Workshop at George Washington University

Correlative Raman Imaging Workshop

  • May 2nd, George Washington University, Washington DC


    This workshop will provide a detailed introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations of confocal Raman imaging along with techniques suitable for correlative measurements, such as AFM, SEM and SNOM.

    The George Washington University and WITec invite scientists interested in chemically identifying and imaging compounds at the highest spatial and spectral resolution.

    Speakers from prestigious institutes will cover various aspects of Raman imaging in their fields of application. Speakers from WITec will demonstrate the latest advances in instrument and Equipment development.

    The number of participants is limited, so please register early to reserve your place. Attendance is free of charge.

  • Program

    The workshop is open to all scientists interested in correlative Raman imaging.
