ISI develop AI tool for Raman Analysis

Posted on: 19/10/2017

See our new article examining how the latest Artificial Intelligence tools can be used, to identify Raman spectra, published in the Royal Society of Chemistry Analyst journal. Not only did the software outperform traditional SVM techniques. It also demonstrated no requirement to pre process of the data before the analysis was completed. A pre print of the article can be found here:

ISI MiniSpec Drying Chill

Posted on: 22/09/2017

See our new video, showing the ISI Miniature spectrometer measure the drying process of a chilli.
As spectrometer technology improves it has become more accessible to a range of markets. Including areas such as agriculture and education. ISI Miniature spectrometer is low cost (<£ 800) and ideally suited to a number of these tasks.
To demonstrate it use ISI have measure the drying process of a chilli.
The chilli was measured over an extended period of time with...Categories: Blog, Miniature Spectrometer, Spectrometer

HES Spectrometer Flat Field Correction

Posted on: 13/06/2017

See our latest article discussing flat field correction in our HES spectrometer page.
Flat field correction is a well none technique applied to a variety of spectral measurement systems. Its influence is critical in our HES spectrometers due to the Fourier nature of the device.
Our latest azom article discusses this effect and how to correct in our instruments. This is key for Raman observations when trying to identifying trace species which could be masked by unwanted instrument effects.

White light correction of Miniature spectrometer

Posted on: 31/05/2017

ISI publish a new article describing the white light calibration and the effect of etaloning on a spectrometer.
The calibration of any spectral measurement system is critical to the performance of the device. In the our latest article, we describe the effect of etaloning with a mini spectrometer. How this can be removed, by using for example a windowless detector and its effect on the data returned by a given instrument.
