Owners of the very popular microscope based Raman
spectrometer systems (almost always based on spectrographs and CCD
detectors) examine samples by back-scatter using their microscope
objectives as both laser focussing lenses and at the same time scattered
light collector. When analysing samples at the microscope level, these
instruments are unequally valuable but for routine use they do suffer
from the limitation that the sample must be small enough to 'fit'
beneath the objectives.
The Ventacon Macro-Micro accessory converts a microscope
Raman into a macroscopic system. The change is fully reversible so users have the 'best of
both worlds'. The accessory consists of a mirror/lens assembly and macro sample holders.
In fact, the accessory stage enables users to fit the full range of Ventacon accessories
- hot cells, cryogenic cells, bottle holders etc. The mirror/lens assembly screws into one
of the threaded apertures in your microscope objective turret and carries a reflector
turning the optic axis from vertical to horizontal.
