The highly efficient optical design provides the best Raman data, from minute traces of material and large volumes. Measurements such as the follwoing can be performed:
- time series: monitor how a sample is altering with time
- temperature ramps: use a hot/cold cell to see phase changes
- line scans: profile a sample, both across the surface, or into its depth
- area mapping: generate images, either horizontally at fixed focus, following the surface topography, or from vertical slices
- volume scans: produce 3D views of a transparent sample's internal structure
- transmission mapping: analyse large volumes of material and produce depth-averaged 2D images of bulk material homogeneity
- specialist measurements: trigger data collection from peripheral equipment (such as a control system on a synchrotron beamline)
Flexibility adaptable to specific experimental requirements
The Renishaw inVia can be tuned to best suit research and experimental needs. The facilities offer a modest range of lasers, and a wide range of optical components and accessories.
The Renishaw inVia offers flexibility and capability without complexity. Graduate and postgraduate students regularly perform experiments and take measurements, after having succesfully followed a suitable training course. Precision automated assemblies enable inVia to complete common tasks—such as switching laser wavelength, changing diffraction grating, and acquiring a Raman image—rapidly, simply, reliably, and without the need for manual intervention. This is essential for busy laboratories with multiple users.
Concentrate on the science, not adjusting the instrument.
