Arriving in January 2011,
the Nanophoton RAMAN-11 confocal Raman microscope has been
used for studies of both both biological and nanotechnology
studies. Based on a Nikon upright microscope, the RAMAN-11
has two powerful lasers and an ultrasensitive detector to
acquire both standard microscope images and molecular information.
Emplyoing unique laser scanning technology, the RAMAN-11
is many times faster than traditional systems. The software
and user interface are both flexible and intuitive, allowing
users to acquire data quickly in spot, line, xyz, and xz
The RAMAN-11 is in BIF on long-term loan courtesy of Nanophoton
