Applications of Raman Microscopy to Nanoscience
October 22-23, 2010
Argonne National Laboratory
Co-Organizers: David Gosztola (CNM) and Victor Maroni (CSE)
The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) hosted a workshop and training course covering the applications of Raman microscopy and spectroscopy to nanoscience and nanotechnology. Representatives from each of the five U.S. Dept. of Energy Nanoscale Science Research Centers presented examples of cutting-edge research that has taken place using their particular instrumentation, the capabilities of which varies at each Center. One day of invited scientific presentations covered nanoscale materials, nanoscale devices, and nanotechnology projects that have been advanced by exploiting, for example, confocal Raman microscopy and tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. The program also included a poster session and an additional half-day short course devoted to hands-on demonstrations and training on the CNM Raman instrumentation.
