Spectroscopy Applications

Sequentially Timed All-optical Mapping Photography (STAMP) uses a Coherent Astrella to capture video bursts on timescales of ~100 fs to several ns.

This article shows how an ultra-stable femtosecond amplifier enables high data output in 2D IR spectroscopic studies of biological membranes and surfactants.

Benefits of portable Raman

A good portable Raman spectrometer bridges the gap in performance, capability and size between handheld and benchtop Raman spectroscopy.

Image of tablet

Checking the content uniformity of tablets is a crucial step in quality control of these dosage forms—but it is slow and tedious. With IR laser imaging a comprehensive content uniformity is finally possible in less than 10 min.

Diagram of the analysis

First, the LSPR of spherical colloidal AuNPs is investigated as a function of particle diameter. Then, the chemical sensing potential of AuNPs is demonstrated by tracking the LSPR during an induced aggregation experiment.

Photo of apples

Commercial SERS substrates are readily available, making SERS an accessible technique for low-concentration detection. In this application note, residual phosmet insecticide on apple skin is detected using SERS.

Illustration of the SERRS technique

Surface-enhanced resonance Raman scattering is a technique that offers unparalleled sensitivity and specificity in non-destructive spectroscopic detection. It is a combination of surface-enhanced Raman scattering and resonance Raman spectroscopy.

Spectra from the analysis

The work shown in this paper suggests that Raman based spectrometers enabled by the High-Throughput Virtual Slit can be useful for in situ real time verification of the inclusion complex formation.
