WITec has released a new Application Note that features measurements of semiconducting materials using 2D and 3D Raman imaging in combination with other techniques such as atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and second or third harmonic generation (SHG, THG) microscopy. See how correlative techniques can characterize crystallinity, topography, stress fields and other properties on materials such as silicon, gallium nitride and molybdenum disulfide.
To better serve our growing business in Japan, WITec K.K. has relocated the national office to Yokohama. Within a two-minute walk from the JR Kannai station and close to Yokohama Stadium, home of the Baystars baseball team, our new office is conveniently accessible from all over Japan.
In addition to delivering Raman imaging solutions with superior performance, customer satisfaction through excellent service and support is the key to WITec’s success. The new office provides a great environment for pursuing these objectives.
Our team is ready to work with existing and potential customers in the new equipment demonstration/sample measurement laboratory on their individual applications and requirements. A meeting and training space will host workshops and serve as a conference room for Japan’s Raman imaging community.
We look forward to welcoming you into our new home.

Physics World Magazine conducted a wide-ranging interview with WITec Co-founder and Director of Research and Development, Olaf Hollricher, in the days leading up to the MRS Fall Meeting and Exhibit at the end of last year.
The article, Confocal Raman microscopy: correlate and accumulate, highlights the versatility of the technique and the modular architecture of WITec’s microscopes. It describes how Raman imaging can be integrated with other methods within one instrument to provide a more comprehensive picture of a sample’s chemical composition and distribution. The potential of this approach, known as correlative microscopy, and the growing demand for it in the marketplace are examined. Dr. Hollricher also discusses the seemingly contradictory challenges that have been overcome in pursuit of both capability and accessibility. Two of WITec’s standout innovations, TrueSurface topographic Raman imaging, and the ParticleScout microparticle analysis tool are detailed as well.

WITec's ParticleScout has been nominated for a SelectScience Scientists' Choice Award in the category of Best New Spectroscopy Product. We're very excited to be in the competition and thankful to our customers around the world for their enthusiasm.
The Scientists' Choice Awards are presented annually to recognize the laboratory products introduced in the preceding year that helped researchers the most in the course of their work. Scientists themselves directly nominate, review, and vote for the winners.
WITec's ParticleScout is an automated microparticle anaylsis tool for the alpha300 line of confocal Raman microscopes that can find, classify and identify microplastics and other particles with industry-leading speed and precision. If you'd like to voice your support for this revolutionary and timely technology, please vote through the link below. All participants are entered into a drawing for the chance to win a $500/£400/450€ Amazon Gift Card. Voting ends February 21st.
WITec GmbH, industry-leading manufacturer of 3D confocal Raman imaging and correlative microscopy systems, has updated its organizational structure in France to streamline communication and better leverage in-house technical expertise.
Dr. Maxime Tchaya, a longtime member of the WITec team, will manage the French market directly. His responsibilities include all sales activities and the coordination of technical support, equipment demonstrations and sample measurements.
Dr. Tchaya is native French speaker who began with WITec as an applications scientist before bringing his thorough, practical knowledge of WITec microscopes to the sales department. This experience will enable him to precisely address the requirements of the local client base while providing them with a direct conduit to WITec’s research and development group.
