Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium - The full spectrum of cutting-edge applications and techniques
(Nanowerk News) From September 26 – 27, 2012 the Raman Spectroscopy community will again meet in Ulm, Germany for the 9th Symposium on “Confocal Raman Imaging”. It will cover various aspects of modern Raman microscopy and will provide an introduction to Raman spectroscopy in general as well as operational principles and instrumentation relevant to the techniques.
As a special highlight each participant will this year receive a Springer Confocal Raman Microscopy Book along with the final registration.
The 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.
Prof. Sebastian Schlücker: The Principle of Raman Spectroscopy and its Application in Microscopy
Dr. Olaf Hollricher: Confocal Raman Microscopy: Instrumentation, Configurations and Resolution
Dr. Thomas Dieing: Combining Raman with Structural Surface Imaging Techniques
Dr. Thomas Beechem: Beyond Identification: Probing Band Structure, Strain and Layer Interactions in Bilayer Graphene via Raman Imaging
Dr. Juan Romero: Confocal Raman Imaging of Ceramic Materials: From Commercial Tiles to Single Isolated Nanoparticles
Dr. Barbara Cavalazzi: Raman Microscopy for Geobiology Applications
Prof. Diedrich Schmidt: Raman Microspectroscopy: Applications in Life Sciences
Dr. Klaus Wormuth: Improved Understanding of Controlled Drug Delivery Technologies via Raman Imaging

One addtional speaker will be selected from among the contributed abstracts for the poster session
An important part of the symposium will be a contributed poster session giving the participants the opportunity to present and discuss their scientific results on confocal Raman imaging.
Participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for the poster session by September 2nd 2012.
