Abstract : The grant focused on the purchase of a Renishaw InVia Raman microscope to support and enhance the research in nanomaterials at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. The system was purchased, according to the description provided in the proposal (two laser beam capabilities at 785 nm and 532 nm, cell for temperature dependence capabilities manufactured by Linkam, and filters for low wave numbers for the 785 nm laser. The system includes an accessory for polarization (for 785 nm) and an optical cable that allows external Raman measurements. The manufacturer installed the system and provided the training of the main users. The Users confirmed that the system fulfills the technical requirements. Preliminary data have been obtained and undergraduate/graduate students started their research by using this Raman Spectrometer.
