A sophisticated microscope to Gothenburg after prize-competiton

Steven Jones, PhD student at the Department of Physics, Chalmers, recently won a brand-new Raman microscope together with his supervisor Professor Mikael Käll.
The competition took place at a recent International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy (ICORS) on Jeju Island in South Korea. The task was to formulate and motivate the best project to be solved by using the sophisticated instrument from Nanobase.

Steven Jones’ winning pitch was about his project on measuring the temperature in plasmonic nanoparticles by using so-called anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy.

The microscope will be placed in Chalmers Material Analysis Laboratory (CMAL) and the instrument will be available for research activities at both Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg.
