Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) is a powerful analytical technique with submicron spatial resolution, ppm sensitivity, and the ability to detect both elemental and molecular species on surfaces. One limitation of TOF-SIMS is that spectra are often difficult to interpret, especially for real-world industrial samples that have a complex mixture of chemicals on the surface. The TOF-SIMS spectrum contains the fragmentation pattern of all the different molecular species on the surface added together. The recent development of parallel imaging MS/MS has greatly simplified the interpretation of TOF-SIMS spectra. By selecting a single precursor ion from the complex TOF-SIMS spectrum and fragmenting it by collision induced dissociation (CID), the clean and unique fragmentation pattern makes identification easy. Several industrial applications will be discussed that demonstrate how MS/MS greatly extends the analytical capability of the TOF-SIMS technique.

RISE – Raman Imaging and Scanning Electron – microscopy is a correlative approach that combines molecular and ultrastructural analysis. With this hybrid technique, information on the chemical composition of a sample provided by the optical Raman microscope is overlaid onto structural features imaged with a high resolution scanning electron microscope. Both methods can be controlled with software and the correlation carried out while the sample remains under vacuum. The integration of both techniques within a single instrument eliminates the necessity of manually locating the same measurement position, a notoriously time-consuming process with separate instruments.
In this webinar, the principles of state-of-the-art confocal Raman imaging as a tool for the analysis of molecular characteristics of a sample will be presented, then the manner in which this information can be linked to structural information acquired with scanning electron microscopy will be demonstrated. The advantages of seamless correlative investigation will be described and shown with several examples.

Spectra Research Corporation (SRC) is pleased to announce an upcoming webcast which will offer a comprehensive overview of the technology and methods of confocal Raman microscopy including 3D correlative Raman imaging integrated with SEM or AFM.
This powerful and increasingly common technique can characterize the components of a sample by looking at the unique “fingerprint” its molecular bonds show as they scatter light. We aim to convey its capability and versatility while making it more accessible. Application examples will focus on cell and tissue research, diagnostics, pharmaceutics and materials science. The non-destructive, label-free and convenient nature of Raman microscopy will be emphasized, showing how samples can be rapidly investigated without specialized, if any, sample preparation. The intuitive software routines for post-processing and data evaluation will also be described, along with the advantages of correlative techniques for structural and molecular analysis. There will be a short introduction from WITec followed by a presentation by Professor Dr. Klaus Gerwert, Chair of the Department of Biophysics at Ruhr-University Bochum, who will present specific approaches and application examples.
During this webcast you will learn/the speakers will address:
The theoretical basis and associated hardware and software related to confocal Raman microscopy
Possibilities for Raman investigations including several application examples from various fields
Correlative Raman imaging and the value of seeing a sample with different methods to understand in more completely
The webcast will last for 60 minutes and there will be an opportunity to ask your questions during the live broadcast! Unable to join the live event? Watch on-demand. Register now to ensure that you receive information on how to gain access after the live event.

WITec’s award-winning TrueSurface Microscopy allows confocal Raman imaging along heavily inclined or very rough samples with the surface held in constant focus while maintaining the highest confocality. The core element of this revolutionary imaging mode is an integrated sensor for optical profilometry. It is directly installed at the microscope turret, which facilitates user-friendly and convenient operation.
WITec presents a new operating concept with the powerful and intuitive Suite FIVE. Sophisticated features and hands-on control transform the user experience, enabling the researcher to move from setup to results with unprecedented ease. Suite FIVE provides an integrated tool for data acquisition, evaluation and post-processing that enables researchers to quickly extract key information from their experiments. All Raman, AFM, SNOM and WITec correlative microscopy measurement modes are supported.
