Measurement of the Raman spectra of materials is a powerful technique for molecular characterization and detection.
The spectra are related to the vibronic structure of the molecule and provide fingered print signature of the compound.
The research topics span a wide range of subjects associated with various groups
in the Ben-Gurion University and other academic institutes as well as industry.
Few examples are: identification of different polymorphs of a chemical substance, bacteria detection,
carbon nano-tube characteristics, studies of poly-di-acetylenes (PDA) at different conditions,
study of interactions between POMs (polyoxometalates) and metal colloids.
The Raman System is a highly advanced micro-Raman set up spanning excitation range from 325 nm to 785 nm.
There is temperature control unit and various polarization apparatus which enable Raman spectra measurement
of both solid and liquid samples at a wide range of experimental conditions.
