Vibrational Spectroscopy Core Facility (ViSp)

Research infrastructure We are an open-access infrastructure, providing Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopy and microspectroscopy services for local, national and international users, both academic and non-academic.

Our state-of-the-art instrumentation and methodology can detect and localise (at micron and submicron level) chemical changes in a wide range of samples, at high speed and low cost, non-destructively and label-free. Due to the exceptional versatility of the techniques, our projects cover a wide range of scientific disciplines and applications, from e.g. materials sciences (nanotechnology, semiconductors) to plant sciences (high-throughput chemotyping/screening, investigating the effects of gene manipulations or environmental factors), from chemistry (absorption on mineral surfaces, real-time, in situ monitoring of reactions, protein conformational changes) to medicine (assessing tissue compositional changes under various pathological conditions, diagnosing and monitoring disease onset and progression, drug targeting and molecular mechanistic studies).
