RamanPi is open source project of Raman Spectrometer that can be made with many 3d printable parts. It is a low cost way to get a spectroscope for your laboratory or school and learn / teach about fundamental physics, chemistry and material sciences. It is powered by Raspberry Pi and most non-printable parts can be sourced off-the-shelf. The entire system is housed in standard PC ITX case.
Goals of the RamanPi project:
- Make it Open.. Everything.. All of it..
- Make it 3D Printable.
- Make it modular and easy to upgrade.
- Make it as easy to build as possible.
- Make it easy to customize and open to improvement.
- Use only commonly available off the shelf components whenever possible.
- Have a remote interface that will allow it to be controlled and viewed from anywhere.
- Compare the spectra to the online internet spectral databases.
- Provide the capability to log data to remote databases, share with friends and colleagues..
- Not be just another open source spectrometer..
- Make it easy to use and intuitive.
- Make it attractive with an elegant design..
- Make it useful and just cool to have!
