Imaging options

The inVia Raman microscope supports a variety of Raman mapping and imaging options.

  • StreamLine™ Plus imaging - Raman spectrum collected at every point. Simultaneous stage movement and CCD readout with zero dead-time between sequential data collections. Benefits from lower laser power density than spot imaging.
  • Point imaging - Raman spectrum collected at every point. Spatial information achieved by sample stage movement. Illumination is from laser spot.
  • Rapid line focus imaging - Raman spectrum collected at every point. Spatial information achieved by a combination of stage movement and CCD image binning. Benefits from lower laser power density than spot imaging.
  • Global Raman imaging - Discrete wavelengths imaged in every acquisition. Spatial information derived from image projected onto CCD.
