Thermo Fisher Scientific has organised a free seminar on Raman spectroscopic techniques. Aimed at scientists looking to expand their analysis capabilities in either routine or research laboratories, the seminar, entitled Introducing Raman Spectroscopy, will take place on 23 April 2009 at Thermo Fisher's Hemel Hempstead facility.
The interactive seminar will initially explain the theoretical basis of Raman spectroscopy and will then set out to describe how the technique can provide solutions for routine and research spectroscopic applications. Raman spectroscopy is a versatile technique with applications in several areas including pharmaceutical, semiconductor, forensics, gems and minerals, polymers and protective coatings.
Event highlights include an opportunity to see Raman systems in operation and the opportunity to ask questions about specific applications and choosing the right technology for a laboratory. The concept of using different experimental configurations to maximise the quality of data will be covered, together with other complementary spectroscopic techniques. Raman sample handling techniques and methods will be described and novel data analysis tools will be explained.
