Spectroscopy White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Modular Spectroscopy Tools For The Simultaneous Measurement Of Fluorescein Absorbance And Fluorescence

    Spectroscopy is a powerful tool providing a wealth of information with the relatively simple measurement of how light interacts with a sample.

  2. High Performance Lasers for Raman Spectroscopy

    Raman Spectroscopy is a highly effective process used in materials analysis applications. Highly-collimated and monochromatic light sources are ideal for Raman Spectroscopy, making lasers the ideal light source for such a process. This application note discusses the benefits of using Cobolt’s DPSS (Diode Pumped Solid State) lasers as excitation sources in Raman Spectroscopy.

  3. Using Raman Spectroscopy To Detect Malignant Changes In Tissues

    Accurate, rapid, and non-invasive detection and diagnosis of malignant disease in tissues is an important goal of biomedical research. Optical methods, such as diffuse reflectance, fluorescence spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy, have all been investigated as ways to attain this goal. Diffuse reflectance utilizes the absorption and scattering properties of tissues, particularly from cell nuclei and stroma.

  4. Fluorescence Spectroscopy: A More Energy Efficient Light Source For Biomedial Research

    The measurement needs of fluorescence vary greatly depending upon the application. Avantes has worked closely with a number of researchers and process engineers to facilitate fluorescence measurements in research, clinical and industrial environments.
