FORAM Raman Spectra Libraries



Users of the Foster + Freeman Foram and ffTA Foram X3 module can further enhance the capability of their instruments through the addition of Raman databases for the identification of unknown materials and compounds.


A comprehensive collection of libraries has been compiled by S.T. Japan and formatted for use with the Foram and ffTA systems. In total over 9,000 spectra of common and specialist materials are available divided into 20 categories.


Using the Foram software it is possible to search against spectral libraries providing details of the exact composition as well as additional information such as manufacturer, lot number, appearance, purity, IUPAC name, common name, and other details.
