About RamanFest

Raman spectroscopy offers non-destructive, fast and reliable analysis of solids, powders, liquids and gases. The latest generation Raman microscope analyzers couple the detailed chemical analysis with sub-micron spatial resolution, allowing high speed detailed molecular imaging.

The RamanFest Symposium is an international event initiated by HORIBA Scientific in 2013. This annual two-day conference on advanced applied Raman spectroscopy addresses cutting edge Raman techniques including a host of applications, imaging techniques and AFM-TERS Raman spectroscopy.

Our key note lectures from internationally renowned scientists, and accompanying poster sessions encourage discussion on the latest capabilities of Raman spectroscopy.

It has been held in locations worldwide:
2013: The University of Lille in France
2014: Harvard University in USA
2015: Xiamen University in China
2016: Humboldt University in Germany
2017: Purdue University in USA
2018: The University of Tokyo in Japan

Welcome to RamanFest 2019!

The two-day conference will hosted by Professor Wei Huang, Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, and organised by HORIBA Scientific. There will be two days of lectures, with accompanying poster session, suppliers' exhibition and gala dinner, held at the Oxford Martin School in the heart of historic Oxford, UK, on Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th June 2019.

Internationally renowned scientists will address the application of cutting-edge Raman research within life science, environment and advanced material fields, including emerging technologies such as stimulated Raman scattering methods (SRS) and nanoscale analysis with Tip Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS). Key topics will include disease diagnosis and cell/tissue imaging, characterisation of micro-plastics in water, and novel 2D materials including graphene.

A full agenda, abstracts and online booking will be posted here in the near future.
