Elliot Scientific is now offering the new 20/30 PV Series UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometer from CRAIC Technologies to scientists in the UK and Ireland. The microspectrophotometer can be used for non-destructive rapid analysis of many types of sub-micron or larger samples from the deep ultraviolet to the near infrared. The multiple techniques available include absorbance, reflectance, Raman, luminescence and fluorescence, among others. The microspectrophotometer retains the ease-of-use for which CRAIC instruments are known and represents a further step forward in UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy. Touch screen controls, sophisticated software, calibrated variable apertures and other innovations all point to a new level of sophistication in microanalysis, and while microspectra are being acquired, the sample may be simultaneously viewed in the deep UV and NIR with the high-resolution digital imaging system or in the visible through the research grade eyepiece optics. Images and time-resolved spectral data are acquired and recorded in one rapid, seamless operation from across the instrument's extended spectral range. The microspectrophotometer's analytical capabilities are useful in many fields of research, and some of the possible applications for it include: OLEDs and flat panel color masks, thin film metrology, MEMS devices, forensic analysis, photovoltaic cell characterisation, surface plasmon resonance, photonic bandgap crystals, process impurity detection, protein crystal measurement, combinatorial chemistry, kinetic spectroscopy and mineral analysis.
