DXR Confocal Raman Microscope

Thermo Scientific DXR Confocal Raman Microscope

Thermo Scientific DXR Confocal Raman Microscope

The Thermo Scientific DXR Confocal Raman microscope is a powerful molecular characterization tool for both inorganic and organic materials. With both 780 nm and 532 nm laser excitation kits, it is especially useful for carbon materials (graphite, graphene, carbon nanotubes, etc.), polymers, and battery electrode materials.
