What is spectroscopy?

Spectroscopy is an analytical method to study the interactions between particles by splitting light. This can be achieved by using a spectrometer, which can analyze a particle by the wavelength and frequency of light.

Malvern Panalytical offer a number of analytical products to solve the challenges of your particle characterization or material identification requirements. 

Near infrared Spectroscopy

Near-infrared spectroscopy is a highly flexible form of spectroscopic analysis and is a cost-effective solution for measuring materials to optimize processes.

The ASD range of near-infrared spectrometers and spectroradiometers are an ideal solution for material identification and analysis. The full-range and portable solutions from ASD cover the following spectroscopy techniques: 

  • UV Vis spectroscopy
  • NIR spectroscopy
  • SWIR (Short Wave Infrared) spectroscopy

Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy (MDRS)

Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy or MDRS ®, combines automated particle imaging and Raman microspectroscopy. This enables rapid, automated chemical and morphological characterization of the individual components in a multi-component sample.

The Morphologi 4-ID offers rapid, automated, component-specific particle characterization in a single, integrated platform. 

X-ray Spectroscopy

X-ray spectroscopy is used to identify elemental properties of a sample by measuring particles of light by the wavelengths in the X-ray portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.

There are two techniques of x-ray spectroscopy: Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy and Wavelength Dispersive Spectroscopy. Malvern Panalytical offer a number of X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy solutions for both qualitative and quantitative information on a sample.

Pulsed Fast Thermal Neutron Activation (PFTNA)

PFTNA uses spectroscopy techniques to interpret elemental concentrations. This technology is being increasingly used in a variety of industries to enable high speed, online process control.

The CNA range of cross-belt analyzers deliver highly representative elemental analyses for safe, robust in-line process control in real time.
