Ultrafast Hyperspectral Imager - RIMA NANO™ from Photon etc.

The RIMA NANO™ hyperspectral imager available from Photon etc. is an advanced, ultrafast Raman imager that comes with various excitation wavelengths. The system is designed for studying nanomaterials from graphene to carbon nanotubes, making it an excellent tool for universities, research institutes, and industrial laboratories.

Key Features

The main features of the RIMA NANO are:

  • Non-destructive analysis
  • High spatial and spectral resolution
  • Fast global mapping (non scanning)
  • Megapixel images in minutes
  • Stokes and anti-stokes
  • Complete system with source, microscope, camera, filter, and software



hyperspectral imagerMono- and bilayer graphene - Investigation of CVD monolayer graphene with bilayer islands is performed with RIMA™. Large area maps of defects, number of layers and stacking order is used to rigorously study the growth conditions.


hyperspectral imager

Graphene CVD on copper - RIMA™ is used to thoroughly evaluate the structural properties of graphene grown in different condition. The intrinsic specificity of Raman scattering combined with global imaging capabilities allows users to assess large of defects, number of layers and stacking order.

hyperspectral imager

Raman multiplexing - RIMA™ is used for the development and characterization of carbon nanotubes based Raman nanoprobes. Raman hyperspectral imaging is employed for efficient multiplexing and biodetection.
