3D Raman Images: Large-Area Data Acquistion and Processing

Newly Developed Software Solutions Revolutionize Data Representation

  • Fig. 3: Image stitching: Selection of 2D Raman images from the 3D image stack shown in figure 2. The image stitching allows a survey through the image stack from the top to the bottom (starting at the top left side of the figure). The color code is identical to figure 2. Parameters of each image: 50 x 50 µm2, 150 x 150 pixels = 22,500 spectra per image.Fig. 3: Image stitching: Selection of 2D Raman images from the 3D image stack shown in figure 2.

Confocal Raman Microscopy is a high-resolution imaging technique that has become widely used for the characterization of materials and specimens in terms of their chemical composition. With 2D and 3D Raman images, information regarding the chemical compounds and their distribution wihtin the sample can be illustrated clearly. Newly developed software solutions for data acquisition, evaluation, and processing support the management and visualization of even large Raman data sets while providing usability for all experience levels and requirements [1,2,3].
