Product News: Kinetic Microspectroscopy for UV-visible-NIR

11 Jan 2012

CRAIC Technologies has announced the addition of kinetic spectroscopy capabilities to its flagship product: the 20/20 Perfect Vision™ UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer. With the kinetic spectroscopy package, this system is able to monitor the full range spectra of a microscopic sample area over time and plot the results. Analysis of samples can be done by absorbance, reflectance and even optical emission from the deep UV too far into the near infrared spectral regions.

Applications include biological time resolved analysis to measuring the degradation of LED's over time, chemical reactions on metallic films and much more. The ability to analyze the time resolved spectra of microscopic sample areas with multiple spectroscopic techniques makes the kinetic package for the 20/20 Perfect Vision™ an ideal micro-analysis tool for any laboratory or manufacturing facility.

“CRAIC Technologies has long been an innovator in the field of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis. We have helped to advance the field of microscale analysis by constantly developing new instrumentation and software as well as with research and teaching. Adding kinetics and time-resolved microspectroscopy capabilities to the 20/20™ microspectrophotometer makes it the ideal tool for a laboratory or factory due its unique capabilities, high spatial resolution and sensitivity” states Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies. “CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometers are backed by years of experience in designing, building and the use of this type of instrumentation for many types of microspectroscopic analysis.”

The kinetic microspectroscopy feature allows the creation of three dimensional maps in which X and Y are the spectrum and Z is the time domain.
