Raman spectroscopy is one of the light scattering techniques, which is used for determination of vibrational modes of molecules. It is a popular, analytical and spectroscopic technique used in the research laboratorie worldwide. Raman imaging, Raman shift and Raman analysis are the popular terms associated with Raman spectroscopy.
Raman spectroscopy applied to the scale of 1012 Hertz is called terahertz Raman spectroscopy. Terahertz is a unit of frequency and is represented as one trillion cycles per second or 1012 Hertz. For the derivation of terahertz Raman spectroscopy, some sophisticated tools are added to conventional Raman spectroscopy.
This article discusses some of the features of the terahertz Raman spectroscopy, its design, uses, and applications.
The Raman spectroscopy is simplified with microscopy, having some ultrafast narrow-line lasers, which spread across the whole visible spectrum, having output power ranging from milliwatts to watts.
One measurement is there - there is an optical method, which provides data in phase and nanostructure with terahertz (THz) spectroscopy, as it extends the measurement to less than 10 cm-1 .
There are better CARS/SRS techniques - There is a simplification of simulated Raman spectroscopy and microscopy with ultrafast lasers.
Wider selection - there are abundant narrow-line lasers to select from the visible spectrum, from milliwatts to watts.
In THz Raman spectroscopy, systems and laser components provide extension to Raman with unique data on nanostructures, polymorphs,adhesive curving, changes of phase, protein conformation and binding.
There are probes, spectrometers, microscope accessories, and well-plate readers, which simplify low-frequency Raman analysis.
From an extensive range of ultrafast lasers for CARS and SRS spectroscopy and imaging, lasers can be chosen. Label-free microscopy can be performed in vitro and in vivo.
Ultrafast laser oscillators and scientific ultrafast amplifiers add value to the terahertz Raman spectroscopy.
Complete Raman analysis - In a single instrument, both the molecular structure and chemical composition are able to be analyzed.
Increases signal strength - from lower frequency regions, up to 10X higher signals can be obtained.
Application-specific tools - reactor sampling probes, microscopy, well-plate readers, benchtop instruments.
Accessories and instruments extend the range of traditional Raman spectroscopy into the low-wavenumber region/THz, without restricting the capability for the measurement of the chemical fingerprint region.
It is preferably compatible with diverse analytical applications in the lab or at-line. The product is inclusive of bench spectroscopy modules, a platform of microscopy, an array of sampling probes and well-plate systems.
Well-plate system - Automated benchtop reader for analysis of common well plate formats. Easier to use graphical user interface, autofocusing, integrated polarized light microscopy vision system making speedy intra-well mapping easier.

Rugged and reliable - Optical design, sealed and thermal stability play a role
Diverse sampling options - Without any sample preparation, in situ analysis is performed
Compact fiber-coupled design - Enabling of flexible mountings for microscopes, reaction chambers, tabletop or handheld usage
Benchtop spectroscopy module - With different options of laser wavelengths, the existing Raman system can be connected to an integrated THz module.
Integrated laser source - For all Thz-Raman modules, 532 nm, 808 nm, 785 nm, 1064 nm or 976 nm can be chosen.
Inherent spectral calibration - There is simultaneous compilation of Stokes spectrum and anti-Stokes spectrum for all THz-Raman modules.
Versatile sampling - It is available with a whole range of sample interface ancillaries
THz-Raman microscope platform - Every microscope is able to be turned into a high performing Raman microscopy along with the Modular upgrade. It is compatible with Nikon, Olympus, Zeiss and Leica formats.
Whole Raman spectrum - Simultaneously catching of chemical (+5 cm-1 to +200 cm-1) and structural (+200 cm-1 and +2000 cm-1 ) footprint of molecules in the regions
Simple integration - Through fiber coupled output, easy integration with spectrometers can be done.
Operational flexibility - There is a simple optical in & out switch, which removes the system from the optical path.
Sureblock XLF filter systems - The pre-aligned filter systems are used to speedily capture both conventional Raman data and THz-Raman data.
Extended frequency range - For obtaining both Stokes and anti-Stokes, capture of Raman spectra to within 5 cm-1 can be performed.
