Event Overview:

In this exciting tech event, we highlight what’s new and exciting in analytical spectroscopy technology and instrumentation, addressing what the developments mean for improved performance, practical implementation, and expanded applications. Talks will cover both atomic and molecular spectroscopy techniques, looking at new instrumentation, improved sampling, advances in data processing, and more. We give the floor entirely to scientists at leading spectroscopy suppliers, who will bring you up to date on important developments:

  • They will explain and demonstrate the technologies underlying advanced capabilities of analytical techniques and instruments, addressing how those capabilities can translate into performance improvements such as increased sensitivity, greater robustness, and ease-of-use.
  • They will also describe advances in practical applications of analytical spectroscopy techniques, illustrating the work with real examples and data. You will be able to ask all your questions, too.

In short, by attending this event, you will gain practical information about ways to make your work easier and more effective. Are you missing the opportunity to explore new products hands-on at a live event? Are you finding online videos too brief, and craving the opportunity to ask your specific questions? This event will give you the answers you seek. Sign up today!

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Get up to date on the latest developments in analytical spectroscopy technology and applications, including both atomic and molecular techniques
  • See how the advanced capabilities of analytical techniques and instruments translate into performance improvements such as increased sensitivity, greater robustness, and ease-of-use.
  • Hear about advances in practical applications of analytical spectroscopy techniques, with real examples and data.

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone interested in the latest developments in atomic or molecular spectroscopy
  • Due to limited opportunities for in-person attendance at technical conferences, because of the pandemic, this is a great opportunity for researchers and laboratory analysts to learn about what’s new in chemical analysis.

Symposium Agenda:

10:00 AM EDT
Advancing Battery Development and Materials Science with Raman-SEM
Dr. Ute Schmidt, Applications Manager, Oxford Instruments WITec

One path towards a more sustainable energy system is the use of effective energy storage devices. Industrial and academic research continues to develop batteries with optimized properties regarding charging speed, energy density and lifetime.

Raman imaging can reveal chemical composition and by combining with SEM, structural and chemical information can be easily acquired from the same sample position. Our speaker will describe these approaches and the power of correlative Raman-SEM imaging for analysis in the contexts of energy storage devices and advanced new materials.

10:30AM EDT
Overcoming Raman Spectroscopy Limitations
Adam J Hopkins, Spectroscopy Product Manager, Metrohm USA

Raman spectroscopy has two commonly encountered limitations – fluorescence and sensitivity. Fluorescence, whether from analytes or interferents, hides Raman peaks and reduces both identification and quantification capabilities. At the same time, Raman is generally considered an insensitive technique with quantitative detection limits in the high ppm to percent range. Recent innovations in data processing and instrument design are overcoming these boundaries, making Raman applicable to new systems and samples.

11:00AM EDT
Sample Preparation and Analysis of Materials used in Lithium Ion Battery Production using the CEM BLADE
Alicia Stell, Ph.D, Market Development Manager, CEM Corporation

Recent research initiatives have concentrated on the development and composition of the next generation of Li batteries to improve performance as demand for sustainability increases worldwide. The new, automated CEM BLADE microwave-assisted acid digestion system was able to safely and efficiently digest a variety of source materials, such as lithium sources and cathode materials. The BLADE combines sequential digestion of samples and ease-of-use with an automatic loading and unloading robotic arm and two-piece snap cap. Excellent recoveries were achieved for various sample types, establishing the BLADE as a valuable tool for Li battery research and development.
