Introduction

The innovative 20/30 XL™ microspectrophotometer is designed to allow you to acquire spectra, images, and film thickness measurements of microscopic features of large scale samples.  "XL" stands for "extra large" and these are the types of samples for which this instrument was built.  Built to meet your needs, the bespoke 20/30 XL™ incorporates the latest technological advances in optics, spectroscopy and software to deliver the superior performance with unparalleled speed and capabilities. The ease-of-use for which CRAIC instruments are known has even been improved, making this instrument the cutting edge of UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy.

The 20/30 XL™ microspectrophotometer allows you to measure UV-visible-NIR range transmission, absorbance, reflectance, emission and fluorescence spectra of features smaller than a micron across.  Yet, depending upon the instrument configuration, the size of the sample can essentially be unlimited.  Now you can map color varations within pixels of the biggest flat panel displays, measure film thickness of 300 mm wafers with ease or measure the fluorescence of the largest artworks.

Raman microspectroscopy, high resolution UV microscopy and even NIR microscopy are also offered.

The 20/30 XL™ microspectrophotometer is simple to use, the measurements are non-destructive and the spectral data is unmatched.

The 20/30 XL™ Microspectrometer can take spectra and images of microscopic samples from the deep ultraviolet to near infrared with one seamless operation. It can acquire microspectra and images in absorbance, reflectance, and fluorescence. The microspectrometer is offered with both the DirecVu™ to view samples by eye as well as with a high resolution UV-visible-NIR digital imaging system.

Add photometry and imaging to your microscope

The CRAIC MP-2™ Microscope Photometer is designed to add photometry and imaging to your optical microscope.  Actually, the CRAIC MP-2™ is better described as a microscope radiometer in that it has a spectral range from the deep UV to the near infrared.  It is limited only by the microscope itself. 

The CRAIC MP-2™ microphotometer attaches to your microscope and enables you to collect transmission, reflectance or even fluorescence and luminescence photometric data of microscopic samples. The solid state detectors have dynamic ranges and sensitivities greater than PMTs or imaging systems.  With complete software control, either broad- or narrow-band photometric intensity measurements can be made.  Additionally, with the use of CRAIC reference materials, precise photometric intensities can be recorded relative to the reference material.  With the CRAIC MP-2™ microphotometer, high quality photometry of even sub-micron samples can be done quickly, non-destructively and easily.

Organic petrographic analysis measuring vitrinite reflectance

The CoalPro III™ Optical Petrography System from CRAIC Technologies is a microphotometer designed for the organic petrographic analysis using Standard Test Methodologies ISO 7404-5 and ASTM D2798. This microphotometer is configured to measure the reflectance from coals, kerogens and petroleum source rock. However, it also has a very flexible design. The CoalPro III™ was developed anticipating the next generation of test protocols as well as for fluorescence and micro-imaging.

Incorporating a new optical detector and CRAIC CoalPro™ software, the CoalPro III™ system grades the energy content of coals, kerogens and petroleum source rock using the ISO 7404 and ASTM D2798 standard test methods.  It also gives you the ability to collect full color images of each measurement location in addition to full automation if desired.

However, the CoalPro III™ can also be upgraded to a full 508 Coal™ microscope spectrophotometer to measure the full reflectance spectrum and the spectral fluorescence from coal, kerogen, petroleum source rock and other petrochemicals.

With no moving parts, the CoalPro III™ is durable and user friendly. Designed with flexibility and speed in mind, the  CoalPro III™ system rapidly measures vitrinite reflectivity and also has the ability to do other types of spectroscopic and petrographic analysis and imaging. With this flexibility of design, it will easily comply with future changes in coal testing methods and your own experiments.
