Dispersive Raman spectrometer

Brand: Bruker Senterra Raman Microscope Spectrometer with Extended Range Z-axis

Software: Opus 7.x

Capabilities: The spectrometer is equipped with three lasers: 785 nm, 633 nm and 532 nm excitation wavelengths. The unit has a removable, motorized x-y stage. The stage can be replaced by a larger (12” x 12” manual stage) to support smaller objects from Yale’s collections and the stage can be removed entirely to accommodate larger objects under the objectives. Objectives: 10x, 20x, 50x, long working distance objectives: 50x and 100x.

Practical use: Raman spectroscopy is a non-destructive analytical technique that can be performed on micro-sized samples removed from artifacts or in-situ on the artifact surface. It is a very important tool for inorganic and organic pigment identification. It is also used for the characterization of crystalline materials in general, polymers, glasses, etc.
