The NMS Group Raman Laboratory

The NMS Raman Laboratory is a accessible for all NMS group members. Our facilities are also available, by arrangement, for other researchers and for industries to analyse any materials of interest. Consulting on Raman spectroscopy applications is also offered.

Raman Spectroscopy is the inelastic scattering of photons by phonons. It is a simple, fast, non-destructive characterisation tool widely used in basic and applied research in natural sciences and industries.

For training on the equipment and access to the lab, or for any general training, please contact the Lab Leader Dr Anna Ott.
