opens up exciting new capabilities for researchers and manufacturers in the
UK and Ireland with the introduction of two products from CRAIC
Technologies of San Dimas, California.
Controlled Heating and Cooling of Microspectrophotometer Samples
The CRAIC Technologies Thermal Stage package, depending upon its configuration,
enables a scientist to analyze the transmission, reflectance or fluorescence
spectra of microscopic samples under conditions of extreme cold or heat.
in the UV-visible-NIR regions, samples can be cooled to as low as -196°
or heated up to as high as 600 °C. The same system also allows for atmospheric
control of the sample environment: a feature that will open up additional avenues
of research in many fields such as biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology
Microspectrophotometry of OLEDs
With Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) increasing their share of the displays
and light source market, CRAIC Technologies are introducing the QDI 302 microscope
spectrophotometer to measure and compare the spectral output, intensity and
colour consistency of each of the microscopic pixels commonly found in OLED
The QDI 302 is a spectrophotometer that is designed to be attached to a microscope
or probe station. It allows the user to rapidly acquire images and spectra of
microscopic sample areas. The QDI 302 can be used to measure the colour and
intensity of each pixel of a OLED display, comparing them or mapping the intensity
and colour of the whole device. The speed of the QDI 302 allows for entire OLED
displays to be examined quickly and accurately.
This will ensure the consistency of both colour and intensity across the entire
device as well as from device to device.
