Standardisation of Raman devices and Raman data spectroscopy received strong interest in recent years due to the broad expansion in the number and type of Raman devices and the need to assure data exchange and data consistency along devices and across different units and sampling configurations.
Raman spectroscopy is very sensitive to the actual device configuration and physical characteristics of the spectrum acquisition. A bigger differentiation in device performance and the capability to reproduce data and transfer information between devices has been recognised by users and institutions; for these reasons, there is a rising interest in finding ways to harmonise data sharing and protocols to calibrate and validate Raman devices.
Two CEN Workshop Agreements (CWAs) are expected to be developed under the Workshop describing protocols for the calibration and verification of Raman devices. They are expected to be ready for publication seven months after the kick-off meeting.
The Secretariat is held by UNE, the Spanish Standardization Body. The kick-off meeting will be held online on 28 February 2024, 10:00—12:30 CET.Visit Event Website Add to my calendar
