MCF is extending its Raman and PL capabilities to Deep UV with a new stand alone Renishaw system

  • Extremely high efficiency 250 mm focal length inVia Reflex spectrograph
  • Stand alone Renishaw Raman unit with solid-state Deep-UV laser (266 nm) and components
  • UV optics for high temperature and high power electronics.
  • Capability for Raman and PL spectroscopy from 200 nm – 1700 nm with automated mapping.
  • Andor InGaAs detector.
  • Ability to measure spectra of photonic materials deep into the UV range (e.g. AlxGa1-xN with up to 75% Al) including materials of Ultra-Wide Bandgap Initiatives.
  • Confocal Raman measurements with different Bright Field objective options
  • Different Grating options include 600 l/mm (NIR) & 3600 I/mm(UV)
