Gateway to Spectroscopy
Spectroscopy Net is an informal Web site for all
aspects of Optical (Atomic) Emission Spectrometry. Those
seeking other spectroscopies, in particular we have lots of requests
for atomic absorption spectroscopy, might try to come back later
again as we constantly work on this site to cover more aspects of
Spectrometry. We have opend the The Spectroscopy Net for
contributions by the Experienced
Researchers and Early Stage
Researchers of the Marie Curie RTN Gladnet to give
them the possibility of informing the public about their research
interests and to get training in writing scientific contributions
dedicated to the general public. In particular the participants of
the training courses organised by Gladnet are encouraged to write a
small topic on the training lectures.
The Spectrocopy Net was designed by Dr
Richard Payling to bring emission spectrometry to the web, to
support practitioners, and to provide an informal exchange of
information. Richard was Manager of Surface Analytical, Consultant to
Horiba Jobin-Yvon France and Conjoint Associate Professor of Physics,
The University of Newcastle, NSW 2380, Australia.
The world of Light, of Sun and Stars, of Atoms and
Chemical Analysis. The Spectroscopy Net is an open, free resource for
Spectroscopists everywhere and everyone interested in Atomic
History: (300 BC to 1988 AD) light, optics,
Theory: atomic spectra, energy levels, emission
Techniques: ICP, Spark source, Glow Discharge
Instruments: diffraction gratings, optical spectrometers,
Workshops: measurement statistics, calibration,
* inductively coupled plasma: ICP-OES, ICP-AES; Spark
emission; glow discharge spectroscopy: GD-OES, GDOES, GDOS, GD-AES,
GDS, Elemental Depth Profile Analysis and SDL for the French.
used to be 7 sites which are currently regrouped and restructured to
make the information more easily available. The home site where you
are now, and 3 external web sites will remain. The Site system is
also closely linked to two different research projects funded by the
European Comission with in the 6th framework: Elemetal and Molecular
Depth Provile Analysis, and Marie Curie RTN GLADNET (Glow Discharge
Analytical Spectroscopy Network) Links to the site of these projects
are available on the vertical menu bar.
