RMP-210 Raman Spectrometer

In this brief application Raman analysis of injection molding was made using the RMP-210 a ‘field-rugged’ Raman Spectrometer consisting of a probe head and monochromator, which are connected by optical fibers. Since the system does not require external cooling, it is portable and allows measurements in almost any location. The probe head is extremely flexible, making remote measurements convenient as the analysis probe can be brought directly to the sample. A CCD camera located in the probe head enables the user to view the targeted sample image.
