10th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium
News Jul 12, 2013
WITec will host the 10th Symposium on "Confocal Raman Imaging". The Raman Spectroscopy community will meet from September 30th to October 2nd, 2013 in Ulm, Germany.
The symposium will cover various aspects of modern Raman microscopy and will provide deep insights into confocal Raman imaging and its applications.
This year's invited speakers are distinguished experts in the field of Raman spectroscopy from academia and industry.
Their talks will highlight a broad range of Raman spectroscopy applications in life science, nanotechnology, energy storage, extraterrestrial materials, nano carbon and graphene research.
In addition technical talks about the general principles, microscope configurations and resolutions will give the participants a deeper understanding of confocal Raman microscopy.
Another important part of the symposium will be the contributed poster and talk session giving the participants the opportunity to present and discuss their own scientific results on confocal Raman imaging.
Participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for the poster session.
This three-day symposium is an excellent occasion for scientists and engineers to further their knowledge of this highly valuable technique in order to meet emerging requirements in the chemical identification and imaging of various compounds.
Typical research fields for confocal Raman imaging include pharmaceutics and cosmetics, materials and polymer sciences, medical and life science, archaeology and geology, forensics, coatings, thin-films and all fields in which clear identification of the distribution of chemical compounds is a necessity.
