Inside Raman 2012 - Held at the STFC, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory site.

Scientists, academics and students from a diverse range of disciplines gathered, near Oxford, to enjoy two full days of talks, demonstrations, data clinics and excellent networking opportunities hosted by Renishaw to Celebrate 20 years of Renishaw RAMAN.

Prominent scientists presented their Raman research covering diverse topics including the microbiochemical analysis of carious dentine, lymph node diagnostics, chemometric analysis, graphene and Raman-AFM/TERS. Delegates had the opportunity to learn directly from Renishaw's team of applications experts, with hands-on demonstrations of Renishaw's latest Raman technology, instrumentation and software.

Tours of the impressive facilities at the STFC, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory-including the ISIS pulsed neutron and muon source-were extremely popular and added to the lively atmosphere. Day one was bought to a close with a drinks reception to celebrate 20 years of Renishaw Raman.

Renishaw would to like thank Prof. Tony Parker from the STFC, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory for hosting the event and providing access to the tours. He said "This year sees my 25th year at RAL, doing Raman research, so hosting Renishaw's conference that brings together the Raman community to discuss the latest results, learn from workshops and celebrate their 20 years of delivering front-end instrumentation has been fantastic."

Some of the feedback received from attendees:

"Very interesting talks that enlighten wider use of Raman in science"

"Diverse program of speakers"

"Really useful to see how current users utilise the abilities of their Renishaw instruments"

"Opportunity to network and find out about applications of Raman"

"Helpful to talk to other users and the Renishaw applications experts"
