CRAIC Technologies (San Dimas, CA) has added Raman Spectral Surface Mapping™ (S2M™) capabilities to its Apollo™ Raman microspectrometer line. S2M gives CRAIC Raman microspectrometer users the ability to map the Raman spectral variation of their samples with microscopic spatial resolution. Surface profiles can be created from Raman microspectral data from the CRAIC Apollo Raman microspectrometer. Spectral Surface Mapping includes a software module to be used with CRAIC Technologies MINERVA- Raman(TM) microspectrometer control software. When employed with CRAIC Technologies Apollo Raman microspectrometers with programmable stages, S2M allows a user to automatically take spectral measurements with user-defined mapping patterns that reach to the limits of the stage itself.
