State-of-the-art Raman mapping and imaging equipment integrated with an atomic force microscope (AFM) will provide enabling technologies for cutting-edge research in disease diagnosis, mapping of the distribution and interactions of pharmaceutics in cells, understanding intracellular signalling molecules and nanomaterials research. A flexible micro-Raman spectrometer (sub-micron spatial positioning and micron spatial resolution) will be interfaced to an AFM head to enable nanometre spatial resolution for imaging/mapping at the sub-cellular level. Complementary new-generation total internal reflection and time-resolved fluorescence microscopy facilities will provide an integrated world-class equipment platform.
