Apollo II™ Raman MicrospectrometerSan Dimas, CA – November 27, 2017 — CRAIC Technologies, a leading innovator in the field of optical microanalysis, is proud to introduce the new state-of-the-art in Raman microspectroscopy: the Apollo II™ Raman microspectrometer.  Designed for routine research, the Apollo II™ is reliable, robust, and powerful.  It features high sensitivity, high resolution, a broad spectral range, and rapid sampling times. This state of the art instrument enables scientists and engineers to measure the Raman spectra from microscopic samples or microscope sampling areas of large samples, such as semiconductors. The Apollo II™ can also be added to a CRAIC Technologies 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer to give it the ability to collect Raman microspectra™ in addition to UV-visible-NIR absorbance, reflectance, and photoluminescence microspectroscopy and imaging. The cutting edge technology of the Apollo II™ means that a whole host of capabilities are now available to researchers and engineers. With the introduction of the Apollo II™ Raman spectrometer, CRAIC Technologies is proud to offer you an even more powerful tool for micro-analysis.  

“CRAIC Technologies has been an innovator in the field of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis since its founding. We have helped to advance the field of microscale analysis with innovative instrumentation, software, research and teaching. We have seen the need for Raman microspectroscopy in addition to our current capabilities of UV-visible-NIR and photoluminescence microspectroscopy. Therefore, we created the Apollo II™ Raman microspectrometer to add to our current instruments” states Dr. Paul Martin, president of CRAIC Technologies. “By incorporating Raman spectroscopy with our UV-visible microspectrophotometers, the customer no longer has purchase a separate instrument, nor move the sample between instruments and acquire the data separately. You can simply analyze the same microscopic area of the sample under the same conditions without additional sample preparation or instrument alignment. By using the same instrument to make multiple types of measurements, including Raman microspectroscopy, laboratory efficiency, and sample analysis throughput can therefore be dramatically increased.”

The Apollo II™ Raman spectrometer is a self contained unit that features an the latest in long-lived laser technology, an advanced optical interface to the microscope, a powerful Raman spectrometer and advanced software for instrument control and data analysis. The system is designed for use with up to three lasers and offers extremely high sensitivity, high resolution, a broad spectral range and fast scan times. The idea is to have a powerful, easy-to-use Raman microspectrometer to enhance your spectroscopic results. These rugged, self-contained units are designed to be used either with an optical microscope or with a CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometer. With high sensitivity, high spectral resolution, a broad spectral range, a durable design, ease-of-use, and the support of CRAIC Technologies, the Apollo II™ is more than just a Raman is the future of Raman spectroscopy.
