For the past 30 years Raman spectroscopy has been widely used for numerous chemical research applications. Now, the new TimeGated® Raman technology broadens the application range of Raman to biosciences, geosciences and many others where the fluorescence emission has hindered successful Raman analyses.
The Achilles’ heel of conventional Raman technology is the photoluminescence (including fluorescence, phosphorescence etc.). Photoluminescence is a competing phenomenon with Raman scattering and it can overlap the whole Raman signal in the measured spectra making the identification or quantification of materials impossible.
With new TimeGated® technology, we can now achieve Real Fluorescence Rejection.
How do we do this?
