SENTERRA II Compact Raman Microscope

Raman Applications for any Industry

The SENTERRA II allows measuring Raman images and combines the obtained spatially resolved molecular information with high-quality microscopic images of the sample. The analysis is performed contactless and without the need of sample preparation. Chemical images of the sample surface can be achieved with a very high spatial resolution down to less than a micron. In addition depth profiling of optically transparent samples allows non-destructive sample investigation in the third dimension. Being suitable to be used for the detection, discrimination and identification of organic and inorganic materials the SENTERRA II has a wide range of applications.
