Typical test spectra

 

 

Graphene and its optical effects can be studied with a microspectrophotometer.

Graphene is a 2-dimensional form of carbon organized in one-atom thick layers. In graphene, carbon atoms are densely packed in a regular hexagonal pattern. Mathematically, it may be treated as an infinitely large aromatic molecule and thus can yield some novel electronic effects due to this electronic and unique physical structure.  Due graphene's novel physical characteristics, including its interactions with other materials, mean that graphene has the potential to form the basis for many new applications and devices.

Mapping the spectral characteristics of graphene with microscopic spatial resolution is easily done with microspectrophotometers.  Microspectrophotometers are also useful when only microscopic amounts of novel graphene materials are available for analysis.   And because graphene is considered a zero-gap semiconductor, it will see use in new electronic devices....items well suited for analysis with microspectrophotometers.  With such devices, microspectrophotometers can yield information of the thickness of thin films of graphene, the optical and electronic attributes, as well as the vibration characteristics by Raman microspectroscopy.

Emission Spectra Measured with a Spectral Microscope

Spectral Microscopy is used to measure the spectra of microscopic samples.

Spectral Microscopy uses an instrument designed to measure UV-visible-NIR and Raman spectra of microscopic samples or microscopic areas of larger objects.  There are two basic types: the fully integrated microspectrophotometer (as shown) that has been built and optimized for microspectrophotometry.  There is also the spectrophotometer designed to attach to an open photoport of an optical microscope.   Each has its strengths and depending upon the configuration, both are capable of measuring the spectra of microscopic samples by transmission, absorbance, reflectance, fluorescence, emission, Raman and polarization spectrophotometry.   With special software, both are capable of thin film thickness measurements and micro-colorimetry as well.

A CRAIC Technologies™ spectral microscope is a purpose-built system that allows UV-visible-NIR range micro spectrophotometry both non-destructively and with no sample contact.  Capable of analyzing even sub-micron areas, they are also capable of high resolution digital imaging.  Designed for ease-of-use, they are durable instruments designed for spectral microscopy.

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.
