Almax easyLab can select its diamonds for low fluorescence. Standard measurements include laser excitation at 532 nm and covers fluorescence background in the range of 542 to 608 nm (Raman shifts between 1000 and 3000 cm-1). Measurements for different wavelength ranges can be made available on request. In special cases customers can select their own diamonds for low fluorescence using their own measurement set-up.
- Type IIac Raman ultra-low fluorescence
All diamonds to be used for anvil manufacture are examined under a polarising microscope for birefringence. Diamonds with significant birefringence discontinuity, typical of inclusions, etc. are rejected. In addition diamonds can be selected for ultralow birefringence. Total birefringence is measured using crossed polarisers, a waveplate and matched to specifications. Normally:
- Low birefringence <0.0001
- Ultra low birefringence <0.00005
