Spectroscopy Spotlight
How Molecules React to Strong Lasers: New Discoveries
Spectroscopy recently interviewed professor Robert J. Levis, professor of chemistry at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on his work with strong lasers, including specific applications such as tissue typing and tissue analysis. MORE »
The world's smallest, lightest, most robust benchtop FTIR is here. The NEW Agilent Cary 630 FTIR doesn't compromise on performance or precision. Instead, it proves that big things come in small packages. With 21 CFR compliance, revolutionary sampling accessories for liquid analysis, and permanently aligned optics, reliable testing is in your hands.

FACSS Innovation Awards Winners Announced
The Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) announced the winners of the 2011 FACSS Innovation Awards, which showcase the newest and most creative science debuted orally at a FACSS organized conference.
The Sol™ 1.7 is a high performance linear InGaAs array fiber-optic spectrometer with a wavelength range from 900nm – 1.7µm and resolution as fine as 0.35nm. Two gain modes for the optimization of sensitivity and dynamic range as well as enhanced TE cooling down to -10°C make the Sol 1.7 the ideal solution for demanding laboratory applications as well as integration into OEM and process systems.

FT-NIR Spectroscopy: Combining Performance, Precision, and Simplicity
Thursday, January 19, 2012
11:00 AM EST
This webcast will introduce a new FT-NIR instrument, with a low cost of ownership, that we believe can transform the way you currently analyze samples. We will present applications from the life sciences, chemical, polymer, feed, and food industries to demonstrate the accuracy and precision of the analysis in comparison with the primary methods.
Introduction to and Instrumentation for Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
11:00 AM EST
This educational seminar will emphasize a) the fundamental principles by which the various components of ICP-MS devices function, b) the basic capabilities and limitations of ICP-MS, and c) how these principles influence the design of effective tactics for analytical applications. Specific topics discussed include: general analytical capabilities of ICP-MS, ICP as an anion source, ion extraction, transmission & focusing, mass analysis- quadrupole, magnetic sector , matrix effects, applications survey, removal of polyatomic ions – high resolution, desolvation, cool plasma, and collision cells.
