Klar uses a patented method to maintain focus on irregular surfaces. As the samples are scanned, an in-focus, two dimensional spectral map of the surface is obtained.


Typical scans contain over 250,000 spectra, each with up to a thousand samples (wavelength, PL intensity) in the visible-near IR. False color maps of the peak intensity and the wavelength (or energy) where it occurs are easily displayed using Klar’s own analysis software.
