Ocean Optics IDRaman mini 2.0 Handheld Raman System

IDRaman mini 2.0 960x960

Identify. Authenticate. Verify.

The Ocean Optics IDRaman mini is the smallest, most powerful handheld Raman system available today. The IDRaman mini fits in the palm of your hand, yet is ruggedly dependable for fast, accurate Raman analyses ranging from chemical and explosive agent detection in the field to quality assurance and quality control sampling routines in the factory. The system includes a preloaded, editable library of about 30 Raman spectra and large libraries of up to 9,000 spectra are available for purchase.

The IDRaman’s  unique Raster Orbital Scanning (ROS) technology scans a tightly focused beam over a wide 2.5 mm sample area, dramatically improving the quality of the Raman measurement. ROS has benefits for liquid and solid samples, especially samples that are inhomogeneous and irregularly shaped. In addition, with ROS the low average power needed eliminates sample damage and the possible ignition of explosive samples.

Becker and Hickl Introduce Ultra-Fast Hybrid Detector

hpm photo 01 comp20

Becker and Hickl have released an ultra-fast version of their HPM-100 series hybrid detectors. The new HPM-100-07 detector has an IRF width of less than 38 ps, full width at half maximum, including the pulse width of a bh BDS-SM-405nm ps diode laser. The HPM-100-07 contains a Hamamatsu R10467-07 hybrid detector tube together with a preamplifier and the generators for the tube operating voltages in a single compact housing. The principle of the hybrid detector yields excellent timing resolution, a clean TCSPC instrument response function, high detection quantum efficiency, and extremely low afterpulsing probability. The absence of afterpulsing results in a substantially increased dynamic range of TCSPC measurements.

Gentec-EO release new Pronto 250 Plus Laser Power Detector

  • Pocket-Size: This mid to high power handheld probe is so compact it fits in your pocket!
  • Easy-to-Use: The touch screen color LCD allows for a friendly user interface. You can make a measurement with just the touch of a button!
  • User Setable: You can set the wavelength, brightness and screen orientation to adapt to your application
  • Data Logging: Save your data to the internal memory and then transfer it to your PC over the USB connection.
  • From Low to High Powers: Thanks to a low noise level and high damage threshold, the Pronto can measure powers from 1 W to 250 W
  • Fully Calibrated: The Pronto-250 comes fully calibrated: every wavelength between 248 nm and 2.5 micron (YAG), and a real calibration at 10.6 micron (CO2). The Pronto-250-PLUS has all these calibrations and is also calibrated for Energy measurements.
  • Hands-Free Operation: Place it on a flat surface or use one of the 2 threaded holes that we have integrated in the casing for safe use with optical stands.

Ocean Optics DynaCup Rotating Sample Stage

DynaCup Image 960x960

The Ocean Optics DynaCup is a dynamic sampling device for presenting samples to a reflectance probe. Samples are placed on a rotating plinth, which is spun beneath the measurement probe and allows the probe to scan multiple areas over the sample, over multiple acquisitions. When the acquisitions are averaged, the result is a more repeatable and representative spectrum of your sample.

The DynaCup is particularly important for measuring reflectance of non-homogeneous samples such as grain, where irregular grain shapes cause signal to vary and the distribution of key sample parameters (e.g., moisture, protein and starch) will vary within the individual grain. The power of dynamic sampling can eliminate variation in the measurement, helping measurements be more accurate.
