RFT-8X FT-Raman Spectrometer

FT Raman is used for fast, non-destructive analysis of many sample types. It is used together with the FT/IR-8X FTIR spectrometer.

The FT-Raman add on to the FT/IR-8X spectrometer offers the choice of performing analysis using infrared absorption or Raman spectroscopy in the same instrument. As the Raman measurement is made using an external accessory, switching between measurements is extremely simple. The RFT-8X can be used for both macro- and microscopic sample measurements.

A 1064nm near-infrared excitation laser can be used with higher power without sample photo degradation. Fourier Transform spectroscopy coupled with multiple spectral accumulation compensates for low sensitivity inherent to weak Raman signals. Gold coated optics in the FT/IR-8X further enhances the sensitivity of the RFT-8X.
