Different groups around the world participated in an interlaboratory reproducibility and comparison study for tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. Different experimental configurations of tip, sample, and illumination/detection geometry were used by the participating groups. It was found that all research groups obtained similar spectral patterns, even though the relative peak position varied, most probably due to different spectrometer calibrations.
