The R&D 100 Awards, organized by R&D World magazine and often regarded as “The Oscars of Innovation,” is a program that celebrates new devices and materials for their technological significance. A panel of expert judges reviews submissions from across the industry and the Analytical/Test category recognizes laboratory advancements specifically.

We’re very proud of cryoRaman, it’s an innovation in the truest sense. The capability it provides to the researcher simply didn’t exist before,” said Dr. Koenen. “We’re very grateful to our development team for their hard work, our partners at attocube for their exceptional cooperation and to R&D World for this great distinction.”

cryoRaman integrates a Raman microscope with a cryogenic sample chamber to enable high-resolution chemical characterization at extremely low temperatures and in strong magnetic fields. This unique and versatile combination will benefit many leading-edge areas of research, including investigations of phase transitions and novel 2D materials.
