New perspectives in nano-analysis with correlative 3D Raman imaging – workshop and

Correlative Raman AFM Imaging of Polymers.
Correlative microscopy combines the advantages of different techniques to facilitate an enhanced characterization of samples. Scanning electron microscopy and Atomic Force Microscopy are powerful methods for investigating surface structures on the nanometer scale. Confocal Raman imaging is a non-destructive, label-free approach that can chemically identify the molecules in a sample in 3D. The presentation will show the hybrid techniques which can be realized with the WITec confocal Raman imaging microscope platform with an accompanying theoretical introduction and examples of measurements.
