Is Terahertz Ready for Process Applications?
Teraherz pulsed techniques have long been considered laboratory techniques, but recent advances have made them practical for the process laboratory.
Featured Products
Glacier™ X Miniature Fiber Coupled Spectrometer
The Glacier™ X is the smallest TE cooled spectrometer on the market, making it the perfect solution for applications that require high performance and portability. Compared to non-cooled CCD spectrometers, it offers higher dynamic range, significantly reduced dark counts, and superior baseline stability, making it ideal for low light level detection. http://www.bwtek.com/product/spectrometer/glacierx.html
Spectroscopy Through Your Microscope
The 308 PV™ is a UV-visible-NIR range spectrophotometer designed to work with your microscope. The 308 PV™ is designed to attach to your microscope and acquire absorbance, reflectance, fluorescence and other types of emission spectra of even sub-micron sized sample features. With the addition of special software modules of our MINERVA™ spectral analysis package, you are also able to do everything from small spot film thickness measurements to colorimetry of microscopic features to controlling automated stages and microscopes. The 308 PV™ is also able to acquire high resolution, color images and analyze them with our sophisticated ImageUV™ software. As part of the Perfect Vision for Science™ series from CRAIC Technologies, the 308 PV™ is a powerful, easy-to-use and highly capable solution for your microscopic analysis needs. http://microspectra.com/products/308-pv-microscope-microspectrophotometer
More Raman, Less Fluorescence
Enwave Optronics introduces the affordable and powerful EZRaman-I-9 Portable Raman analyzer with longer excitation wavelength above 900nm to minimize fluorescence and maximize your capability for Raman analysis in difficult-to-measure samples Enwave Optronics, Inc., Irvine, CA. www.enwaveopt.com

Wire-grid polarizers

Wire-grid polarizers from Moxtek are designed for spectroscopy and instrumentation. According to the company, wire-grid polarizers allow a single polarizer to cover a broad range of wavelengths and enable simplified light management because of their large acceptance angles. The polarizers function over the UV to IR wavebands and can be used at normal incidence. Wire-grid polarizers with reduced reflection are also available.
