StreamHR™: generate high resolution chemical images
Fast, high resolution mapping
With StreamHR, you can rapidly image your samples at the highest possible spatial resolution. Only the inherent diffraction limit of the light restricts the resolution, not the instrument.
Chemical images with the ultimate detail
If your samples have very small features you will need the best possible spatial resolution to reveal them. StreamHR carefully scans the laser spot using the small step size (down to 50 nm) capability of Renishaw's High Speed Encoded Stage (HSES). This produces chemical images with the highest possible detail.
An efficient technique
StreamHR moves the sample through the laser spot in small, user-definable steps. For the highest resolution images, use a high magnification (high numerical aperture) objective lens.
StreamHR maps efficiently because sample movement, data collection, and data readout occur simultaneously, rather than in discrete sequential steps. This gives you the images you need in the shortest possible time.
Even faster Raman images
StreamHR Rapide enables you to collect data at faster than 1000 spectra per second. So you can produce highly detailed Raman images with extreme speed.

Product note: StreamHR™ and StreamLine™ imaging technology
This document contains information about Renishaw’s StreamHR™ and StreamLine™ imaging technology. With this feature you can perform high-speed Raman or photoluminescence (PL) imaging to characterise your samples. Both imaging methods save time by scanning the excitation laser over the sample, while continuously streaming spectral data from the CCD detector. This gives you Raman or PL images in the shortest possible time.
