Raman-TERS-AFM Laboratory

Supported by the Infrastructure Initiative of the Rectorate a new Raman-TERS-AFM laboratory could be established at Montanuniversität in 2018. The Horiba LabRAM HR Evolution installed in this new lab allows to perform various kinds of high-resolution analyses.

Raman Spectroscopy

Raman spectroscopy has developed into a major analytical technique in many fields, from fundamental research through to applied solution. The Raman effect allows fast, nondestructive chemical/physical analysis of solids, powders, liquids and gases. Identification of materials on the micro- to nanoscale has become of increasing interest to many research groups. The research program for Raman spectroscopy includes a variety of disciplines within geosciences and material sciences:

  • analyses of minerals
  • polymers
  • semiconductors
  • corrosion
  • carbon
  • nanomaterials
  • etc.
Scanning Probe Microscopy

Raman technology is integrated with a AIST-NT’s scanning probe microscope (SPM). The NanoRamanTM  platform integrates Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) that can provide besides topography physical sample information on the nanometer scale, including hardness, adhesion, friction, surface potential, electrical and thermal conductivity, magnetism and piezo response (among others), all together with the spectroscopic information obtained from Raman. The end result is a more comprehensive sample characterization in one versatile instrument, for fast simultaneous colocalized measurements and Tip- Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS).
