CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spectroscopy®, a multimedia platform that promotes the use of spectroscopic instrumentation in applied research, environmental testing, quality control, and the life sciences, and the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS), are pleased to announce a joint virtual conference, “Molecular Spectroscopy in Practice,” taking place July 22–23.
“We are honored to be able to work with the SAS to present a joint virtual conference this summer,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, the parent company of Spectroscopy®. “It is great that we can collaborate during this uncertain time to provide critical, accurate information to molecular spectroscopists and analytical laboratory staff working with molecular spectroscopy techniques in the field.”
The two-day virtual conference is broken up into two different topics. The first day, Wednesday, July 22, will cover Raman spectroscopy, and the second day, Thursday, July 23, will focus on infrared (IR) spectroscopy. Each day will feature a morning and an afternoon session. The morning sessions will provide three 20-minute tutorials on fundamentals, followed by a Q&A period with all the speakers. In the afternoon sessions, speakers will give 20-minute talks providing tips, tricks, and troubleshooting.
The sessions are listed below:
Wednesday, July 22: Raman Spectroscopy
Morning Session: Molecular Spectroscopy in Practice: Raman Spectroscopy
- Raman Theory and Instrumentation, with Ashley N. Allen, Ph.D., Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
- Important Characteristics of Ramen Spectroscopy, with Peter J. Larkin, Ph.D., Cytec Solvay
