FT-Raman Series

The JASCO Model RFT-6000 FT-Raman accessory is designed for quick, non-destructive FT-Raman analysis of virtually any sample when used in conjunction with the JASCO Model FT/IR-6300 spectrometer.

System Description

Unlike dispersive Raman spectroscopy where spectra are normally measured using an excitation wavelength in the visible range; FT-Raman spectroscopy virtually eliminates fluorescence from the sample itself or sample impurities. FT-Raman spectroscopy also eliminates the tedious sample preparation sometimes required by FT-IR techniques. Eliminating these barriers drastically expands the potential for FT-Raman analysis to a wide variety of applications.

The near-infrared excitation of the RFT-6000 offers higher powered lasers to be used without photo degradation of the sample. The ability to co-add successive sample scans for the Fourier Transform technique compensates for the loss of sensitivity inherent to the weak Raman signals. The gold coated optical surfaces of the FT/IR-6300 enhance the sensitivity of the RFT-6000 allowing analysis of a wide variety of sample types and meeting the needs of a greater number of scientists.
