What if my students or I have questions about Reva?
The Reva educational
introductory material. Additionally, we have produced tutorial videos
that will go through the process step by step.
Reva require changing my curriculum?
The Reva package comes with set, professionally authored experiments to learn from. Only one new lab experiment per course will be necessary to seamlessly introduce the device.
Why should my students use Reva versus other Raman equipment?
Most students don't have the opportunity to use
Raman spectroscopy until graduate school. Most Raman spectrophotometers are made exclusively for research use. However, the Reva package has
developed for educational purposes and is completely student-friendly.
How do I know my students will be safe using Reva?
Reva is a Class 1 laser device, meaning no safety training is required. The three safety interlocks
ensure that the laser will not operate unless the machine is closed.
Will Reva help
my students enter
Yes, Reva is tremendously helpful to any student seeking to enter the workforce. Having knowledge of Raman spectroscopy (as opposed to the archaic methods taught in most curricula) will make students much more of an asset to almost any technical workplace.
Reva's ball probe allows the laser light to go directly into the sample. This means that the results will be consistent and uniform, regardless of how many times a sample is tested.
