UNICAS (University of Nottingham Interdisciplinary Centre for Analytical Science) is pleased to support the Raman Microscopy and Spectroscopy Symposium.

Across the physical and life sciences to the arts and humanities, Raman microscopy and spectroscopy have become essential multidisciplinary tools for the broadest spectrum of analysis. It has been used for determining chemical and structural changes in advanced nanoscale materials, monitoring the release of the next generation of drug molecules into the human body and authentication of precious gemstones and minerals. And did you know that the technique has been used in the analysis of ancient manuscripts?

Delegates will hear from invited guest speakers and current users about their research using the techniques:

  • Prof Andy Beeby (Durham) on his work with medieval manuscripts
  • Dr Cinzia Casitaghi (Manchester) on her work with graphene
  • Prof Mike George (Nottingham) on his work with Raman Spectroscopy
  • Dr Ian Hutchinson (Leicester) on his work detecting signs of life on Mars
  • Dr Ioan Notingher (Nottingham) on his work with nanomaterials, live cells and disease diagnosis
  • Paul Pudney (Unilever Research) on his work with in-vivo raman of skin and hair and work with food and flavourings

We welcome researchers wishing to present a poster or give a talk at the event, and ask that you make this clear when reserving your place.

We are keen to welcome potential new users of these techniques and will look forward to showing you how we can help your research and answer any questions you may have.

By attending the symposium you will also be entered in to a competition to win free equipment time to explore novel applications of Raman microscopy and spectroscopy.
