Product News: HORIBA Scientific announces enhanced OEM RAMAN spectral engine for reliable process analytical measurements

Affordable Raman engine aims to provide OEM customers with unmatched detection limit

04 Dec 2020


HORIBA Scientific, global leader in OEM Gratings, Miniature spectrometers and Scientific Camera systems and solutions, has announced its new CiCi-Raman engine designed for high volume OEM industrial customers.

The CiCi-Raman-785 is a high performance spectrometer featuring an aberration-corrected concave holographic grating configured with HORIBA Scientific's deep-cooled Syncerity™ CCD camera with a new VIS-NIR detector, and a round-to-slit fiber converter for high efficiency collection from a Raman  probe. A 532nm spectrometer design also exists and is optimized for Semiconductor process applications, with the same deep-cooled camera and its new high Quantum Efficiency sensor.

The CiCi-Raman is unique in several ways. Its improved deep cooled camera features a new CCD sensor with QE of 90% at 650nm and 70% at 900nm, with 2048 pixels and 1mm collection height. While most existing OEM Raman modules feature limited cooling capability from 0o C to -15o C, HORIBA’s camera is cooled at -50o C or lower as needed, but remains a low cost and compact system.  

It offers an ultra-stable opto-mechanical platform: a one-time long-term factory wavelength calibration is sufficient. CiCi-Raman-785 is fiber-coupled for convenient integration in Raman Process solutions, offering several configurations. A 532 nm version is also available.

This new Raman system is ideal for OEM applications in Process Control, Biomedical and Life Sciences, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics, Forensics and Security, Semiconductors and Foods and Beverage Safety.

“As new approaches to pharmaceutical manufacturing, bioprocessing and semiconductor Fabs evolve, Raman spectroscopy has increasingly become integrated into process analytical technology,” said  Nicolas Vezard, Vice President of HORIBA’s OEM Gratings, Spectrometers and Scientific Cameras Division. “HORIBA’s long-standing expertise in Raman has enabled us to develop and design instrumentation that can seamlessly address these requirements, yet remain competitively priced.”
