Happy Halloween! The applications team at Edinburgh Instruments are getting into the spooky spirit with some supernatural Raman maps taken on the new RMS1000 Raman Microscope. Find out more...
The lateral (X-Y) resolution of fluorescence and Raman microscopes is frequently calculated using the famous Rayleigh Criterion for resolution, 0.61λ/NA, but where does this resolution limit arise from and how does it relate to the other resolution limits encountered in microscopy? Find out more...
Watch this space for the next high performance, industry leading research instrument.
RMS Time – coming soon.
Surface enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) is a surface sensitive enhancement technique used to obtain higher Raman intensities. This blog post explores the two mechanisms that occur during SERS enhancement, what substrates can be used, and the combination of resonance Raman with SERS for even greater enhancements.
The spot size that a laser can be focussed down to in Raman or fluorescence microscopy is an important parameter that depends on the wavelength of the laser and the properties of the microscope’s objective lens.
Molecular Spectroscopy is a subcategory of spectroscopy that studies the interaction of radiation with molecules and extended materials, as opposed to atomic spectroscopy techniques which deal with individual atoms.
We are delighted to announce the next in our series of popular webinars - “What is Nanosecond Transient Absorption?” This webinar session will be taking place on 6th and 19th August, to accommodate for all time zones.
"In the spotlight" UV-Visible Spectroscopy Instrumentation - In this article we take a look at some of the accessories which can be used with our DS5 Dual Beam UV-Vis Spectrophotometer.
The spectral resolution in Raman spectroscopy dictates the maximum number of spectral peaks that the spectrometer can resolve. The level of spectral resolution required is dependent on the sample and what information the user is aiming to obtain from the Raman spectrum. Five main factors determine the spectral resolution achievable: slit size, diffraction grating, spectrometer focal length, detector, and the
