Physics World Magazine conducted a wide-ranging interview with WITec Co-founder and Director of Research and Development, Olaf Hollricher, in the days leading up to the MRS Fall Meeting and Exhibit at the end of last year.
The article, Confocal Raman microscopy: correlate and accumulate, highlights the versatility of the technique and the modular architecture of WITec’s microscopes. It describes how Raman imaging can be integrated with other methods within one instrument to provide a more comprehensive picture of a sample’s chemical composition and distribution. The potential of this approach, known as correlative microscopy, and the growing demand for it in the marketplace are examined. Dr. Hollricher also discusses the seemingly contradictory challenges that have been overcome in pursuit of both capability and accessibility. Two of WITec’s standout innovations, TrueSurface topographic Raman imaging, and the ParticleScout microparticle analysis tool are detailed as well.
