Vibrational Spectroscopy Laboratory
Stony Brook Universityhttp://aram.ess.sunysb.edu/tglotch/
WiTEC alpha300R confocal Raman microscope system. Raman imaging or point spectroscopy using 532 or 785 nm lasers. Determination of mineral composition.
Conditions for Use:
- Submitted samples will be analyzed on a contract basis (i.e. lab personnel will do the work).
- Visitors are invited to work in the lab to work with lab personnel.
$51/hr for Raman analysis
In order of priority, instrument is available for funded research, lab visitors, and student projects.
Raman imaging works best on polished thin or thick sections. Point spectroscopy can be done on unprepared samples.
Standard Collections/Lab Blanks:
Use of WiTEC project software for spectral analysis and CrystalSleuth for mineral identification.
Graduate student research projects are invited
