Raman spectroscopy is a non-destructive analysis technique that can be used to identify chemical bonding and molecular symmetry. Raman spectroscopy works by illuminating a sample with monochromatic light, often a laser, and analyzing the shift of the incident light. For investigation of small areas, the laser can be passed through an optical microscope, thus reducing the sample area. This technique is generally referred to as micro-Raman.
Raman spectroscopy can be used to identify the phases and stresses present in carbon compounds. Semiconductors can be characterized for dopant levels or contamination. Raman spectroscopy can also be used to identify polymer compounds.
For Raman spectroscopy, Diarkis utilizes an automated Horiba Jobin Yvon LabRam ARAMIS Raman microscope. No sample preparation is required prior to analysis. Samples up to four inches in diameter and one inch tall can be accommodated in the Raman spectrometer.
