PerkinElmer Introduces Raman Polarization Accessory
PerkinElmer today introduced the Raman Polarization accessory for use with its RamanStation 400 spectrometer. The accessory features a high-quality video camera with a built-in adjustable sample illumination source, which is essential for accurate sample positioning and alignment.
The Raman Polarization accessory's optical head can easily be positioned for analysis of a vast array of samples. It rotates downward for working with samples on microscope slides and with pieces of fabric or plastic, and can be clicked into the horizontal position for analysis of samples in cuvettes, capillary tubes and vials. For standard Raman spectral acquisition, the polarizers can be removed.
Polarized Raman measurements are most often used to understand the orientation of molecules in organized environments such as crystal lattices, liquid crystals and polymer samples. However, the measurements can also yield valuable spectral information about molecular structure of samples in fields such as synthetic chemistry or polymorph analysis.
