Application note: Combined Raman-SEM imaging for pharmaceutical studies
This application note presents correlative Raman Imaging and Scanning Electron (RISE) microscopy as a useful tool for investigating the fine structure and chemical composition of pharmaceutical samples.
Confocal Raman imaging is a well‑established spectroscopic method for investigating a sample’s chemical composition. It is based on the Raman effect, which results from the inelastic scattering of incident light by molecules. Characteristic energy shifts in the scattered photons are visible in unique Raman spectra, which can be used to identify chemical compounds.
