Invitation to 'Introduction to Confocal Raman Microscopy' workshop

(Nanowerk News) Confocal Raman Imaging is one of the most powerful characterization techniques available today as it allows the chemical identification of a sample's compounds while also imaging their distribution along with various other chemical properties nondestructively at the highest resolution.
WITec invites you to their "Introduction to Confocal Raman Microscopy" workshop in Ulm, Germany, on October 7-8, 2008.
The workshop will cover several recent developments in confocal Raman Imaging and its applications in the pharmaceutical industry, materials science and life science. It will include presentations by experts in the field in addition to extended hands-on and sample analysis sessions.
The workshop will give a detailed introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations relevant to confocal Raman microscopy. Speakers from universities and industry will cover several aspects of modern Raman imaging and its fields of applications. An extensive hands-on session gives the participants the opportunity to apply this knowledge and to evaluate their individual samples. 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 pharmaceutics and cosmetics, materials and polymer sciences, archaeology and geology, forensics, coatings, thin films and all fields where a clear identification of the distribution of chemical compounds is a necessity.
Please download the workshop-brochure at http://www.witec.de/en/eventsseminars/files/FlyerRamanIntro08.pdf for a detailed program and registration information.
This workshop is a great opportunity for in-depth discussions on how to chemically identify and image your samples at the highest resolution.
