Florescence suppression by (instantaneous) shifted excitation Raman difference spectroscopy


30/11/17 at 3pm (UK time)


Raman spectroscopy is an established analytical tool for speciation, structural analysis, quantification, and process monitoring.  However, the presence of fluorescing compounds makes the Raman analysis difficult because fluorescence signals can be orders of magnitude stronger and mask the signal of interest.

The webinar gives an overview of common methods for background suppression and introduces the principles of shifted-excitation Raman difference spectroscopy (SERDS).   Example applications like SERDS monitoring of the pharmaceutical production in a bioreactor and the recent development of instantaneous SERDS (iSERDS) will be shown and discussed.

The webinar will be presented by Prof Johannes Kiefer of the University of Bremen.


The webinar should last no longer than one hour.
