RAMAN Microscope


The general aim of Raman spectroscopy is to analyze the Raman scattered light and infer from it as much as possible about the chemistry and structure of the samples. The micro-Raman spectroscopy System at Barcelona Research Center in Multiscale Science and Engineering can handle a wide range of sample types, sample sizes and resolution requirements. Renishaw’s inVia Qontor Raman microscope and its Windows-based Raman Environment (Wire™) software are powerful for manual measurements of points on the samples, mapping and imaging capabilities.
