Conference to celebrate Raman

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A number of renowned Raman spectroscopy researchers will gather June 12-13 in Cambridge, Mass., for RamanFest, which will take place at Harvard University’s Pfizer Auditorium in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.

Co-chaired by Harvard’s Dr. Sunney Xie and Dr. Dan Fu, and by Dr. Andrew Whitley of Horiba Scientific, the event will begin with a plenary talk by Dr. Fran Adar of Horiba Scientific, who will discuss past, present and future developments and applications for Raman spectroscopy.

MIT physics and electrical engineering professor Dr. Mildred Dresselhaus of MIT – “the Queen of Carbon Science” – will be the guest speaker after a gala dinner on the first evening of the conference.

Other speakers will include:

• Professor Sanford A. Asher, University of Pittsburgh: “UV Raman Studies of Protein and Peptide Structure and Folding Studies.”

• Professor Paul Champion, Northeastern University: “Coherent Low-Frequency Vibrational Motion in Proteins and Biomolecules.”

• Professor Ji-Xin Cheng, Purdue University: “Microsecond Time Scale Spectroscopic Imaging for In Vivo Molecular Analysis.”

• Professor Igor Chourpa, University of Tours, France: “SERS and Fluorescence as Analytical Tools to Study Theranostic Nanosystems.”

• Dr. Neil Everall, Intertek-MSG: “Industrial Problem Solving with Raman Spectroscopy.”

• Professor Michael W. George, University of Nottingham, England: “Raman Spectroscopy and Supercritical Fluids: From Trying to Help the Planet to Trying to Develop New Microelectronics.”

• Professor Igor K. Lednev, SUNY Albany: “Supremacy and Variety of Vibrational Spectroscopy for Probing Amyloid Fibrils: From UV Raman to VCD and TERS.”

• Professor Wei Min, Columbia University: “Bioorthogonal Nonlinear Vibrational Imaging.”

• Professor Lukas Novotny, ETH Zürich, Switzerland: “Near-Field Raman Microscopy and Spectroscopy of Carbon Nanotubes.”

• Dr. The-Quyen Nguyen, Northwestern University: “Raman Spectroscopy Goes Out Helping Patients in Operating Room.”

• Professor Christian Pellerin, University of Montreal: “Raman Spectroscopy of Individual Electrospun Fibers.”

• Dr. Michael J. Pelletier, Pfizer Global R&D: “Pharmaceutical Polymorph Discrimination Using Low-Wavenumber Raman Spectroscopy.”

• Professor Ping-Heng Tan, Chinese Academy of Sciences: “Ultra-Low-Frequency Raman modes in Two-Dimensional Layered Materials.”

• Professor Lawrence D. Ziegler, Boston University: “In Vitro Cellular Activity Probed by SERS: Applications for Diagnostics and Forensics.”

Registered guests are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentations during the two-day event. For more information, or to register, visit

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.
