Renishaw's Spectroscopy Products Division relocates to the company's headquarters site
After 23 years, and many months of planning, Renishaw’s Spectroscopy Products Division (SPD) said farewell to its Old Town site, in Wotton-under Edge, and moved to the new Renishaw Innovation Centre located at the company’s New Mills headquarters.
Renishaw Raman system used with SEM to study fibres at UCLA
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA, combines Raman microscopy with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to study archaeological textiles and fibres. UCLA use a Renishaw SEM-SCA system to study textiles and fibres, non-destructively. The full paper describing the work has been published by the Journal of Raman Spectroscopy (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.).
Renishaw adds Raman analysis to Scanning Electron Microscopy at the University of Sydney
Dr Elizabeth Carter is Manager of the Vibrational Spectroscopy Core Facility, VSCF, at the University of Sydney. This professional services unit houses one of the largest concentrations of state-of-the-art Raman and FT-IR spectrometers in Australia. The research interests of facility users are diverse and applications include: nanotechnology; materials science; art and archaeology; polymer science; pharmaceutics; environmental; forensics; mineralogy and gemmology; medical diagnostics; disease me
Renishaw's inVia used in conservation activities at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam
The Rijksmuseum is the iconic museum of the Netherlands and in 2013, following extensive renovation and restoration, it re-opened its doors to the public. At the museum, art and history takes on a new meaning for a broad-based, contemporary national and international audience.
