Conditions for using the service Internal users of the University of the Basque Country / Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea, in addition to institutions that maintain agreements with the UPV/EHU, are able to take advantage of special prices for the services contracted at the Advanced Research Facilities (SGIker). These special prices are subject to the following clauses: The results obtained cannot be used to obtain any additional gain. If the results obtained from the analyses are published in magazines, congresses or talks, etc., express reference muat be provided to the technician and the SGIker service where the results were obtained in the acknowledgements section. Parties to the contract are duty bound to provide the technician with a copy of the relevant article, abstract or book chapter. General rules Access to the unit of Coupled Multispectroscopy Singular Laboratory (Raman-LASPEA) involves meeting the requirements set forth in the Protocol for access to SGIker and the services it provides.
The combination of basic techniques and molecular spectroscopy is a powerful tool that has been successfully applied in conducting qualitative and quantitative analysis in fields as diverse as Earth Sciences, Environment, Fine Arts and / or Materials Sciences . The posibility to analyze both organic and inorganic compounds (solids, solutions, pastes, gels, films, etc.) as well as little or no sample preparation (nondestructive techniques or microinvasive) are some of the main advantages of this analytical methodology . The Singular Coupled Multispectroscopy Laboratory (Raman-LASPEA) is part of the General Research Services (SGIker) of the UPV / EHU and currently has the following instrumental techniques: FTIR imaging microscopy, confocal Raman microscopy, structural and chemical analyzer or SCA (combination electron microscopy, microanalysis or EDS , Raman spectroscopy and photoluminescence ), Raman imaging microscopy and atomic force microscopy (AFM-Raman and TERS).
The infrastructure available at the Coupled Multispectroscopy Laboratory (Raman-LASPEA) enables analysis to be carried out in different technical-scientific areas. Any material with covalent links can be analysed using Raman and FRIT techniques. Some of the areas of application are listed below: Earth Sciences (Geochemistry) Mineral phase and rock characterisation Identifying precious stones Sludge study Fine Arts and Humanities Paints Agglutinants Sculptures Strategic cuts Sciences of the Materials Studying new polymers Inorganic compounds with special properties Nanoparticles Engineering and the Environment Pollution mechanisms and sources Monitoring chemical reactions and processes Catalyser characterisation and development Pre-history and Ancient History Studying supports Studying techniques to prepare archaeological materials Fossils Biomedicine Studying cancer cells
