TSI Purchases Enwave Optronics
SHOREVIEW, Minn., March 4, 2014 — Precision metrology company TSI Inc. has acquired Irvine, Calif.-based Enwave Optronics for an undisclosed amount.
The acquisition includes Enwave’s Raman spectroscopy technology, which adds to TSI’s existing ChemLogix group of analytical chemistry equipment and its laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technology that was developed by Photon Machines.
“The Raman technology expands our chemical characterization business so that now we can address molecular-based as well as elemental-based material analysis,” said Tom Kennedy, president of TSI.

- raman spectroscopy
- That branch of spectroscopy concerned with Raman spectra and used to provide a means of studying pure rotational, pure vibrational and rotation-vibration energy changes in the ground level of molecules. Raman spectroscopy is dependent on the collision of incident light quanta with the molecule, inducing the molecule to undergo the change.
