A team from the University of Geneva has succeeded in visualising crystal nucleation with Raman microspectroscopy that was invisible until now.

21 Apr 2022

Computational imaging technologies have substantially reduced the costs of imaging systems and at the same time significantly improved their performances. Use of a Lucy-Richardson-Rosen computational reconstruction method with infrared microspectroscopy has produced 3D images.
