Forensic ScienceCRAIC microspectrometers are used to compare known and questioned trace evidence, including textile fibres, glass fragments and paint chips, as well as questioned documents and currencies. Microspectrometers use multiple spectral techniques to analyse the evidence.ChemistryCRAIC microspectrometers are used in the development of new materials and the characterization of their optical properties. Spectroscopic techniques like this are useful as it requires extremely small amounts of samples that can be analysed under controlled conditions.GeologyCRAIC scientific instruments are used for qualification and quality control of coal, coke and petroleum source rock by international standards such as ISO and ASTM. Analysis of geological samples is also done by Raman, UV-vis, photoluminescence and fluorescence microspectroscopy and imaging.Life SciencesCRAIC microspectrometers are used to study and characterize the optical properties of bird feathers, butterfly wings and to study colour vision and how it works on the microscale. CRAIC instruments are also used in the development and quality control of pharmaceuticals.Flat Panel DisplaysCRAIC instruments are used in the development and quality control testing of the latest technology displays. Able to measure the intensity and colour of the smallest pixels in a display, CRAIC microspectrometers are fast and reliable both on and off the production line.NanotechnologyCRAIC instruments are used to characterise the optical responses of new materials and devices. The optical properties of not only the materials themselves, but their nanoscale structures yields information about the structures and their environment. CRAIC Technologies devices are perfect for this type of micro-scale analysis.
