Solid Sampling

Ocean Optics offers an extensive range of accessories for the sampling of liquids, gases, plasmas and solids. For solids, reflectance and transmittance measurements are the primary techniques employed, although thin film measurement and laser-based technologies such as Raman analysis and LIBS are also effective.

With solid sampling accessories such as integrating spheres, filter holders and optical stages – plus reflection probes – users can evaluate both physical and chemical properties of solids. For example, with reflectance measurements, users can compare objects with different colors, textures or even thickness. Also, reflectance can offer information about the material form which the solid is made, since light that is not reflected from a sample is absorbed due to its chemical composition.

Solid Sampling Applications

  • Biomaterials analysis
  • Chemical composition analysis
  • Color measurement
  • Feasibility testing
  • Materials science education
  • Semiconductor materials analysis

  • Metal and gemological materials testing
  • Optical materials characterization
  • Photovoltaics QA/QC
  • Thin film thickness determination
