Colloidal Materials Research
Microspectrophotometers are used to analyze colloids and colloidal materials by imaging and spectroscopy
A colloid is a substance that is evenly dispersed on the microscopic scale throughout another substance. Colloidal substances have many different applications ranging from pharmaceuticals to Raman spectral enhancement materials. Colloids can either be naturally derived or created by such processes as high shear techniques. Due to their unique nature, they have many useful and interesting properties.
Due to the microscopic scales of colloids and colloidal solutions, microspectrophotometers are the perfect tool. Able to analyze micro-scale samples by absorbance, reflectance or even fluorescence, these tools are easy-to-use and very accurate. Their flexibility and accuracy make them very importance for analyzing everything from the optical effects of butterfly wings to protein crystals.
