Raman and Photoluminescence Spectroscopy of Semiconductors and Display Materials

Dr Maria Tesa
Edinburgh Instruments, UK

Raman microscopy and Photoluminescence spectroscopy are essential tools for Materials Science research. This presentation will introduce state-of-the-art Raman and Photoluminescence instrumentation by Edinburgh Instruments, and show how to apply these techniques to a series of relevant applications.

Topics discussed will include spectral and time-resolved photoluminescence of new materials for display applications, Raman microscopy of transition metal dichalcogenides and graphene, and how Raman and Photoluminescence microscopies can be combined to obtain complementary information.
