Introduction


CRAIC Technologies™ has developed the CRAIC FiberPro™ package to automatically map structures such as hairs, fibers, fiber optics and similar configurations. The package combines hardware and software to enable you to automatically and rapidly map the spectral characteristics of fiber-like structures on the microscopic scale.

CRAIC FiberPro™ is designed to be fully integrated with the CRAIC microspectrophotometer series and acts seamlessly to measure the spectral characteristics of fiber-like structures by absorbance or fluorescence relative to the length of the fiber. CRAIC FiberPro™ is simple to use, very fast and results in spectral maps of the hair or fiber. It allows you to analyze individual spectra as well as map changes down the length of the sample. Colorimetric analysis can also be done when combined with the CRAIC ColorPro™ software.

Quartz Slides & Quartz Coverslips from CRAIC Technologies™

CRAIC Technologies quartz slides, quartz wellslides and quartz coverslips are spectral grade and manufactured to the highest levels of quality.

Quartz slides and quartz coverslips are commonly used in UV-visible microspectroscopy and microscopy.  This is because common glass slides and coverslips absorb UV light resulting in very little transmission below 340 nm.  Quartz, on the other hand, transmits UV light with much greater efficiencies.

However, all quartz is not equal.  As with anything, there are various grades and specifications.  The most common quartz slides and coverslips use lower grade materials as they are not designed for deep UV microspectroscopy or microscopy.  However, a spectroscopist needs all the UV light they can get... especially in the deep ultraviolet region where many materials exhibit some very unique features.

To the left is the transmittance spectra of CRAIC spectral grade quartz and quartz commonly used in microscope slides and coverslips.  The purple line represents the type of quartz that is most commonly used to manufacture quartz slides and quartz coverslips.  As is obvious, there is a dramatic drop in UV transmission of this material below 265 nm.  This is one of the reasons so many scientists have difficulty with UV microspectroscopy between 200 to 265 nm when not using CRAIC quartz slides. The red line represents the optical grade quartz used by CRAIC Technologies in their quartz slides and quartz coverslips.  The amount of UV transmitted is over 85% down to 200 nm.
