Raman spectrometers


IMPMC is equipped with 2 micro-Raman confocal spectrometers well adapted for both high pressure in diamond anvil cell (DAC) and high/low temperature measurements (800 K – 10 K) but also for macroscopic samples. Available light sources are 2 Argon lasers (λ0 = 514.5 nm or 488 nm), 1 Krypton (λ0 = 647.1 nm or 676.4 nm) laser and 1 Ti:Sapphire laser (variable tuning). The Jobin-Yvon Horiba HR460 with a single-grating monochromator is used for experiments requiring high brilliance. The Jobin-Yvon Horiba T64000 with three-stage monochromator enables to work in high resolution (additive mode) or very low frequency down to 10 cm-1 (subtractive mode).
