  • Fig. 1a): SEM Image of a geological diorite sample
  • Fig. 1b): RISE Microscopy: SEM image overlaid with the Raman image. The different colors in the Raman image illustrate the various molecular compounds. Raman image: 100 µm x 100 µm, 300 x 300 pixels = 9000 spectra, integration time: 34 ms/spectrum.
  • Fig. 1c): The corresponding color-coded Raman spectra display each molecular component of the sample.

RISE Microscopy is a novel correlative microscopy technique that combines Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and confocal Raman Imaging. Through RISE Microscopy ultra-structural surface properties can be linked to molecular compound information.
