One solution for avoiding the influence of troublesome Raman fluorescence is to use shorter wavelengths such as 405nm. Likewise, the natural Raman signal increase with the scattering dependence of 1/λ4 make Raman spectroscopy at this wavelength favorable.
StellarNet offers a variety of high performance spectrometers configured for 405nm Raman spectroscopy applications that perform quick identification of a variety of liquid, solid, or powder samples.
Raman-HR-TEC-405 Spectrometers are our most popular Raman spectrometers and include an enhanced CCD array detector tuned for 405nm Raman with advanced detector lens assembly for ultra sensitivity at long exposure times.
Raman-HR-TEC-X2-405 Spectrometers offers 2-stage detector cooling for ultimate sensitivity and performance! Great for long exposures up to 8 minutes.
Raman-ER-TEC-405 Spectrometers are chose for extended wavenumber shifts.
Interchangeable Slits Upgrades are available for “HR” optical benches to allow more application flexibility. High Scattering samples can be measured with the smallest slit for highest resolution and weak Raman can be measure with a larger slit to allow for increased light throughput.
Raman-SR spectrometers are typically recommended for OEM and portable applications where the specific sample set is known and works well without detector cooling.
