508 PV™ Microscope Spectrophotometer - CRAIC Technologies


508 PV™

The 508 PV™ Microscope Spectrophotometer is designed to add spectroscopy, color imaging, thin film thickness measurement and colorimetry capabilities to your optical microscope or probe station. It can also be used to upgrade an older microspectrometer with cutting edge optics, electronics and software.

The 508 PV™ attaches to an open photoport and enables you to collect transmission, reflectance, polarization or even fluorescence and luminescence spectra of microscopic samples. Featuring Lightblades™ spectrophotometer technology from CRAIC, the 508 PV™ spectrophotometer has a usable spectral range from the ultraviolet to the near infrared. With the 508 PV™, you can acquire high quality spectra of even sub-micron samples rapidly, non-destructively and with ease.

The 508 PV™ Microscope Spectrophotometer is ideal for diverse applications such as colorimetry of pixels on flat panel displays, reflectometry of vitrinite coal and source rock, or thin film thickness measurements of optics and semiconductors. The 508 PV™is also a cost effective way to upgrade older microspectrometers to the latest hardware and software.

Imaging & Microscopy

High resolution color digital imaging

The 508 PV™ features high resolution, color digital imaging with sophisticated software. It allows you to simultaneously see both the spectrophotometer entrance aperture and the sample. This makes it very easy to align the sample for measurements and to capture full color images under any measurement conditions.
