TrueSurface – The Original Topographic Raman Imaging System, Redefined

WITec, the inventor of topographic Raman imaging, will present at Pittcon 2017 in Chicago the next generation of its patented TrueSurface optical profilometer.

The combination of surface analysis and Raman spectral acquisition enables topographic Raman imaging on rough and uneven samples. One-pass simultaneous operation makes 3D Raman chemical characterization easier and faster than ever before.

“WITec established Raman topographic imaging with TrueSurface. We then continued to innovate, leveraging the inherent strengths of our systems. The overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers confirms that chemical 3D surface analysis with TrueSurface is a successful concept with an enthusiastic following in academia and industry.

Dr. Olaf Hollricher -Managing Director of R&D, WITec

With the TrueSurface option, Raman spectra are acquired from precisely along a surface, or at a set, user-defined distance from a surface. This makes the distribution of chemical components within the sample visible in three dimensions. Rough, inclined or irregularly-shaped samples can be investigated with the same ease as standard samples. The requirements of sample preparation can therefore be drastically reduced.

As the TrueSurface sensor actively monitors and maintains a set distance between the objective and sample surface, its closed-loop operation can compensate for any variations during measurements with long integration times. This keeps the measurement area in focus at all times and produces sharp chemical Raman images with sub-micrometer resolution.

Investigations on pharmaceutical tablet coatings, geological samples, composite emulsions, complex semiconductor structures and many other applications can benefit from the ease of use, accelerated workflow and methodological advantages provided by the new TrueSurface.

TrueSurface is for everybody who wants to just take a sample, as it is, and put it under a microscope for chemical analysis. Also, the combination of confocal Raman imaging and optical profilometry provides additional information on the chemical distribution of the sample components that are of great benefit to our customers.

Dr. Joachim Koenen - Managing Director, WITec

The new TrueSurface from WITec will be presented at the Pittcon 2017 Conference & Expo at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois from March 5th to the 9th. Topographic Raman imaging can be experienced live at booth #1638.
