Map the spectral response across a sample surface with high spatial resolution

Spectral Surface Mapping

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 11™, 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.
