Preliminary Pogram

The two days RamanFest 2016 Symposium will encourage discussion on the latest capabilities of Raman spectroscopy, with particular emphasis on life science applications, confocal Raman imaging, and the combination of Raman with SPM/AFM for sample characterization and TERS analysis.

There will be an accompanying poster session for delegates.
