ISI begins two new studies to Improve Raman spectrometers

Raman spectrometers have become an increasingly popular tool in recent years to identify substances in the field.  However one constant restriction of the technique is the potential for contaminate fluorescence to mask the Raman return.  ISI has now begun two investigations of different techniques to remove this response, using our HES spectrometers.  This includes examining the spectral and temporal nature of both [...]

HES 2000 Spectrometer Compared to Czerny Turner Instrument

In recent years spatially offset and transmission Raman measurements have gained popularity in a variety of sectors, including the pharmaceutical and forensics industries. The key advantage of transmission Raman in particular is that it provides a bulk measurement of the sample and is therefore resistant to false returns The HES2000 spectrometer offered by ISI can capture the light from a [...]
