• Raman analysis


    Raman spectroscopy instruments from Anton Paar are widely used to identify unknown substances, verify samples in quality assurance, analyze the chemical composition of samples, or monitor their changes.

    The Compact Raman Analyzer (Cora) series consists of a handheld Raman spectrometer for on-the-spot identification, confirmation of substances in the field, or verification measurements on incoming goods, as well as a range of benchtop Raman spectrometers for quality assurance, and for industrial and academic research.

  • Cora 100 – the handheld Raman spectrometer for identifying unknown substances

    Detect threats with the Cora 100 handheld Raman spectrometer

    Cora 100 is a robust tool which enables safe identification of unknown and dangerous substances within seconds.

    Designed to be operated under the toughest conditions, the instrument is widely used for the detection of hazardous materials, narcotics, explosives, and chemical warfare agents. Cora 100 is the intelligent assistant for threat detection and identification of hazardous materials which fits in the palm of your hand.

    The intuitive workflow and dedicated accessories enable EOD, hazmat, or CBRNE teams and firefighters to assess the risks involved with substances in order to make life-saving decisions on the spot or in hot-zone environments.

    Comprehensive databases like the narcotics database enable the screening of illicit and regulated substances and simplify the daily work of police and customs officers.

    Cora 100 is a handheld instrument for Raman analysis designed to assist operators in defense and security markets to make fast decisions which save lives and reduce hazards:

    • Know the unknown and identify thousands of substances and mixtures at the push of a button
    • Assess potential risks within seconds
    • Use safe sampling accessories that protect you
    • Fits right into your pocket and weighs only 650 g
    • Operate under the toughest conditions as a result of IP67 protection and MIL-STD 810G certification

  • Combining Raman spectroscopy with rheology: Correlate physical and chemical properties

    During chemical reactions, such as polymerizations or curing, the physical as well as chemical properties of a material change. While the viscoelastic properties can usually be characterized with a rheometer, no chemical information is obtained by mechanical testing. For directly relating the changes in rheological behavior to chemical changes, Raman spectroscopy is employed in situ with rheology. The Anton Paar MCR (Modular Compact Rheometer) series can be easily combined with the Anton Paar Cora Raman spectrometers via an optical fiber probe. Learn how Raman analysis helps you gain a better understanding of your sample and your reactions.

    Measuring graphene with a benchtop Raman spectrometer

    Graphene is a two-dimensional novel carbon material with exceptional properties. It has the highest tensile strength of any material known to date, while simultaneously being a good electrical and thermal conductor. For many of the rapidly emerging applications of this material, both in industry and fundamental research, Raman spectroscopy enables on-site measurements for quality assessment and material characterization. In this webinar, we discuss the typical samples, experimental details, and how to interpret the results from Raman spectroscopy.
