- Renishaw, UWarwick to Hold Raman Seminars
COVENTRY, England, Sept. 10, 2010 — An exciting lineup of world-class speakers will be passing on their experience and expertise in the upcoming “Inside Raman” event at the University of Warwick. This event, jointly organized by Renishaw plc and Mark Newton at the University of Warwick, is aimed at promoting Raman spectroscopy to UK businesses and academia.
The event will take place at Millburn House, located on the University of Warwick campus. There is no charge to attend the event, which is expected to appeal to anyone interested in learning about — or extending their understanding of — Raman spectroscopy, and will cater to people at all levels of Raman knowledge and experience.
In addition to talks by prominent scientists on the application of Raman spectroscopy, the latest techniques, instrumentation, and applications, research and funding trends will be discussed. There also will be an opportunity to explore the impressive optical spectroscopy, NMR and electron resonance facilities at Millburn House.
The seminars run on consecutive days.
• Day 1, on Wednesday, Sept. 22, will focus on life science applications
• Day 2, on Thursday, Sept. 23, will focus on chemistry, material science and physics
Renishaw positions itself as a leader in Raman spectroscopy. The company’s optical spectroscopy products exploit the Raman effect in a noncontact, nondestructive manner to identify and characterize the chemistry and structure of materials. Its products include Raman microscopes, compact Raman spectrometers and Raman analyzers for scanning electron microscopes, for such applications as pharmaceuticals, carbon and diamond, material science, gemology and mineralogy, forensic science, nanotechnology, and semiconductors.

- The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
- raman spectroscopy
- That branch of spectroscopy concerned with Raman spectra and used to provide a means of studying pure rotational, pure vibrational and rotation-vibration energy changes in the ground level of molecules. Raman spectroscopy is dependent on the collision of incident light quanta with the molecule, inducing the molecule to undergo the change.
