Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Raman boost: Low-cost solutions

Arranging nanoparticles on nanowires can enhance surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) by exploiting electromagnetic fields to boost scattering and thus sensitivity of standard dyes, such as R6G, by many times, according to researchers in India.

Stimulated Raman scattering microscopy has been used for the first time to identify five different high production‐volume polymer types in microplastics extracted from environmental or consumer product samples.

A three-hour test can reveal whether a new antibiotic is likely to retain its efficacy against a pathogenic bacteria, thanks to research that enlisted Raman spectroscopy and other techniques.

Plasmonic gratings of rectangular groove profile with gradient in the groove width perform as unique SERS substrates by simultaneously confining multiple laser wavelengths within the visible and near-infrared regime inside their rectangular nanotrenches.

Correlative Raman Imaging and SEM (RISE Microscopy) - New Approaches in Chemical and Structural Analysis

Date: May 15, 2018 - 14:00

Correlative microscopy combines the advantages of different techniques to facilitate an enhanced characterization of samples. Scanning electron microscopy is a powerful method 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. RISE microscopy integrates both methods within a common vacuum chamber for fast and accessible measurements. Software correlates data acquired from...
