RA100 Raman analyser

With Renishaw's RA100 Raman Analyser you can make remote Raman measurements in your laboratory, out in the field, or on a production line.

A complete system consists of:

  • a RA100 high throughput spectrometer
  • up to four fibre optic probes
  • single or multiple lasers
  • a computer (or laptop)

It provides higher spectral performance than more basic handheld Raman systems and is small enough to transport to the sample or specimen site. With a range of fibre probe options you can view your sample, select the analysis region of interest and collect data, at whatever magnification you need.

Great results

RA100 gives you great Raman spectra:

  • optimum optical design for rapid analysis (efficient f/1.4 optics) 
  • configurable to suit your application
  • cooled research-grade CCD detector for high sensitivity measurements 
  • up to four lasers (of the same or differing wavelengths), each capable of serving one or more sampling stations 
  • supported excitation wavelengths are 488 nm, 514.5 nm, 532 nm, 632.8 nm, 785 nm (others available on request)
  • internal reference source for self-calibration

Easy to use

RA100 is easy to use:

  • it uses the same data and user-interface standards as Renishaw's other spectroscopy products,  reducing operator training requirements
  • turn-key operation for ease of use
  • software controlled probe switching
  • Custom Analysis Package (CAP) software available for repeated identical analysis requirements


You can rely on RA100:

  • rugged components for an extended trouble-free lifetime
  • tested to withstand industrial environments
  • modular to allow rapid switch-over of components
  • optional external reference source for calibration transfer


  • Up to four wavelength-specific fibre optic probes per control unit to minimise costs 
  • Probes can be up to 100 metres away from the RA100 
  • One laser can be used for several sampling stations. Spectra can be acquired from all stations simultaneously
  • Multiple excitation wavelengths - several lasers can each supply a corresponding probe. Spectra are acquired sequentially from each set of like-excitation-wavelength probes
