Raman Spectroscopy

Increase throughput without losing precision whether line scanning or point Raman

About Raman Spectroscopy

Raman spectroscopy is used in two techniques to scan the sample – point Raman, where the laser beam could either be incident on the sample on a single focus point or as a line. Line Raman technique increases throughput (and speed) but requires higher power from the lasers. Both methods can be applied in in-line applications. Raman spectroscopy relies on spectral bandwidth (resolution is an effect of spectral bandwidth, narrow bandwidth = higher resolution), power stability, and wavelength stability. Optics typically limit the laser wavelength to either 532 or 785 nm. Meeting the optimal specifications of these will give a clear reading of the chemical make-up of what is being tested.


Whether line scanning or point Raman, OEMs and end-use customers want to increase throughput without losing precision. This can be achieved through in-line applications and Novanta laser systems offer:


  • High specification and stable lasers to support repeatable, accurate, and reliable results
  • Improved resolution and stability with high throughput and long-term reliability
  • Customization of products to meet exact customer requirements
  • Single source for unique, integrated subsystems
  • Low maintenance and high throughput laser and scanning solution options
