Thorlabs Bolsters Raman Spectroscopy Capabilities with Acquisition

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Thorlabs has acquired Coda Devices, a manufacturer of Raman-based products for chemical analysis. The company, which is based in Menlo Park, Calif., with a research and production center in Moscow, will be integrated into Thorlabs’ Spectroscopy and Technology Group in Munich, Germany.

Coda Devices’ Raman spectrometers are able to identify the relative concentrations of up to four substances out of a current library of 3600 known signatures in less than 15 seconds, according to the company. The analysis can be performed through any transparent material, which has the benefit of preventing contact with potentially deadly substances, such as fentanyl, and also allows the technology to be used for in-line quality control.

Anatoly Konukhov, CEO of Coda Devices, said, “Thorlabs’ proficiency in the field of optics will boost and drastically enhance the technology developed by the Coda team, increase areas of application, and subsequently expand the market reach of our products.”

GLOSSARY
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.
