BaySpec, Inc., founded in 1999 with 100% manufacturing in the USA (San Jose, California), is a vertically integrated spectral sensing company. The company designs, manufactures and markets advanced spectral instruments, including UV-VIS-NIR-SWIR spectrometers, benchtop and portable NIR/SWIR and Raman analyzers, confocal Raman microscopes, hyperspectral imagers, mass spectrometers, and OEM spectral engines and components. R&D Applications include:
Materials: Material characterization is an ideal application area for Raman spectroscopy, due to its high chemical specificity and rapid, non-contact measurement. Solid, liquid, or gaseous, nearly all materials possess a unique Raman spectral fingerprint. The technique can be readily scaled to microscopic approaches, allowing interrogation of extremely small volumes and samples, such as nanomaterials. Characterization of nanomaterials is critical to determining structural and conformational properties. Raman spectroscopy is a highly efficient technique to study the electronic properties, compositions, and mechanical stresses in these materials, all of which can manifest in Raman band shape and frequency shift.
Semiconductor: Raman spectroscopy has proven to be one of the most effective tools for characterization of semiconductor properties and for manufacturing process/quality control because materials such as Si, SiGe, InGaAs, GaAs, GaN, and graphene exhibit precise, distinct Raman bands. Applied in a microscopic approach, the Raman technique has been successfully implemented to determine microstructure composition on thin-films, strain in the multilayer device, and to identify defects across the wafer surface.
Process/Reaction: Unlike conventional UV-Vis and NIR monitoring techniques, Raman spectroscopy provides molecular specificity in real-time measurements of gas, liquid, and solid samples, both natural and synthetic. These attributes are responsible for the emerging reliance on Raman spectroscopy for a number of online process and reaction monitoring applications. Numerous sampling options, including fiber optic probes with long reach and stand-off probes for measuring inside containers and vessels make the technique adaptable to a myriad of environments and conditions.
Surface-Enhanced Raman: Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) utilizes specialized metal substrates to allow Raman signal enhancement up to 10 orders of magnitude. This phenomenon occurs when the molecules of interest are in very close proximity to the metal substrate, and is generally used for evaporated solutions or particle-surface characterization. The enhanced Raman signal with SERS has extended its applications in many fields, such as biological studies, to quantify trace substances or identify very small structures such as cell surface proteins. Intracellular SERS is also possible, via the injection of metallic nanoparticles, to study internal structures and analytes.
When facing the unique requirements of the scientific, industrial and healthcare sectors, sometimes something more than an off-the-shelf solution is required. Bibby Scientific designs and manufacturers a diverse selection of bespoke equipment, with each instrument specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual customers. By using its own proven designs as a basis and adding alterations, Bibby can produce solutions which directly meet with customer specs, ensuring that they get the results they require in the most accurate and reliable way possible.
The company’s expertise, particularly in the fields of temperature control, agitation, signal detection and imaging, means that each and every instrument is fine-tuned to ensure the best possible levels of performance. Temperature control, both below and above ambient to 0.1 of a degree, precise agitation and mixing to speeds over 2,000 rpm, and the incorporation of digital imaging are just a selection of the technologies that can be included.

In 1984, Buck Scientific developed its first new instrument, the Model 200 Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Since then, our engineers have continued to develop new instruments based on the philosophy of providing excellent analytical performance and quality at an affordable price.
Our Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers and Infrared Spectrophotometers are built in Norwalk CT. Both instruments have many happy users. It is very common for people not to need any servicing for 10 or 15 years after purchasing them. They are workhorses built to withstand tortuously corrosive environment like plating shops and mines. The infrared is loved by many around the world who do not have adequate air conditioning to run an FTIR. In these cases we are often their last hope, and the M530 costs about 1/2 the price of an equivalent FTIR, so customers save money and solve their problem at the same time.
What can be achieved with a flame photometer has been redefined by BWB Technologies. With unrivalled accuracy, low cost and ease of use the BWB flame photometer is not only the best flame photometer available but is the first real alternative to AAS (atomic absorption spectrometry) and ICP (induced coupling plasma) for measuring Lithium Li, Sodium Na, Potassium K, Calcium Ca & Barium Ba.
BWB Technologies are an American owned, UK company focused on the design, manufacture and sales of award winning flame photometers. Drawing on an Anglo-American team of leading industry specialists we strive to create high quality, cost effective products that redefine what is achievable with a low temperature flame. From a manufacturing plant in Newbury, England, BWB Technologies have introduced a series of flame photometer products, and accessories, which exceed existing expectations in terms of specification, usability, accuracy, reporting, build quality and value for money.
BWB Technologies are the only flame photometer manufacturer to have dedicated sales and technical support offices in Europe, The America’s and the Middle East. We offer an unsurpassed level of support with a 24/7 support service and real people answering customer calls.
We were not content to build an instrument that was just better than the other flame photometers – the BWB flame photometer is a cost effective, accurate and reliable alternative to other technologies such as Inductively Coupled Plasma, ICP and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers (AAS). Now 80% of our customers already own an AAS or ICP, but choose to measure Lithium, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Barium with their BWB flame photometer rather than the more expensive and complex AAS or ICP.

Established in 1987, CITL specialises in the field of Cathodoluminescence / Analysis first explored and established by Cambridge University Department of Geology. Building on the Universtity’s research, CITL has implemented Optical Spectral Analysis (OSA) and Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (EDX). These enable CITL to scientifically measure the Optical spectra of specimen areas with slit sizes of just 100µm – i.e. 100/14 equalling 7 pixels. EDX offers the same facility but includes the x-ray peaks found and the % values (current minimum area is a spot of 50u). From this we will be able to assess reasonably accurate information about the periodic table elements revealed.
Our current system, the Mk5, incorporates all of these facilities.Subject to the Mk5 optical system selected, measurements can now be made of either translucent or solid specimens over an area up to 70mm x 50mm with a thickness up to 15mm.
Our Clients are located all around our Planet Earth and operate in a wide range of Scientific disciplines from Geology to Petrology, Mining to Material Processing, Gemmology to detailed scientific analysis, including contamination analysis.
