Analytical Spectroscopy Laboratory


Available Equipment


Renishaw Smiths Combined Raman/IR Microprobe

075 CBEC

This permits recording of mid-IR and Raman spectra on exactly the same spot using the same instrument system.  IR and Raman spectral maps can also be recorded on exactly the same area.  Temperature controlled sample cells will permit temperatures to range from 100K to 1500ºC.
