Transition metal oxides are compounds composed of oxygen bound to transition metals used in various applications such as heterogeneous catalysts. To study the mechanism of the catalytic process as well as monitor and optimize the reaction conditions, multiple analytical methods such as XAS, NMR, and Raman spectroscopy have been investigated. Raman spectroscopy has been widely utilized in in-situ catalytic process monitoring with metal oxides, even achieved multi-technique characterization by combining with other instrumentations.
White Paper: The Challenge Of Manufacturing Large Mirrors
Large mirrors are a critical aspect of numerous optical systems and are used in a wide variety of important applications. For the production of high performance large mirrors, optical manufacturers are tasked with the challenge of meeting a strict set of requirements.
