Emission Spectra Measured with a Microspectrometer

 

 

The microspectrometer measures Raman,  UV-visible-NIR absorption, reflectance, and emission spectra of microscopic samples.

The microspectrometer is designed to measure UV-visible-NIR spectra of microscopic samples or microscopic areas of larger objects.  There are two basic types: the fully integrated microspectrometer that has been built and optimized for microspectroscopy and the spectrometer unit designed to attach to an open photoport of an optical microscope.   Depending upon the configuration, both are capable of measuring the spectra of microscopic samples by transmission, absorption, reflectance, fluorescence, emission and polarization microspectroscopy.   With special software, both are capable of 3D mapping measurements and colorimetry as well.

A CRAIC Technologies™ microspectrometer is a purpose-built system that allows you to analyze UV-visible-NIR range microspectra™ 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 microscale spectroscopy.

Adding spectroscopy to your microscope!

Optical microscopes are routinely found in a wide variety of laboratories, but they are often only used as a magnifying glass to allow the user to better see the sample. However, even an inexpensive microscope can be upgraded to do so much more! By sending the light from the microscope to a spectrometer, many different types of spectra can be measured with a much smaller sampling area than is capable with a standard bench-top spectroscopy tool, such as transmission, reflection, fluorescence, and other types of optical emission. Microscope spectrophotometers (or microspectrophotometers/MSP) are designed to measure UV-VIS-NIR spectra of microscopic samples or microscopic areas of larger objects. While a standard spectrophotometer is designed to measure samples on the order of 1 x 1 centimeters, the microspectrophotometer is able to measure samples on the order of 1 x 1 micrometers...much smaller than the thickness of a human hair. The 508 PVTM microscope spectrophotometer is a modular head unit that can be installed on the open phototube port of most upright microscopes to add spectroscopy to your microscope. With CRAIC Technologies products, you can acquire high quality spectra of even sub-micron samples rapidly, non-destructively and with ease.

As shown in the diagram on the right, the MSP head unit can be added to the photoport of a microscope, and the spectrometer measures the light that isis collected by the objective and focused onto the spectrophotometer entrance aperture.  Whether this light is transmitted through the sample, reflected from the sample, or emitted by the sample, that only changes the calculations done on the light intensity measured.

Beyond just measuring UV-VIS-NIR spectra with microscale sampling areas, microscope spectrophotometers are also capable of microspot thin film thickness and colorimetry measurements. When combined with motorized stages, hyperspectral data cubes can even be created with various types of spectra.  Because these instruments are so flexible, MSP's are used in many diverse fields of research and industry.

Emission Spectra Measured with a Microscope Spectrophotometer

 

 

The microscope spectrophotometer measures the UV-visible-NIR, emission and Raman spectra of microscopic samples.

Microscope spectrophotometers are designed to measure UV-visible-NIR 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 spectrophotometry.  There is also the spectrophotometer unit 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 and polarization spectrophotometry.   With special software, both are capable of 3D mapping measurements and colorimetry as well.

A CRAIC Technologies™ microscope spectrophotometer 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 microscale spectroscopy.
