Project Description

The ability to visualize the spatial distribution of chemical components at sub-micron scales is seen as a key
driver for future progress in nanoscience, materials, biology and biomedicine. Workers in these fields
recognize Raman spectroscopy as a powerful and versatile analytical technique. Recent technological
advances have led to the development of 2D and 3D Raman imaging systems that allow the rapid acquisition
of chemical spectra at high spatial resolution. We propose to create a state-of-the-art Raman spectroscopic imaging facility that will be used by a broad spectrum of researchers in biotechnology and materials science.
This facility will allow the Melbourne area to retain its current status at the forefront of molecular imaging.
