Andor’s Spectroscopy portfolio offers high sensitivity and highly configurable solutions to characterise the chemical, structural, electronic and/or optical properties of a wide range of materials down to the nanoscale with high accuracy and repeatability.
It provides essential tools for the study of structures at the nano-, micro- and macro-scale based on probing techniques including Raman, Photoluminescence / Fluorescence / Cathodoluminescence, Absorption, Optical Emission Spectroscopy and LIBS, Second Harmonic Generation or Darkfield Scattering.
Andor spectroscopy detectors provide the highest sensitivity from UV to SWIR regions, ensuring that information related to chemical signatures, structural changes or photonics properties can be obtained with the highest accuracy and highest reproducibility possible. Our highly configurable spectrographs provide platforms ideal for multimodal setups and a wide range of photon regimes and experiments e.g. micro-spectroscopy.
Non-invasive probing techniques like Raman, Photoluminescence, or Absorption can provide very specific information on the structural (including presence of defects or behaviour under strain/stress), electronics behaviour or light emission properties of a wide range of advanced semiconductor structures.
These range from low dimensional nanocrystals, Transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDs) or organic semiconductors (e.g. OLEDs) to more complex microelectronics and light harvesting structures.Contact our application specialists Browse application resources
Application of optical spectroscopy in quantum science include the characterisation of electronics and optical properties of single-photon sources such as Quantum Dots (QDs) and nitrogen vacancy (NV) in diamond, as well as the study of how these sources can interface with systems relevant to quantum communication.
Andor imaging EMCCDs and gated ICCDs detectors are also at the forefront of quantum science research, in particular photon-entanglement experiments.Contact our application specialists Browse application resources
Advanced material science plays a key role in the development of efficient renewable energy harvesting systems including solar/photovoltaic cells, as well the development of more efficient energy storage solutions which include the implementation of novel nano/micro-structures and novel catalysts in batteries.Contact our application specialists Browse application resources
Nanomaterials and nanostructures have found numerous applications in the field of life science. The development of brighter, more stable and lower toxicity optical probes (based for example on quantum dots) greatly benefit Biomedical imaging applications, while functionalised nanostructures development provide targeted drug delivery and therapeutics platforms.Contact our application specialists Browse application resources
The understanding and control of the interaction between metal or semiconductor (surface) plasmons and photons can be exploited for a number of applications including high sensitivity label-free chemical sensing, using for example Surface-Enhanced (SERS) or Tip-Enhanced (TERS) Raman Spectroscopy.
Plasmonic metamaterials offer alternative solutions to chemical detection, but also are of interest for light manipulation or harvesting (in the context of renewable energy and solar cells for example) and biomedical applications.Contact our application specialists Browse application resources
Material science setups can be complemented by Andor’s high sensitivity and resolution Imaging EMCCD or sCMOS cameras than can provide additional spatial behaviour information on a wide range of microscopy setups. Asylum Research Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) systems provide complementary type of topological, nano-electrical, nano-mechanical or magnetic information. Oxford Instrument Nanoscience cryostats offer highly controlled environment for the low-temperature study of a wide range of materials including low-dimensional and semiconductor structures.
