A stand-off Raman probe coupled with a HES2000 spectrometer provides the ideal solution for making real time observations in hazardous environments.
Ideally suited for mounting to a UGV or robotic manipulator for remote sensing tasks. For example, these probes are currently being used to aid in the decommissioning of gloveboxes. Can also be combined with a 3D camera as part of an inspection package – see video below.
The HES2000 spectrometer is a Static Fourier Transform spectrometer providing high étendue measurements. Étendue is commonly referred to as throughput of a spectrometer. It is a measure of the ability of a spectrometer to capture and utilise individual photons from a particular area of a target or field of view.
The specifications given below are for the standard HES2000, but the unit is highly customizable.
For details of the Raman probe see https://is-instruments.com/raman-probe/
|< 200 – 2300 cm-1
|~ 3 cm-1 over whole range per Fourier bin
(To resolve two lines 3 bins are required)
|SMA or FC/PC
|≥1 mm as standard
*Unlike most other systems the HES spectrometers are linear in wavenumber space, meaning you won’t lose resolution as you move away from the starting wavelength. Unlike conventional spectrometers there is no slit required so no blurring is observed.
*Cost will vary dependent on duration of hire and support required
**There is 1 available at RACE
Raman Spectrometer is available at the following facilities:
