SERSTECH AB: Serstech awarded patent for electronic focus

10.April 2018 at 13:16:00 CET

The patent covers the use of electronically focus-tunable lenses in Raman instruments and will, once implemented, bring Serstech's hand-held Raman instrument another step closer to the large, non-portable instruments that reside in laboratories.

The electronically focus-tunable lenses can automatically, and within milliseconds, locate and set the laser focus on the point in the sample where the Raman signal is the strongest. In addition to this autofocus capability, the technology can shift the focus point side-ways and hence allow a much larger sample area to be measured and multiple measurement points to be included automatically.

The solution will enable more accurate measurements, better capability to identify components of a mixture of chemicals and better ability to handle measurements of samples inside containers with thick walls.

Serstech is currently in discussions with possible suppliers of the focus-tunable lenses and the launch of the new technology is planned for 2019.
