Spatially Offset Raman Spectroscopy (SORS)

Spatially Offset Raman Spectroscopy, is a novel method for accurate and robust chemical analysis of objects where the contents are obscured by an opaque layer or container.

SORS Explanation

There are many applications of SORS for subsurface analysis and some of these are discussed in our Downloads section.  Applications include:

The method requires no prior knowledge of the container/surface layer, does not require physically touching or changing the object and can probe to depths of many millimetres. Cobalt develops SORS instruments, including the Triton system, for researchers and for applications-specific commercial use.

More information is available in our Technical and Application Notes Section.
