Raman microscopy: The solution for advanced characterization of packaging and polymers

Polymeric materials play a fundamental role in our everyday life. They prevent our food from coming into contact with bacteria or from being oxidized, increase the resistance of our glasses… more than 330 million tons of polymers are made every year.

To ensure all these important functions are possible, a simple polymer is not enough. Thus, polymeric materials have become increasingly complex and now contain many different macromolecule chains combined in multilayered systems.

In this webinar, Massimiliano Rocchia and Ludivine Fromentoux, HORIBA Scientific, will demonstrate Raman microscopy solutions that enable scientists to obtain full and complete characterization data for all polymer films, from defect analysis to multilayer materials characterization. Focusing on food packaging materials, all analysis processes will be considered, from sample to cross-section and confocal analysis using HORIBA’s LS6 software platform.

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain insights into the polymer multilayers used for packaging
  • Learn about Raman microscopy and its advantages as a technique for polymer analysis
  • Understand how to perform a 3D analysis to analyze multilayer films or defects

Who should attend:

Anyone interested in understanding more about polymer and packaging analysis.

Certificate of attendance:

All webinar participants can request a certificate of attendance, including a learning outcomes summary, for continuing education purposes.
