Raman Spectra Databases

New Raman spectra are continuously added to this database making it the largest and most advanced Raman collection world-wide. Use the spectra with your Raman bench top instrument or your Raman hand-held instrument.

  • Core spectral range 3200 cm-1 to 200 cm-1 (except P/N L60122, L60124) with most spectra with a range of 4000 cm-1 to 200 cm-1
  • The samples were measured with excitation laser wavelength of 1064, 785, 532 or 488 nm
