RIMA NANO™ - Hyperspectral Raman Imager from Photon etc

The latest innovation of Photon etc, the RIMA NANO™ Raman hyperspectral imaging system is the fastest micro-imaging system for nanomaterial analysis from graphene to carbon nanotubes. It offers speed as well as an excellent imaging quality at various excitation wavelengths.

Key Features

The key features of the RIMA NANO™ are:

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


The applications of RIMA NANO™ Raman hyperspectral imager are in:

  • Si/Ti Wafer Maps: The RIMA NANO™ 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.

  • Carbon Nanotubes: Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool for the non-destructive study of material properties. Stokes and anti-Stokes spectra of SWCNT powder were measured in less than an hour.
