The Raman-SIM2 project involves a Raman spectrometer coupled to a microscope (Raman microscope) that is specifically designed to study the mineral phases in geological and metallurgical samples, with emphasis on (low-grade) ores, metallurgical slags, mine tailings, geopolymers and industrial process residues. The main goal is the qualitative and quantitative characterization of inorganic materials (solids, liquids and gases) on ...
Development of a micro-spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (micro-SORS) probe for the in situ characterisation of layered structures Ghent University
The analysis of layered structures is highly important in cultural heritage research. Raman
spectroscopy is a well-established molecular technique applied in a broad range of research fields
(e.g. cultural heritage, mineralogy, forensics etc.). The chemical information retrieved during
Raman investigations, typically originates from the surface layer as the laser does not penetrate in
the subsurface. Micro-spatially offset ...
Microscopy has taken a firm place in many research fields. Coherent Raman scattering (CRS) microscopy offers the unique ability to perform chemically specific imaging with submicrometre resolution; Raman spectroscopy gives reliable molecular information e.g. on the presence of functional groups, molecular organization and interaction. Recent developments of coherent Raman spectroscopy such as coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering and ...
Obtaining both chemical and morphological information at nanometer scales is of vital importance in nano-science and technology. Tip-enhanced Raman scattering (TERS) microscopy is a promising surface sensitive technique that combines two concept, i.e. chemical finger printing by Raman spectroscopy and high spatial resolution atomic/molecular imaging of scanning problem microscopy (SPM), such as scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) and atomic ...

Photonic Integrated Circuits For Surface Enhanced Raman spectroscopy: Atomic Layer Deposition Assisted Enrichment and Integration of Plasmonic Nanostructures and Nanophotonic Waveguides Ghent University
Raman spectroscopy (RS) is a powerful technique to identify the composition of a material by probing the mechanical vibration of molecules using a laser beam and detecting the shift in the optical frequency induced by the vibrating molecules. It has many applications ranging from the detection of counterfeiting to monitoring chemical processes and probing living cells. The key challenge with RS is twofold: firstly, the Raman signal is ...

Phase formation and defect generation during metallization and ion implantation of GeSn semiconductors Ghent University
Raman spectroscopy is a powerful technique to identify the composition of materials. In
essence, it probes the spectrum of the characteristic mechanical vibrations of molecules by
focusing a laser beam on the material and detecting the optical frequency shifts induced by the
vibrating molecules. It has many applications ranging from the detection of counterfeiting to
the analysis of minerals on ...
