  • Scientists from The University of Manchester team up with Renishaw to analyse tissue

    Rubinder Basson presenting a poster on the analysis of skin tissue Renishaw has collaborated with scientists at The University of Manchester to show the ability of Raman spectroscopy to analyse skin tissue. This work was presented at the recent Joint Meeting of the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care and the Wound Healing Society, held in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, from 25-29 April, 2018.

  • Ground breaking Raman work presented at conference

    Presenting ground breaking Raman work at the Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Conference Renishaw has collaborated with scientists at Oxford Radcliffe Hospital to investigate the capability of Raman spectroscopy to classify gliomas, in terms of their genetic subtypes, using different pathological preparations. This work was presented at the recent Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Conference, 2018 held in London from 1-3 May 2018.

  • Raman spectroscopy spots environmental microplastics

    inVia Raman microscope at the Danish Technological Institute Plastics are used extensively in products and packaging. Unfortunately, these make their way into the environment and cause significant pollution, not only as bulk material but also as microplastics: small, hard-to-spot, particles. A Danish research institute is using a Raman spectroscopy system, from Renishaw, to help its clients understand and reduce the amount of microplastics in the environment.

  • Raman spectroscopy helps battery research

    Hardwick_Group_in_Raman_Lab Power generation is shifting from traditional to less predictable renewable sources. Consumers are demanding faster charging and longer battery life for their products. Both trends require the development of better energy storage devices. The Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy, part of the Department of Chemistry, University of Liverpool, UK, is developing these devices, in the form of batteries and supercapacitors. Key to this work is understanding the interfacial processes that occur

  • Multi-laser Raman analysis of zirconia

    Dr. Victor V. Popov using an inVia Raman microscope Researchers at the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute), are studying complex oxides. They have recently shown the importance of using multiple excitation wavelengths when studying these materials with Raman spectroscopy.

  • Renishaw helps with Perovskite solar panel research

    Renishaw at PSCO Dr Tim Batten and Dr Ian Hayward represented Renishaw at the recent PSCO-2017 conference on perovskite solar cells and optoelectronics hosted by The Mathematical Institute, Oxford, UK.

  • Raman spectroscopy: an advanced technique for gemstone analysis

    Mr. Zhang Jian, Senior Engineer, Technical Director of NGTC Research Department The National Gemstone Testing Centre (NGTC), China, is using Renishaw’s high performance inVia confocal Raman microscopes to perform non-destructive identification and characterisation of gemstones.

  • Renishaw presents in-SEM Raman spectroscopy and mapping at M&M 2017

    Renishaw's SEM-SCA Global engineering and scientific technologies company, Renishaw, is attending the Microscopy and Microanalysis 2017 meeting, at the America’s Center in St Louis, Missouri, USA. The meeting, taking place between August 6th -10th, is the largest scientific meeting in the world devoted to advances in microscopy and microanalysis.

  • Renishaw's RA802 Pharmaceutical Analyser wins an award

    Renishaw stand at EuroLab 2017 Renishaw, the global engineering technologies company, is delighted to announce that its RA802 Pharmaceutical Analyser has won the best measurement laboratory equipment award during Eurolab 2017. The new RA802 is a compact benchtop Raman imaging system, designed exclusively for the pharmaceutical industry.

  • Geologists use Renishaw's Raman-in-SEM solution to probe the nanoworld
