Raman Spectroscopy of Microscopic Samples

The CRAIC Apollo™ Raman spectrometer is designed for fast, easy micro-Raman spectroscopy. As such, it is perfect for research, metrology and inspection of microscopic sampling areas by Raman spectroscopy.

The CRAIC Apollo™ Raman spectrometer employs optics, software and hardware optimized for Raman spectroscopy of microscopic samples. The CRAIC Apollo™ Raman spectrometer is perfect for rapid, non-destructive analysis in fields such as life sciences, materials science, chemistry and physics.

The CRAIC Apollo™ Raman microspectrometer features a modular design. Each module includes laser excitation, optical interface, Raman spectrometer and software. Modules are offered with different lasers wavelengths and can be used together for the ultimate in experimental flexibility.

With an all solid state design, The CRAIC Apollo™ Raman microspectrometer is able to measure Raman scattering from microscopic samples quickly, easily and non-destructively. This Raman system is durable, easy to use, highly sensitive and economical to own and operate.

What specific issues was the UVM-1™ microscope developed to address?

The Apollo™ was designed to acquire Raman spectra of microscopic samples and sample volumes.  It was developed as a precision instrument and is currently in use in laboratories around the world where it is used for the study and characterization of novel materials.  The Apollo™ is often combined with CRAIC Technologies 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer to add Raman microspectroscopy to the 20/30 PVs™ absorbance, reflectance, fluorescence and polarization capabilities.
