Assore Raman Laboratory

Home » Faculties of Science » Departments » Geology » Facilities » Assore Raman Laboratory

The Department of Geology houses a WITec alpha300R Confocal Laser Raman Microscope.

This instrument was purchased with the aid of ASSMANG, a leading South African mining company, and the UJ Research Committee. Installation in the new Raman spectroscopy lab took place in December 2011. The instrument combines a 532 nm laser with an automated sample stage that allows 2D microraman mapping of sample specimens and a piezostage that allows 3D microraman mapping with a resolution down to 200 nm.

For further information and to book time on the instrument please contact Axel Hofmann.
