Raman Micro-Spectroscopy Laboratory - Equipped with high resolution Raman spectroscopies which provide information on molecular bonds as FTIR complementary instrument used for biological tissues and biomaterials. Raman spectroscopy, as FTIR complementary instrument, is a fast, relatively simple, and non-destructive technique which provides information on chemical/molecular structure of different materials. Raman spectroscopy is the inelastic scattering of photons (light) by phonons (crystal vibrations). Raman Micro-Spectroscopy lab features:
