Map the spectral response across a sample surface with high definition

Spectral Surface Mapping

Introduction

CRAIC Technologies™ Spectral Surface Mapping™ technology allows you to obtain highly detailed maps of the spectral response of objects on the microscopic scale.  Featuring sub-micron spatial resolution, maps can be generated with thousands of points of the UV-visible-NIR transmission, absorbance, reflectance, polarization, fluorescence and emission spectral response.  Spectral Surface Mapping™ of even the Raman spectral variation across a sample may be obtained. 

Running under Windows 7™, Spectral Surface Mapping™, also called S2M™, is a feature available for any of the Perfect Vision™ and Apollo™ series of microspectrometers.  S2M™ both moves the sample and controls the microspectrometer to obtain spectra from a surface.  This data is then displayed in a 3D map with the X and Y axes representing the surface of the sample and the Y axis a wavelength of the type of data to be mapped.  As shown above, the transmission spectral response at 550 nm of an LCD panel is mapped with a spatial detail with hundreds of points.

Microspectrophotometer Reflectance Standards

CRAIC Technologies Microspectrometer Standards
Traceable UV-visible-NIR reflectance standards designed for microspectrophotometers
 

CRAIC Technologies™ Reflectance Microspectrometer Standards are calibrated using Standard Reference Materials from NIST and other internationally recognized standards bodies.  CRAIC Reflectance Standards are specifically designed for use with your UV-visible-NIR microspectrometer. All of our standards were developed to meet ASTM, ISO, ENFSI and SWGMAT criteria. Standards are available for wavelength and photometric calibration.

CRAIC calibrated Microspectrometer Standards are used with CRAIC microspectrophotometer systems as part of the automatic verification and validation process. These standards are simple to use as well as being traceable to internationally recognized Standard Reference Materials.

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

Quartz wellslides 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 wellslides. The red line represents the optical grade quartz used by CRAIC Technologies in their quartz wellslides.  The amount of UV transmitted is over 85% down to 200 nm.
