RISE Microscopy - Correlative Raman Imaging and Scanning Electron Microscopy (Raman-SEM)

World's first fully-integrated Raman Imaging and Scanning Electron Microscope


RISE Microscopy is a novel correlative microscopy technique that combines SEM and confocal Raman Imaging. Through RISE Microscopy ultra-structural surface properties can be linked to molecular compound information.

 riseThe RISE Microscope combines all features of a stand-alone SEM and the confocal Raman imaging microscope alpha300 within one instrument:

  • Quick and convenient switching between Raman and SEM measurement
  • Automated sample transfer from one measuring position to the other
  • Integrated software interface for user-friendly measurement control
  • Correlation of the measurement results and image overlay
  • No compromise in SEM and Raman imaging capabilities

RISE Key Features

Scanning Electron Microscope:

  • Fully PC-controlled SEM
