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

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]. more
