What is a Raman probe?

raman probe definition

A Raman probe is a device used in Raman spectroscopy, a technique for analyzing the chemical composition of a sample by measuring the scattered light from its molecules. The probe typically consists of a laser, a lens system to focus the laser onto the sample, and a detector to measure the scattered light. The Raman effect, which is the basis of the technique, is the inelastic scattering of light by a sample, resulting in a shift in the wavelength of the scattered light. This shift is characteristic of the chemical bonds in the sample and can be used to identify the molecules present.

How do you use a Raman probe?

how to use a raman probe

  1. Plug-in your ReactRaman
  2. Connect your Raman probe or sampling technology
  3. Place the Raman probe into your reaction

Corrosion-resistant materials are used in our in-situ Raman probes to increase the lifespan and reliability of the probe. These materials are able to withstand exposure to harsh chemical environments and protect the probe from damage, reducing the need for frequent replacement or maintenance. Additionally, using corrosion-resistant materials can also improve the accuracy and precision of the measurements taken by the probe.

Is Raman or FTIR better for my application?

Raman and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy offer molecular information about the structure and composition of chemical and biological samples. Because of the fundamental principles that govern each technology, both can yield complementary information. However, frequently one technology is a better choice, depending on the nature of the application.
