Elliot Scientific has launched the 508 PV UV-visible-NIR spectrophotometer in the UK and Ireland. The product is designed to be added to the open photoport of a microscope or probe station for non-destructive analysis of the spectra of many types of microscopic samples.
Featuring Craic Technologies' Lightblades spectrophotometers and proprietary optical interface technologies, the 508 PV can acquire 8 megapixel high-resolution colour images and the spectra of microscopic sample areas by absorbance, reflectance, polarisation, luminescence and fluorescence.
Applications include characterisation of new materials, measurement of surface plasmon resonance, graphene, vitrinite reflectance of coal and high resolution colourimetric and relative intensity mapping of flat panel displays. Thin film thickness of microscopic areas can also be measured using the device. The spectrophotometer is a cost effective micro-analysis tool for any laboratory or manufacturing facility.
