HORIBA LabRAM HR Evolution Confocal RAMAN

  • Horiba
LabRam system offers advanced confocal imaging capabilities in 2D and 3D. The system will be equipped with Multi-laser capability from UV to near IR, direct laser coupling and automated laser switching. The system is fully automated with motorized stage controls and alignment capabilities. Some of the unique features of the system are: (1) True confocal microscope that can provide high spatial resolution, automated mapping stages and full microscope visualization options. (2) High performance Raman spectrometer that can provide ultimate spectral resolution performance, multiple gratings with automated switching, wide spectral range analysis for Raman and PL and full system automation. We are acquiring multiple high performance detectors. (3) Multiple detectors for extended spectral range and specialized applications. (4) Ultrafast Raman imaging with SWIFT and DuoScan technologies: The DuoScan imaging technology is a confocal imaging mode, with high precision ultra-fast rastering mirrors creating variable sized laser macro-spots and also allow nano-step mapping from deep UV to NIR. The SWIFT module couples with LabRAM high optical throughput with optimized detector-stage coordination to make ultra-fast confocal Raman mapping a reality. High resolution images with this system are acquired in seconds. (5) Electron multiplying CCD which uses new technology to enhance the S/N in measurements where extremely low signals are present and hence shorter measurement times. The system comes with full automation and powerful software control.

Facilities Hosting This Item

SPID was created to drive interdisciplinary research bridging the gap between hard nanostructures, soft materials, biological sciences, quantitative mechanical and electrical analysis and nanopatterning. SPID provides a wide range of imaging instrumentation and support facilities for atomic to molecular imaging. It supports a broad range of nanoscale science and technology characterization needs at nanoscale by providing state-of-the-art resources coupled with expert staff. Research at SPID encompasses physical and chemical sciences, engineering and life sciences, and has a strong inter-disciplinary emphasis. Every week, several new users coming from NU campuses, academia, industry, and government laboratories learn to use tools available in the center to carry out their research projects.

The primary focus of SPID is to provide both quantitative and qualitative scanning probe microscopy and biomaterials nanopatterning based highly advanced instrumentations to enable materials, nanopatterning and biomedical research by a diverse group of scientists, industries and clinicians representing numerous disciplines. SPID works in partnership with several industrial partners and specifically Bruker Metrology Surface Division to develop advanced instrumentation for quantitative analysis. SPID serves as a hub for numerous global partnerships both in terms of facility development and research.
