Abstract:
HORIBA Jobin Yvon have been at the cutting edge of major breakthroughs in many key areas of instrument development and materials analysis including the latest hybrid approach of combining two or more techniques in one instrument for enhanced material characterization will be discussed such as Raman/AFM, Raman/SEM, Raman/FT-IR and Raman/PL/CL. It will be explained how recent instrumental advances have allowed biomolecular imaging to probe molecular properties of biological materials at the nanoscale and to combine nanomaterial distribution, morphology and size measurements with molecular identification and conformation. This fundamental understanding of what determines the physical and chemical properties of biomaterials at the nanoscale provides researchers with the capability for true “intelligent design”. These breakthrough studies include direct imaging of cells, the determination and/or the prediction of the nanostructure failure mechanism in bone and artificial joints and the characterization of single-walled nanotube diameter and chirality. Recent and future major developments in molecular and micro-analysis for nanomaterial and biomedical applications will be discussed and explained in terms of our vision of how instrumentation will need to perform and operate in the future to meet the challenging measurements required for nanomaterial research and development.
