Groundbreaking Microscope claims Win at R&D 100 Awards ceremony

Jan 20 2023

WITec Co-founder and Managing Director Dr. Joachim Koenen was presented with a 2022 R&D 100 Award as a winner in the analytical/test category for the company’s cryoRaman very low temperature molecular imaging system, during a gala dinner recently held in Coronado, California,

Created in cooperation with technology partner attocube systems AG, this instrument was said to be one of the year’s most innovative commercial product introductions, with potential to benefit leading areas of research including investigations of phase transitions and novel 2D materials.

 “We’re very proud of cryoRaman, it’s an innovation in the truest sense. The capability it provides to the researcher simply didn’t exist before,” said Dr. Koenen. “We’re very grateful to our development team for their hard work, our partners at attocube for their exceptional cooperation and to R&D World for this great distinction.”

cryoRaman integrates a Raman microscope with a cryogenic sample chamber to enable high-resolution chemical characterisation at extremely low temperatures and in strong magnetic fields.

The R&D 100 Awards, organised by R&D World magazine is a program that celebrates new devices and materials for their technological significance. A panel of expert judges reviews submissions from across the industry and the Analytical/Test category recognises laboratory advancements specifically.
