Workshop: Advanced Applications of Infrared & Raman Spectroscopy

April 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

Join us to learn about Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy techniques for materials research in half-day seminar. Lunch included.

 You will learn how to:

  • Optimize FTIR spectrometer settings to get best results
  • Characterize chemical composition of  thin films on metallic and non-metallic substrates
  • Monitor fast chemical reactions, study orientation of polymer chains, identify defects and contamination using IR and Raman microspectroscopy

Examples of applications will include surface chemistry during atomic layer deposition, electrochemistry, multilayer polymer films composition, and reverse engineering.

Register for the event here.

Questions can be directed to Carrie Donley (cdonley@email.unc.edu).

Raman Spectroscopy Tutorial

January 29, 2019 January 30, 2019

Raman Spectroscopy has gained much attention in the past 25 years as a material analytics and diagnostics method, often used as a complement to diffraction or electron microscopy techniques. This interest is triggered by Raman being a (mostly) non-destructive measurement that can be obtained with easy-to-use, tabletop equipment. The Raman signal is a type of inelastic scattering from molecular or crystal vibrations, and as such it is a fingerprint of the state the solid assumes. Any changes in composition, phase, mechanical properties (among others) would in fact leave a trace in the Raman spectral signature.

The course is organized as follows: The theory of Raman spectroscopy is first detailed, focusing on the identification and assignment of Raman vibrations. Then, information on Raman spectroscopic equipment and their working principles is given, including details on spectral fitting procedures. Finally, the course is completed by several examples of application of Raman spectroscopy on ceramic, semiconductor and polymeric samples.

Confocal Raman Spectroscopy Short Course

The Confocal Raman short course includes lectures covering an introduction to the Raman spectrometry and Confocal Raman spectroscopy technique, an overview of the principles and operation of the Raman, as well as applications such as Raman on liquid and solids. Also, there will be hands-on demonstrations of these applications on the Horiba Xplora Confocal Raman. To ensure each student receives a maximum amount of time on the Raman, the course will be limited to 4 participants. For more details and to register, please visit the short course website.  

Raman Spectroscopy Workshop at Harvard

Horiba Scientific and Harvard’s Center for Nanoscale Systems will be hosting a two day Raman spectroscopy workshop May 15 – 16.  The lectures will be focused on Raman spectroscopy of 2D materials, but anyone with interest in learning the fundamentals and applications of Raman spectroscopy in greater detail should attend.

There will be a poster session and cocktail reception the evening of May 15th.  Please consider submitting a poster to help foster discussion about the topics that interest you and the challenges that you face in your research.  Poster abstracts should be sent to joanne.lowry@horiba.com.

David Tuschel from Horiba Scientific will be presenting the lectures at the workshop.  David has more than 30 years of experience in optical characterization of materials.  David shares responsibility with Fran Adar also from Horiba for authoring the Molecular Spectroscopy Workbench, which appears regularly in Spectroscopy magazine.

Since space in the workshop is limited there is a small ticket fee to discourage no shows.  Tickets are available here.
