Fundamentals and Applications of Raman, TERS, and AFM-Raman


May 11, 2016
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Overview of the Workshop

This 1-day workshop, with presentations from leading scientists in both academia and industry, will demonstrate how Raman spectroscopy is uniquely capable of addressing challenges across a variety of disciplines.  The state-of-the-art in Raman, AFM-Raman and key examples from the fields of 2D materials, biomaterials, forensics, and pharmaceuticals will be discussed.  This workshop is ideal for both active Raman users and those not familiar with the techniques that would like to understand what Raman and AFM-Raman can offer.
