Infrared Spectroscopy and Raman Spectroscopy

One-Of-A-Kind AIRsight™ Infrared/Raman Microscope

The AIRsight™ Infrared/Raman Microscope provides a two-in-one solution for molecular analysis. This unique system is equipped with a Raman unit available on Shimadzu’s AIMsight infrared microscope and compatible with the IRTracer-100, IRXross and IRAffinity-1 series Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers.

The AIRsight Infrared/Raman Microscope improves analytical efficiency by making it easy to perform all process steps, from sample observation to data analysis. The instrument also increases accuracy because users can obtain qualitative infrared and Raman spectra at the same position without moving samples on the same stage by simply switching lenses. The system incorporates Shimadzu’s proprietary wide-view camera and microscope camera for infrared measurements and objective lens for Raman measurements. The wide-view camera shares positional information with the microscope camera and objective lenses.

AMsolution software includes measurement and analysis programs. The measurement software controls both infrared and Raman measurements via the same window so users can smoothly perform all processes, from image acquisition to measuring infrared and Raman spectra.

The AIRsight Infrared/Raman Microscope is equipped with a standard extensive selection of libraries, including proprietary Shimadzu libraries and libraries for substances ranging from typical reagents to macromolecules. Optional software, accessories and libraries are also available.

Examples of Problems Solved

 Contaminant components cannot be identified with an infrared microscope alone.

 The contaminant was identified based on both infrared and Raman measurement results.

 Measuring the same sample location with both infrared and Raman is desired.

 The infrared and Raman microscope enabled the same location to be quickly measured without moving the sample.

 The target area is too small to be measured with an infrared microscope.

 The infrared and Raman microscope enabled even smaller areas to be targeted and measured.

 Detailed analysis of both organic and inorganic components is desired.

 Combining infrared and Raman spectroscopy enabled material analysis.
