Founded in 1839, Boston University has over 33,000 students. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering houses the Optical Characterization and Nanophotonics (OCN) laboratory. Here, research focuses on developing, and applying, advanced optical characterization techniques to the study of solid-state and biological phenomena, at the nanoscale.
Dr Cinzia Casiraghi is a Reader in Graphene and Carbon Nanostructures, in the School of Chemistry, at the University of Manchester, UK. She runs a research group, the Casiraghi Group, which uses Raman spectroscopy to derive quantitative information on the properties and structure of carbon nanostructures.
Videos showcasing the Renishaw inVia confocal Raman microscope are now available on the Renishaw website. These demonstrate some of the different capabilities of the inVia and provide an insight into its outstanding performance and flexibility.
Renishaw will be exhibiting its inVia Raman microscope at MMC2014 from 1st July to 3rd July, at the Manchester Central Convention Complex. Visit stand 1107 to find out how Renishaw's Raman instruments can be used across a range of application areas, with specific emphasis on biology.
