About this webinar

John Gilmore, MEE, from Hamamatsu Corporation speaks with us on Raman technology from Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. Listen along as we chat about this evolving technique and how devices such as Hamamatsu’s Raman module have been designed to meet growing needs for compact and portable spectrometry.


What you will learn:

  • In which markets is Raman spectroscopy popular
  • What is a Raman module and what sets it apart from existing Raman technologies?
  • Common challenges faced by original end manufacturer (OEM) design engineers when integrating Raman spectrometers

About the presenter

John D. Gilmore has been characterizing leading-edge photonic devices for over three decades. He has developed sophisticated test and measurement capabilities, enabling precise characterization of image sensors and spectrometers. In addition, he has vast knowledge of the operation, optimization, and practical use of photonic devices, with particular emphasis on image sensors, spectrometers, and Raman modules. He received his B.S. degree in electronic engineering technology (EET) from Capital Institute of Technology, Laurel, Md., in 1986, and received his M.S. degree in electrical engineering with a concentration in solid state devices and material processing from the New Jersey Institute, Newark, N.J., in 1993. He joined Hamamatsu Corp. in September of 1986 and is presently the spectrometer business development manager. He is currently involved with the development of application-specific inspection equipment, general spectrometer marketing, and advanced field technical support.
