High temperature Raman measurement

Posted by Timegate on 3.9.2018 13:00

Raman spectroscopy is widely used in process monitoring, though fluorescence emission causes some challenges by covering the Raman signal. PicoRaman, the Timegated® Raman spectrometer, can tackle this challenge and it offers an easy way for real fluorescence suppression.

Apart from the fluorescence suppression, Timegated® Raman can also be used with high temperature samples as thermal emission does not cover the weak Raman signal. In addition to that, measurements can be performed in alight surroundings as ambient light does not interfere the measurement. This provides wider application and operation areas for R&D in catalysis and combustion research. Commercial applications in the chemical and mining industries can also benefit from this new innovation.
