Montana Instruments Rebrands CryoRaman

Montana Instruments Cryostation Optical Cryostat

The solution formally known as “CryoRaman” is now officially branded as: microRevealTM Raman.

Montana Instruments are on a mission – to make cold science simple. Their philosophy is centred on three main principles: 

1) Ease of use
2) Ease of access
3) Turn-key operation

All their optical cryostats are cryogen-free and combine low vibration, high temperature stability, low sample drift and superb optical access – making them suited for the most demanding cryogenic experiments.

Animation showing a variable temperature Raman measurement in the Cryostation – the fully-integrated platform allows user to explore fundamental properties of new materials with temperature-dependent spectroscopic measurements.

Many interesting phenomena emerge at cryogenic temperatures, and often, additional or new information about a sample can be revealed with temperature-dependent measurements. This variable temperature Raman microscope system is optimised for high collection efficiency and throughput, offering an automated and controlled environment for characterising materials with standard spectroscopic techniques.

Experimental Benefits

  • Explore temperature-dependent phase transitions, frequency shifts, and linewidth sharpening with precise sample temperature control
  • Obtain spectra at user-defined intervals through the entire range (4K – 525K). A full set can be obtained in about one hour
  • Generate precise Raman maps with low thermal-mechanical drift
  • Acquire a full material property profile with simultaneous temperature-dependent spectroscopic and electrical measurements
  • Measure weakly emitting materials efficiently with the integrated high NA optics

Measurement Techniques

  • Raman Microscopy and Imaging
  • Photoluminescence Spectroscopy and Imaging
  • Absorption Spectroscopy
  • Electrical and Photoelectrical Transport
