Deep UV Raman Confocal Imaging Microscope

This deep UV Raman confocal microscope was designed and made here in 2017. It was built with an Olympus BX51WIF microscope stand and a Princeton Instruments IsoPlane SCT 320 spectrometer. The spectrometer uses a cooled (-75¡ãC), back-illuminated, UV enhanced, PIXIS CCD Camera. The deep UV excitation source is a 266 nm laser generated with a Spectra-Physics WaveTrain frequency doubler and a 532 nm Excelsior laser. The system achieves high sensitivity, high spatial and spectral resolution and is well suited for deep UV excited Raman or fluorescence spectral imaging microscopy.
