inVia™ Qontor® confocal Raman microscope

The new inVia™ Qontor® confocal Raman microscope

The new inVia Qontor is Renishaw's most advanced Raman microscope. With the addition of Renishaw's latest innovation, LiveTrack™ focus tracking technology, the inVia Qontor enables users to analyse samples with uneven, curved or rough surfaces. Optimum focus is maintained in real time during data collection and white light video viewing. This removes the need for time consuming manual focusing, pre-scanning or sample preparation.

The inVia Qontor confocal Raman microscope's cutting-edge technology reduces overall experiment times and makes analysing even the most complex samples easy.

  • Keep your view of the sample in focus while you survey it under manual control
  • Raman-map rough, uneven, and curved surfaces
  • Little or no sample preparation is required
  • View Raman chemical images in 3D and see both the chemistry and the topography
  • No need for a time-consuming surface pre-scan
  • Maintain focus during dynamic measurements, such as sample heating/cooling and during very long measurements when the environmental conditions are varying

    Renishaw’s LiveTrack™ focus-tracking technology makes it easy to study samples with uneven, curved, or rough surfaces. This 3D Raman image of an indented silicon wafer reveals stresses around the indent (compressive regions white/yellow, tensile regions black/dark red). The blue-green region within the indent is silicon that has been very highly plastically deformed, with a highly amorphous structure.
