Whether you're a beginner or an experienced user, our course structure includes both basic and advanced elements to suit your needs.
Through seminars and hands-on training sessions, WITec Academy offers a forum for in-depth teaching on various confocal Raman imaging and scanning probe microscopy techniques. Our demonstrations and teaching sessions use the latest hardware and software releases. All courses are presented in English.
We hope to see you at WITec Academy!Register for the WITec Academy
Most courses are held at WITec headquarters in Ulm, Germany. All required equipment and software are provided by WITec.
We also organize WITec Academy in online format. Online training courses are scheduled upon request. We invite interested customers to contact events@WITec.de individually. Please note that for the online instrument training courses, you will require access to a WITec Raman microscope during the entire training period.
This course is ideally suited for users new to the alpha300 confocal Raman microscopes who require an introduction to the operational principles of the system. A detailed description of the various components will form the basis for a hands-on session using WITec test samples. An introduction to the WITec software concept will play an important role during the training as thorough software knowledge is essential for successful Raman image generation.
This one-day training course is intended for experienced users of alpha300 confocal Raman microscopes as it covers expert-level features of the instruments. During individual hands-on sessions, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss and evaluate the requirements for successful Raman measurements on their own samples. Therefore, participants are encouraged to bring a sample for analysis under the guidance of the instructor. Finally, the course will include a “Tips & Tricks“ session for the various measurement techniques. Participants should have a working knowledge of the operation of the system as well as the software.
Our software training course will cover all aspects of spectral data evaluation and image processing with the WITec Project software. The participants will learn in detail how to process the acquired raw data in order to obtain the most presentable images and graphs for successful publication. Topics relevant to each participant‘s specific focus will be outlined in an “Advanced Individual Data Analysis Tutorial”, in which individual measurements will be processed under the guidance of the instructors. Each attendee will work during the course at an individual computer workstation configured with the latest version of the WITec Project software. As the course will mainly cover expert-level features, the participants should have at least a basic knowledge of the WITec Project software environment.
This course will include a review of basic instrument features and operational principles for the alpha300 AFM and SNOM microscopes. It will then cover a variety of expert-level software and instrumentation operation topics in AFM and SNOM imaging. During an individual sample analysis session, the participants will learn how to apply advanced operational procedures to their own samples for superior results. Participants should have at least a basic knowledge of the operation of the system as well as the software. They will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss their applications with WITec scientists.
AFM/SNOM training courses are scheduled upon request. We invite interested customers to contact events@WITec.de individually.
As soon as the maximum number of registrations has been reached, all subsequent registrants will be placed on a waiting list.
