The RAM II is the first dual channel FT-Raman module that can be coupled to the VERTEX FT-IR research spectrometer series. Utilizing the input and output port of a VERTEX 70, VERTEX 80 or the related vacuum versions VERTEX 70v und VERTERX 80v the RAM II provides the ideal FT-Raman measurement device. The intuitive, easy-to-use OPUS software controls all data collection and manipulation functions for the system and allows automated switching between FT-Raman and FT-IR measurements.
The FT-Raman module RAM II is the culmination of Bruker’s long-term experience in FT-Raman spectroscopy with advanced 24-bit detector electronics and high quality optics. The coupling of the RAM II module with the Bruker VERTEX FT-IR research spectrometer provides superb stability and throughput required for demanding emission experiments which is the case for FT-Raman spectroscopy.
For ultimate flexibility, the RAM II can accommodate a second laser and detection system, automated polarization accessory, and two-fiber optic coupling ports. Additional features include switching to 90° scattering geometry, and defocusing optics which are necessary for colored samples to avoid overheating by the laser beam. A motorized sample stage for sample position optimization, and a white light source to correct the spectra for instrument responses are included in the standard configuration of the RAM II.
