THz-Raman® Spectroscopy Probe

Ondax’s patented THz-Raman® Spectroscopy Systems extend the range of traditional  Raman spectroscopy  into the terahertz/low-frequency regime, exploring the same range of energy transitions as terahertz spectroscopy – without limiting the ability to measure the fingerprint region. This region reveals a new “Structural Fingerprint” to complement the traditional “Chemical Fingerprint” of Raman, enabling simultaneous analysis of both molecular structure and chemical composition in one instrument for advanced materials characterization.

The TR-PROBE is a compact, robust THz-Raman® probe that enables in-situ reaction or process monitoring, and can also be flexibly configured with a variety of sample interface accessories, including immersion or contact probe tips, a convenient vial/tablet holder, a
Transmission Raman adapter, a microscope mount, or a steerable non-contact optic (see options below). A separate CleanLine™ laser provides ASE-free excitation via a multimode fiber, enabling the probe to operate in harsher environments where electrical connections are not permitted.
