Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Workshop: Raman spectroscopy for chemical & material identification


ABSTRACT: Raman imaging supports several “fast” chemical and topographical contrast methods that can greatly simplify area chemical composition and distribution analysis. The use of Raman microscopy in industrial and academic research settings has dramatically increased in the last 10 years as ease of use and wavelength options have increased. In a research environment, we see the need for material and chemical analyses of samples that may vary in size from the very large to the sub-micron and nanometre domains.

Renishaw's Raman workshop will review the theory and principles of confocal Raman spectroscopy. Following the presentation, attendees have the opportunity for hands-on use of a Renishaw inVia confocal Raman microscope equipped with 532 nm laser and mapping.

If you are interested to participate in the workshop please send an e-mail  to secure the spot. We will apply the first-asked first-served policy.
