Raman Imaging Sensor Enables UV Analysis in Stand-Off Detection and In-line Processing Applications

Fitchburg, MA - To further enhance the ability to detect explosives and other chemical threats, Headwall Photonics announced the availability of new models of the Raman Explorer platform for use in the UV spectral region. Available for laser excitation as low as 248 nanometers, the Raman Explorer extends the current analytical ability of customers in the defense and homeland security sectors through the availability of high UV spectral performance coupled with a small form factor for field-based deployment.

For commercial applications, particularly in-line process analysis in areas such as food quality, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and semiconductor processing, the UV Raman Explorer enables the opportunity to utilize new techniques such as Raman line-scan analysis and spatially-offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS).

"The Raman Explorer platform is a high performance Raman imaging instrument designed for precision measurements and material identification" stated David Bannon, CEO of Headwall Photonics. "Built for reliability and designed for mineral exploration on Mars, the Raman Explorer instrument has also been deployed to the depths of the ocean - this is a product designed for imaging in harsh environments".

The Raman Explorer is a reflective, dispersive instrument and can be configured as a multi-channel spectrometer. The instrument is available with a range of laser excitation wavelengths:

o Raman Explorer 248 for 248 nm laser excitation

o Raman Explorer 785 for 785 nm laser excitation

o Raman Explorer 532 for 532 nm laser excitation

o Raman Explorer 532/685 nm for dual laser excitation

o Raman Explorer 830 for 830nm laser excitation

o Raman Explorer 1064 for 1064nm laser excitation

As a portable or handheld Raman device, Headwall has also introduced the Raman Discovery sensor.
