Workshop at UCLA, USA

The Full Spectrum of Raman Imaging Applications

  • The workshop on Confocal Raman Imaging will take place on Thursday, 14th of November, at the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI), UCLA, California. Invited speakers from around the US will present various aspects of Raman imaging in their respective fields of application. Scientists interested in chemically identifying and imaging compounds at the highest spatial and spectral resolution are invited to attend. During an instrument demonstration session, participants will be able to see WITec Raman microscopes in action.

    The number of participants is limited, so please register early to reserve your place. Attendance is free of charge.

    For more information, please have a look at the workshop flyer.
