Event Overview:

This webcast provides valuable insights into pressing industry challenges, with a specific focus on three key areas. Firstly, it addresses the increasing demand for miniaturized spectrometers that enable rapid analysis and cater to critical sectors such as precision agriculture and environmental monitoring. Secondly, the webcast highlights the importance of employing improved illumination techniques when conducting Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) measurements, thereby enhancing the accuracy and reliability of the results. Additionally, it emphasizes the significance of ultra-high dynamic range spectrometers, namely Hamamatsu’s new OPAL-LUXE, which opens new possibilities in applications that require monitoring weak and high intensity signals in one measurement, like in plasma physics and monitoring in laser-based applications.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Miniaturized spectrometers: exploring their role in speeding up chemical analysis in precision agriculture and environmental monitoring
  • Improved illumination techniques: addressing the challenges and advancements in Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) measurements
  • Ultra-high dynamic range spectrometers: analyzing new opportunities enabled by an unprecedented ultra-high dynamic range of 2’500’000:1

Who Should Attend:

  • Product developers, optical engineers, R&D engineers, QA/QC engineers
  • Product managers, Business developers
  • Academic researchers involved with spectral measurements
  • Professionals from life science, medical, pharma, manufacturing, semiconductor testing, material sorting, and environmental sectors
  • Experts involved with Raman spectroscopy, fluorescence/luminescence spectroscopy, FTIR measurements, plasma monitoring, laser measurements, thin film measurements
