PHOTON ETC. PRÉSENTE RIMA™, L'IMAGEUR HYPERSEPCTRAL RAMAN LE PLUS RAPIDE AU MONDE
Montreal, QC – Photon etc. is proud to announce the release of RIMA™, the only system that generates Raman megapixels images in minutes, ensuring sample integrity with low illumination power density. Rapidity and sample protection: a combination that is a paradigm change in Raman hyperspectral imaging.
Based on Photon etc.’s tunable filter, this product is the latest advance in global imaging and provides widefield Raman images faster than any other technology: a Raman image of structured Si/Ti wafer was obtain with 100,000 spectra in less than a minute. RIMA™ features filtering efficiency up to 80% (unpolarized), and provides both high spectral and spatial resolution for the most demanding applications.
RIMA™ is a unique system that gives access to high precision maps of molecular vibrations for different types of samples or probes. This unique imaging system can be continuously tuned over a 5000 cm-1 window with a spectral resolution as good as 4 cm-1, giving access to both Stokes and anti-Stokes transitions.
Photon etc. offers complete systems with a wide range of high-end cameras, microscopes and lasers. PHySpec™, Photon etc’s proprietary control and analysis software, allows the smoothest guidance in acquisition for the complete instrument. In line with Photon etc’s commitment to innovation and research, various customization possibilities are available such as multiple excitation wavelengths and tuning windows.
“We are thrilled to launch this product on the market”, says Marc Verhaegen, CTO. “It is the highest efficiency Raman imaging system currently available, it is easy to use and accessible to any kind of end user. With this instrument, weak Raman diffusion is mapped in a fraction of the time usually required. RIMA™ will definitely redefine the standards in Raman spectroscopy imaging”.
