates at 532nm and a 100x Olympus microscope objective. The illuminated area has a 80µm diameter. The power density on the sample is 3kW cm-2. A signal is emitted from the Si substrate whereas from the Ti pattern, no light is emitted.

Nanomaterial Analysis: Global Raman imaging is an exceptional technique for the analysis of large surfaces of thin films and advanced materials. Its rapidity makes it a great tool not only for universities and research institutes, but also for industrial laboratories.
