  • 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.
