The entry level instrument and software training is ideally suited for users new to the alpha300 or alpha500 Confocal Raman Microscopes requiring an introduction to the operational principals of the system and the software packages. A detailed description of the various components will set the basis for a hands-on session using WITec test samples. An introduction to the WITec software concept will play an important role during the training as thorough software knowledge is essential for successful Raman image acquisition.
WITec Academy is a training program for all instrument and software operations as well as potential applications of the WITec product line. Due to a course structure with basic and advanced elements it not only addresses new users but also more experienced users of WITec microscope systems. With seminars and extensive hands-on training sessions, WITec Academy serves as a forum for providing a comprehensive instruction covering a variety of techniques for productive and innovative research in the fields of Confocal Raman and Scanning Probe Microscopy.
This one day training course is intended for experienced users of the alpha300 R and alpha500 R Confocal Raman Microscopes covering expert level features of the instrument and its accessories. During individual hands-on sessions, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss and evaluate the requirements for successful Raman measurements on their own samples. Therefore, participants are encouraged to bring a sample for analysis under guidance of the instructor. Finally the course will include a „Tips & Tricks“ session for the various measurement techniques. Participants should have a working knowledge of the operation of the system as well as the software.
Our software course will cover all aspects of spectral data evaluation and image processing with the WITec Suite software. The participants will learn in detail how to process the acquired raw data in order to obtain the most presentable images and graphs for successful publication. Topics relevant to the participant‘s specific background will be outlined in an “Advanced Individual Data Analysis Tutorial”, in which individual measurements will be processed under guidance of the instructors. Each attendee will work during the course at an individual computer workstation equipped with two monitors and configured with the latest version of the WITec Suite software. As the course will mainly cover expert-level features, the participants should have at least a basic knowledge of the WITec Suite Software Package.
During this course, participants will learn the basic aspects of successful hard- and software operation of the AFM and SNOM capabilities of the alpha300 and alpha500 microscope series. It will include a detailed introduction to the instrument components and its functions for the two measurement methods. During a detailed software session, the features of the WITec Software packages will be outlined. An extended hands-on session will give the participants the opportunity to apply this knowledge to given test samples.
The subjects of this course will include a variety of expert level software and instrumentation operation topics for the alpha300 AFM and SNOM series. During an individual sample analysis session, the participants will learn how to apply advanced operational procedures to their samples for superior results. Participants should have at least a basic knowledge of the operation of the system as well as the software.
