Workshop at Virginia Tech, USA

Confocal Raman Imaging Workshop

  • The workshop on Wednesday, 30th of October, is open for all scientists interested in Raman imaging. It will give an introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations relevant to confocal Raman imaging along with associated techniques suitable for correlative measurements, such as AFM, SNOM and SEM. Scientists from Virginia Tech will cover various aspects of Raman imaging in their fields of application. Speakers from WITec will demonstrate the latest advances in instrumentation development, including equipment demonstrations.

    Please register here if you want to participate.

    Attendance is free of charge.
