Rheometer accessory.

The Rheo-Raman accessory has been introduced for the company's Discovery hybrid rheometer (DHR) product line. This accessory combines a Raman spectrometer with the DHR to enable simultaneous collection of rheology and Raman spectroscopy data. This combination is said to allow for direct correlation between flow characteristics and the unique spectroscopic fingerprints of each material, including information about its chemical and morphological structure. Rheology is used to characterize material flow properties such as viscosity and viscoelastic parameters that are important predictors of processing behavior, product performance and consumer perception. Raman spectroscopy is a light-based molecular spectroscopy technique that reveals chemical bonds and molecular structure. The in-situ combination of these techniques will enable scientists to develop a deeper understanding of how chemical structure drives material properties. (TA Instruments)
