Automated UV-visible-NIR Spectroscopy of Microscopic Features with the 20/20 PV from CRAIC Technologies
(Nanowerk News) CRAIC Technologies, the worlds leading innovator of UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy solutions, is proud to introduce the automated version of its flagship product: the 20/20 Perfect Vision™ UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer. This system is designed to be fully programmable with touchscreen controls so that it can automatically analyze microscopic samples with UV-visible-NIR spectroscopy and microscopy. Imaging and spectroscopic a nalysis of samples can be done by absorbance, reflectance and fluorescence from the deep UV to far into the near infrared.
Applications are numerous and include contamination analysis of hard disk components, thin film measurement of semiconductors, microcolorimetry of flat panel displays and quality control of pharmaceuticals. With multiple spectroscopic techniques, high resolution UV, color and NIR microscale imaging and advanced automation, the 20/20 PV™ is the cutting-edge micro-analysis tool for any laboratory or manufacturing facility.
The 20/20 Perfect Vision™ UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer.
"CRAIC Technologies has been an innovator in the field of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis since its founding. We have helped to advance the field of microscale analysis with innovative instrumentation, software, research and teaching.
