The two day RamanFest 2013 Symposium on 23rd and 24th May, 2013, 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.

Poster Session

An accompanying poster session will be open to registered delegates.

Please register for RamanFest, and tick the relevant box to indicate you wish to present a poster. A limited number of posters can be accepted; in the case of over-subscription a scientific panel from the organising groups (LASIR and HORIBA Scientific) will decide on which posters will be accepted. The decision of the scientific panel is final.
