Low Frequency Raman Spectroscopy

Raman Spectroscopy can be described as a tool that measures the molecular structure and identifies the chemical composition of materials based on the rotational and vibrational modes of a molecule. Standard probes generally focus on the spectral range between 176cm-1-4000cm-1, but the B&W Tek BAC102 series E-grade probe is able to access frequency modes as low as 65cm-1. The access to lower frequencies provides key information for applications involving protein characterization, polymorph detection and identification, and material phase and structure determination. Download the application note to see how the low frequency E-grade probe can be a valuable asset in these applications as well as in studying semiconductor lattices, carbon nanotubes, solar cells, and many kinds of minerals, pigments, and gemstones.
