Renishaw inVia Raman Spectrometer
Raman spectroscopy is based on the interaction of monochromatized light with matter and provides insights into the mean local structure of compounds, defects, and crystallization processes.
The inVia Raman spectrometer (Renishaw GmbH, Pliezhausen, Germany) is equipped with two lasers with wavelengths of 785 and 532 nm. The tunability of the laser intensity allows the investigation of laser-sensitive materials. Optics specially matched to the lasers and the CCD area detector ensures high spectral resolution.
Two measuring cells are available for in situ measurements. They allow the investigation of structure-property relationships as a function of temperature and the performance of solid-gas reaction reactions. For in situ measurements, the instrument can be equipped with either the THMS 600 cell, allowing measurements in the temperature range between -196°C zo 600°C or the CCR1000 catalytic cell reactor, which covers a temperature range from 25°C to 1000°C in different gas atmospheres.
