Spectroscopy with the stars - Vild med spektroskopi

Spectroscopy with the stars - Vild med spektroskopi
Have you ever wondered what is going on inside your spectrometer?

Spectroscopy is used for numerous analytical tasks, in particular within the pharmaceutical and food industries. The equipment is usually designed in a way so that you only need to understand the data output from the instrument, and/or the subsequent data analysis. But how is the data actually being produced? How is the light (or electromagnetic radiation) interacting with your sample? Which parts are important for the performance, and what instrumental settings can you tune during your measurements? 

We have invited four experts to take us around the electromagnetic spectrum from mid-infrared via near-infrared, visible, ultraviolet to X-ray – including methods like absorption, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy. 


10:00-10:15 Welcome and short introduction to spectroscopy (Per Waaben Hansen, DSK/FOSS) 

10:15-11:00 Mid- and near-infrared spectroscopy (Jeppe Sandvik Clausen, FOSS) 

11:00-11:15 Break 

11:15-12:00 Raman spectroscopy (Tomasz Pawel Czaja, University of Copenhagen) 

12:00-13:00 Lunch 

13:00-13:45 Ultraviolet, visible and fluorescence spectroscopy (Åsmund Rinnan, University of Copenhagen) 

13:45-14:00 Break 

14:00-14:45 X-ray spectroscopy (Elisabeth Ulrikkeholm, FOSS) 

14:45-15:00 Wrap-up 

This is a hybrid meeting with a combination of in-person attendance and online streaming. 

The presentations will be in English.
