inVia Raman Microscope

The Renishaw inVia Raman microscope is Australia's premier Raman spectrometer for research and industry, comprising a research-grade optical microscope coupled to a high-performance Raman spectrometer. Researchers tackling the most challenging analytical problems rely on the proven high performance, versatility, and flexibility of inVia microscopes.

One single instrument delivers both highly-specific discrete analyses, and information-rich chemical images across the broadest range of material types. It is rapid, non-destructive, and does not require invasive chemical labels. It is intuitive and easy to use, ideal for spectroscopists and non-spectroscopists alike. Raman spectroscopy reveals the vibrations of molecules and crystals. With this information you can identify substances, and also determine other valuable details, such as the level of stress in crystals or semiconductors, the quality and the quantitative depth of a coating or film.

Key Features of Raman Spectroscopy
  • Non-contacting and non-destructive analysis
  • Experiments are fast because little or no sample preparation is required
  • You can analyse samples contained within most transparent containers, and in aqueous solution
  • You can routinely study particles as small as 1µm
Key Features of inVia Raman Spectrometer
  • ∼1cm-1 spectral resolution
  • 0.05cm-1 repeatability
  • 1-2µm spatial resolution (wavelength and objective dependent)
  • High throughput/efficiency imaging spectrometer design
  • Novel patented design features
  • Continuously variable laser spot from 1 - 300µm

StreamLine HR Raman Imaging

StreamLine HR Raman Imaging

Rather than viewing discrete spectra, you can create information-rich maps and images that fully illustrate your most complex samples.
Technology From: Renishaw

StreamLine HR Raman Imaging

With an inVia and a Renishaw HSES

High Speed Encoded Stage
XYZ stage (100nm step) and ergonomic trackball, you can make manual measurements of points on your sample, across a large 112mm × 76mm travel range. However, the true power of Renishaw's inVia Raman microscope and its Windows-based Raman Environment (WiRE) software is revealed when you use its automated mapping and imaging capabilities. Rather than viewing discrete spectra, you can create information-rich maps and images that fully illustrate your most complex samples.

StreamLine Plus is inVia's ultra-fast imaging technique and is the spatial equivalent of Renishaw's patented SynchroScan method for continuous extended scanning. You can view an image of the sample and define on it the region to analyse as a series of points, a line, or a rectangle. The region is superimposed on the white light image, with the sampling points indicated by a grid.

Using Renishaw's high speed encoded stage, you can build a white light montage of any area within the range of the XYZ to image, not limited by the field of view of the objective. StreamLine produces a seamless rapid data stream and Raman images of incredible detail, with full spectral content for every point. StreamLine Plus' high resolution (StreamLine HR) option rapidly generates Raman maps with pixel sizes down to as low as 250nm. This enables you to apply the analytical power of Raman spectroscopy to many challenging nanotechnology structures.

Raman-AFM

Raman-AFM

The efficiency and stability at the core of the inVia Raman microscope, and the inherent flexibility it offers by design, makes it the perfect platform for integration.
Technology From: Renishaw

Raman-AFM

Renishaw identified and pioneered the combination of atomic force microscopy (AFM) with Raman scattering on a single platform and now celebrates its 10th year supplying combined Raman-AFM

Atomic Force Microscope
systems to the research and academic communities. Raman spectroscopy provides the perfect complement for AFM measurements as it provides detailed chemical information about the sample, something that is missing from the array of imaging modes of AFMs.

The efficiency and stability at the core of the inVia Raman microscope, and the inherent flexibility it offers by design, makes it the perfect platform for integration. This allows researchers to use their preferred AFM of choice to probe nanostructures to extract vital material components, and to perform tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) with spatial resolutions approaching 10nm.

The Renishaw inVia Raman spectrometer integrates to a wide range of commercial AFM manufacturers including Park, Bruker, Nanonics, NT-MDT and JPK.

Raman-SEM

Raman-SEM

The SEM-SCA system is a unique combination of two mature technologies that results in a techniques toolset that redefines convenience, efficiency, and productivity.
Technology From: Renishaw

Raman-SEM

The Renishaw SEM

Scanning Electron Microscope
-SCA
Structural and Chemical Analyser
enables scanning electron microscopists to benefit from the chemical, structural, and electronic information available from optical spectroscopies, whilst observing the sample using the scanning electron microscope or analysing it using energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). The SCA can be connected to any of Renishaw's inVia Raman and PL spectrometers, and supports single or multiple techniques. Comprehensive in-situ sample characterisation is possible using a single instrument.

The SEM-SCA system is a unique combination of two mature technologies that results in a techniques toolset that redefines convenience, efficiency, and productivity. When fitted to a SEM with EDS

Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy
, the structural and chemical analyser provides the means to characterise a sample in situ as follows:

  • Morphology from the SEM secondary electron image
  • Composition information from the SEM (mean atomic number from backscattered electron imaging)
  • Elemental composition from EDS
  • Chemical composition and identification from Raman spectroscopy
  • Electronic structure from CL
    cathodoluminescence
    and PL
    photoluminescence
    spectroscopies
  • Physical structure and properties (crystallographic and mechanical data) from Raman, CL and PL

Renishaw inVia Raman spectrometer design can be combined with a Smith Detection IlluminatIR II FTIR module enabling the acquisition of IR (FTIR) and Raman spectra from the same spot on the sample.
Technology From: Renishaw

Raman-FTIR

Renishaw inVia Raman spectrometer design can be combined with a Smith Detection IlluminatIR II FTIR

Fourier Transform Infrared
module enabling the acquisition of IR (FTIR) and Raman spectra from the same spot on the sample. The IlluminatIR may be easily mounted beneath the eyepieces of the research grade, infinity corrected, Leica DM2500M microscope of Renishaw's inVia Raman instrument. This enables users to retain the full use of the range of optical techniques available with the Leica DM2500M.

The IlluminatIR is commonly used with either a diamond contact ATR

Attenuated Total Reflectance
or a diffuse reflectance objective. The sample can be viewed, and Raman spectra collected, either through these objectives or through the high quality microscope objectives supplied with the inVia Raman microscope. Simple switching between video view, IR
Infrared
acquisition view and Raman acquisition view allows IR and Raman spectra to be acquired sequentially from the same spot on the sample.
