On Wednesday (4/25) at 5pm, grad student and BGS member Krista Sawchuk will be giving us a walk through of the Raman spectroscopy lab.
***We will meet in the Geology Common Room (3680) and walk up together.
If you are unfamiliar with Raman spectroscopy see this website:
"Raman spectroscopy is a technique which is revolutionizing the field of mineral identification. It involves exposing minerals to a laser beam, which stimulates various atomic vibrations. The vibrating atoms scatter light from the laser, which is captured and analyzed via use of a spectrometer. The Raman spectra reflect the specimen's vibrational behavior – providing insight regarding the material's chemical and structural composition."
