SES laboratory

The International “Surface enhanced spectroscopy (SES)” laboratory was created at the Department for international research and development cooperation, technology transfer and intellectual property protection of the Institute of Physics in the framework of implementation of Nanotwinning Project.

Basic directions of scientific activity: Study of mechanisms and effects of the enhancement of optical signals from bioorganic molecules near metal and non-metal (carbon, metal oxide) surfaces using IR and Raman spectroscopy, creation of a new type of supports for spectroscopy, Surface enhanced infrared absorption (SEIRA) and Surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy and microscopy.

Main facilities and experimental methods:

Mission of the Joint Laboratory is as follows:

  • Joint research in the field of infrared and optical spectroscopy.
  • Coordination and integration of scientific research in various countries, and access to international scientific information space.
  • Promotion of innovation and technology transfer on the basis of new knowledge.

Goals of the Joint Laboratory:

  • Intensification of research, development of new technologies and materials based on research results, development of innovation and technology transfer;
  • Involvement of young scientists, postgraduates and students into the research activity.

This laboratory has a close cooperation with its Partners: Institute of Physics of the University of Tartu (Estonia), Pierre and Marie Curie University (France) and University of Turin (Italy).

“There is little breeding in European aquaculture and we want to make it better by improving ways to measure traits and develop more accurate selection methods,” says project coordinator Anna Sonesson from the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture research – Nofima. “All work is done in close collaboration between RTD and industry – this is essential for a project like FISHBOOST”, explains Sonesson.
