Microscopy and Raman imaging are proving to be a valuable technique for the characterization of graphene, biomaterials and other nanotechnologies found in materials science research. Unlike most characterization techniques, Raman is extremely capable of classifying various forms of carbon. As a spectroscopic technique, Raman is able to analyze materials smaller than a micron. And, when combined with the hyper spectral image, it allows to quickly develop chemical maps across large areas of a material.

In our 50-minute presentation, we review the unique capabilities of Raman spectroscopy in the analysis of nanotechnologies such as 2D surface characterization, measurement of carbon nanotube purities, crystallization and orientation studies and the development of biomaterials.
