Specifications include, but are not limited to:UniversitysNeedforSupplies/Services: The Raman microscope will be used for services in the Research Resources Center Electron Microscopy Service facility directed by Dr. Alan Nicholls. Both external and UIC customers will use the Raman microscope. 5.2 Supplies / Services Required : The Research Resources Center is looking to purchase a Raman microscope with the following minimum specifications: 5.2.1 Two excitation lasers at 532nm/50mW and 633nm/17mW. 5.2.2 Multichannel Detector working from 200 to 1100nm suitable for measurements in the UV, VIS and NIR. 5.2.3 Spectral resolution is an important performance consideration. The system should therefore have a spectral resolution dispersion of 0.53cm-1/pixel at 532nm and when using an 1800g/mm grating and 26 micron pixels CCD. 5.2.4 A four position Raleigh filter mount should be included which should be motorized and software controlled. 5.2.5 The cut-off of any visible and 785nm Raman filters must be better than 50cm-1 (all measured at 50% transmission). 5.2.6 The system must be delivered with a spectrograph with three detector ports capable of accommodating 3 detectors, simultaneously, in order to cover the full range from UV to IR (200nm to 2200nm). The instrument must be fully achromatic (without chromatic shift). Reflective optics are required to avoid any achromatism issues and cover the full range with optimum focusing on intermediate optics including the confocal hole and detector, to insure the best spatial and spectral resolution at all wavelengths. This operation must be obtained without requiring a change of spectrograph optics and be fully automated
