Please join MONT for a presentation by  Dr. Robin Gerlach,  Applications of Raman Confocal Spectromicroscopy in Biogeochemistry, Geology, Materials Science and Engineering at Montana State University on February 22, 12-1PM (MST). 

Click this link to join webinar at noon MST on Feb. 22:

This webinar is aimed at introducing non-experts to the fundamentals of Raman spectroscopy and at those who would like to find out how a Horiba LabRAM Evolution Confocal Raman Microscope has been used in biofilm, geology, geochemistry, material science and engineering research and development projects at MSU. Examples of the application of Raman Spectromicroscopy (or Raman Microscopy in short) at MSU include surface and biofilm characterizations, mineral identification, characterizing materials and their changes (such as phase transitions), and identifying rock inclusions. It will be discussed how data obtained using Raman Microscopy and other analytical techniques can be correlated to obtain deeper insight into the properties of materials, and how Raman Microscopy might be useful in your research.

The webinar is free, but registration is required. Register below; registration deadline is Thurday, Febrary 21.   There are two ways to participate:

1) Attend in person:  126 Barnard Hall, Montana State University. Bring a sack lunch if so inclined

2) Attend by videolink:  An access code will be sent the morning of the webinar. We will use the Zoom platform.
