SMS – Multimodal Spectroscopy
The SMS comes either as a complete system including the microscope, or as an upgrade to a user’s existing microscope. As an upgrade, the SMS system is compatible with any upright microscope from major microscope manufacturers, such as Olympus®, Nikon®, Zeiss® and Leica®, transforming your microscope into a multimodal spectroscopy platform.
The SMS offers high performance Raman microspectroscopy with specifications comparable to high-end benchtop systems, but with unrivaled flexibility.
- Unique design with sharp filter cut-on offers access to low wave number modes (better than 80 cm-1 guaranteed)
- Advanced functionality, such as mapping
- The SMS system uses mainly reflective optics in its design, offering a wide spectral range for both excitation (266 nm – 1064 nm) and emission (250 nm – 2200 nm)
- Multiplex different techniques on one system, such as filter-based fluorescence imaging and full hyperspectral photoluminescence imaging
- Map up to 300 mm wafers
Time-resolved Photoluminescence (Lifetime)
Add Time-resolved Photoluminescence or lifetime point and imaging measurement to any SMS system with the Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) option.
Working in the time domain removes the confounding influences of concentration and photobleaching, as well as offering insights into temporal phenomena, such as carrier dynamics in photovoltaics and defects in semiconductors.
With its industry-leading true 100 MHz system operation, the SMS TCSPC option has fast acquisition rates, with decays acquired in mere milliseconds, allowing for TCSPC lifetime dynamic measurements. Select from our current catalog of over 70 compact pulsed light sources, with more being added all the time.
Reflectance and Transmittance
Perform broad-spectrum reflectance and transmittance measurements from UV to NIR with high spatial resolution.
Electroluminescence and Photocurrent
With its open microscope frame design, the SMS system can accommodate micro-probes to enable electroluminescent measurements on LEDs, photovoltaic and other semiconductor materials.
Nanospectroscopy with Darkfield Scattering Technique
Take advantage of darkfield functionality on the microscope to perform nanospectroscopy on the SMS. Enable characterization of nanomaterials by measuring the light scattering spectrum in darkfield mode.
