French Geologists Use Renishaw’s Raman-in-SEM Solution to Probe the Nanoworld

Researchers at the French Geological Survey, BRGM, study the physical, chemical, and structural properties of minerals. T ey use a co-located SEM-Raman system from Renishaw to provide comprehensive in situ sample characterization. BRGM facilities include an SEM-Raman instrument consisting of a Renishaw inVia confocal Raman microscope coupled to a TESCAN Mira3 scanning electron microscope via Renishaw’s Structural and Chemical Analyser (SCA) interface.
