Introduction

CRAIC Technologies™ manufactures scientific instruments ranging from its premier UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer to UV, visible, NIR and SWIR microscopes to a robust Raman microspectrometer, as well as a host of accessories. These instruments are used for many diverse fields of research and industry. We have designed our systems to be flexible so we can combine different packages to give you the perfect solution and cutting-edge results.
Below is a small sample of applications that currently utilize our microspectrophotometer, microscopes and Raman microspectrometer. Instruments can be configured based upon the types of analysis you need to perform. Because of their inherent flexibility, the possibilities are endless when using a CRAIC UV-Visible-NIR microspectrophotometer, microscope, and Raman microspectrometer.

UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometer

The microspectrophotometer is designed to measure the absorbance, reflectance, fluorescence and emission spectra of microscopic samples in the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared.

Microphotometer

 CRAIC Technologies microscope photometer systems operate in the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared. 

The microscope photometer measure the intensity of light from a microscopic sample.  This light may either be reflected from the sample, transmitted through the sample or emitted from the sample by such processes as electroluminescence or fluorescence.

UV Microscope

The

UV microscope

is designed to image microscopic sample features by

absorbance

, reflectance, fluorescence and emission in the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared. While the usable spectral range of this microscope covers the UV, visible and near infrared regions, their optics and light sources are optimized so that they are more effective in the UV region. As such, there are many uses for UV microscopes as they can non-destructively image microscopic samples in regions other than the visible.

NIR Microscope

  The NIR

microscope, also call a 

SWIR microscope, is designed to image microscopic sample features by

absorbance

, reflectance, fluorescence and emission in the visible, near infrared and shortwave infrared regions.  The

NIR

microscope is designed to image in regions beyond the visible range. While the usable spectral range of this microscope covers the ultraviolet, visible and

NIR

regions, their optics and light sources are optimized so that they are more effective in the

NIR

region. As such, there are many uses for

NIR

microscopes as they can non-destructively image microscopic samples in regions other than the visible.

Raman Microspectrometer

The Raman microspectrometer is designed to measure the Raman spectrum of microscopic samples with a number of different exciting wavelengths. 

Raman spectroscopy is used to identify different molecules and even functional groups within larger molecules. The bonds formed between atoms have specific vibrational frequencies that correspond to the atom's masses and the strength of the bond between them. Complex molecules therefore exhibit many peaks and can be readily identified by the pattern or "fingerprint" created by those peaks. As such, there are many uses for micro Raman spectrometers as they can non-destructively identify microscopic samples or microscopic areas of larger samples.
