Witec Workshop – May 24th, 2013

WITec 3D Raman Imaging Meets AFM, SNOM and Profilometry Workshop. May 24th, 2013 – Université de Montréal

This workshop will give a detailed introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations relevant to confocal Raman and Scanning Probe Microscopy (AFM, SNOM, Pulsed Force Mode). Our Speakers will cover several aspects of Raman and SPM imaging and their fields of applications. An extensive system demonstration gives the participants the opportunity to see this knowledge applied using an alpha300 RSA (combined AFM & SNOM Confocal Raman Microscope).

Scientists interested in how to chemically identify and image the compounds of a sample at the highest spatial resolution are invited to participate. Typical research fields for confocal Raman imaging are nanotechnology, pharmaceutics and cosmetics, materials and polymer sciences, archaeology and geoscience, forensics, coatings, thin films and all fields where a clear identification of the distribution of chemical compounds is a necessity.
