THOR system

Configuration, specification and performance

THOR - advanced confocal Raman microscope based on our patented mirrorless technology in Raman beam delivery optical path.

THOR ideally suited for most sophisticated applications in Raman microscopy:
- fast 3D Raman imaging;
- SERS imaging;
- polarized Raman imaging;
- low frequincy Raman measurements;
- stokes/antistokes Raman measurements;
- fast optical shutter technology (<1ms).

THOR technology covered by 4 international patents licensed by Lightnovo.

qRICO solution

THOR can be upgraded for quantitative Raman based crystallographic orientation mapping (qRICO technology).
We develop qRICO technology in collaboration with our partner Xnovo Technology ApS.

Based on our collaboration setup, Lightnovo develops and manufactures qRICO devices, support it with polarised Raman data acquisition and data analysis software. Xnovo Technology develops crystallographic data reconstruction and crystallographic data analysis software. Xnovo Technology also responsible for commercialisation and sales of qRICO solution.
