Dichroic mirrors for Raman spectroscopy by Iridian Spectral Technologies

March 15, 2013
Dichroic mirrors for Raman spectroscopy from Iridian Spectral Technologies offer high reflectance (>95%) at the laser line and high transmittance (>95%) of the Raman signal.

Dichroic mirrors for Raman spectroscopy from Iridian Spectral Technologies (Ottawa, ON, Canada) offer high reflectance (>95%) at the laser line and high transmittance (>95%) of the Raman signal. In Raman spectroscopy, Raman scattered light is significantly weaker than the excitation light, so the mirrors address the need for high signal-to-noise optical filtering.

New from Iridian: High Performance Dichroic Mirrors for Raman Spectroscopy

Ottawa, Canada - To complete the line of market-leading standard filters for Raman Spectroscopy, Iridian is now offering dichroic mirrors. These dichroic mirrors offer high reflectance (>95%) at the laser line and high transmittance (>95%) of the Raman signal.

In Raman spectroscopy, the desired signal (Raman scattered light) is significantly weaker than the excitation light, and thus high signal-to-noise optical filtering is critical. Typical Raman systems require laser clean up filters, edge pass filters and dichroic mirrors. Iridian now offers these three filter types for common Raman excitation wavelengths to allow the user to see more signal with less background.

Iridian has been producing Raman dichroic mirrors for OEMs for years and is now offering these high performance filters as standard products. Iridian also offers dichroic mirrors for fluorescence, flow cytometry and custom applications.

Iridian Spectral Technologies Ltd (Iridian) - Ottawa, ON, Canada - www.iridian.ca - Iridian is a diversified optical filter manufacturer that is an international leader in filter design and manufacture especially for application in the fields of fiber optic communications, optical spectroscopy, 3D entertainment, and in aerospace. Iridian was ranked as one of the top 150 high technology companies in Canada in the 2011 and 2012 Branham300 rankings and won the 2010 Canada Export Achievement Award for the province of Ontario sponsored by Profit magazine together with Export Development Corporation (EDC). Iridian is a global supplier with distributors in many countries particularly in Asia. Follow us on Twitter @IridianSpectral
