Horiba LabRAM Evolution HR Raman Spectrometer

Confocal Raman Microscope

Home / Equipment and Facilities / Confocal Raman Microscope

Raman Spectroscopy can offer a powerful non-destructive and non-contact method to analyse the chemical composition and molecular structure of a material. The technique involves illuminating a sample with a monochromatic light source, such as a laser. Light that is scattered has a different colour to the light source and can be analysed using a highly sensitive spectrometer. Coupling of a confocal microscope to a Raman spectrometer enables surfaces to be mapped with high spatial resolution, giving an image of the uniformity (homogeneity) of the material.
