Workshop in Paris, May 2017

Confocal, Correlative Raman Imaging Workshop in Paris

May 11, 2017, École Centrale Paris, Grande Voie des Vignes, 92 295 Châteney-Malabry, France


This workshop will give a detailed introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations relevant to confocal Raman imaging along with correlative techniques (e. g. AFM, SNOM, and SEM). Our speakers from several French institutes will cover various aspects of Raman imaging and their fields of applications while an equipment demonstration will give a detailed introduction to the operational principles and instrumental configurations relevant to confocal Raman microscopy. Speakers from WITec will demonstrate the latest advances in microscopes and equipment development.

During the one-day workshop the participants will have sufficient time for in-depth discussions and close interaction with leading scientists and users of WITec microscope systems.

Scientists interested in chemically identifying and imaging the compounds of a sample at the highest spatial resolution are invited to participate.


Please register for participation.  Attendance is free of charge. For registration please fill in the form at the bottom of this side.


If you have further questions, please contact Lena Welter:

SECOND UPDATE Room and Parking


Again we had to move: Finally the workshop will take place in the 'Grand Salon' located of the building of 'Lavalée' (NOT in the building 'Olivier).


The conference room in this building is on the left site of the entrance, first floor.



There are plenty of parking facilities on site, but only on request and with a badge. So everybody who needs as parking place should please send us an email to

Those who have not yet registered may please look for the tick box in the registration form.
