August Applied Spectroscopy Highlights

This month’s Focal Point review article is titled “Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry: A review of challenges, solutions and trends”. It was written by Daniel Pröfrock and Andreas Prange from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Centre for Materials and Coastal Research, and reviews the use of hyphenated ICP-MS approaches for quantitative analysis with a focus on environmental and bio-analytical applications.

Since it was first developed in the 1980s, ICP-MS has developed into a staple for simultaneous multi-element analysis and, since that time, over 20,000 papers have been published detailing a multitude of fundamentals and applications of the method. ICP-MS provides ...

July Applied Spectroscopy Highlights

For the first time in over a year, an issue of Applied Spectroscopy does not include a Focal Point Review article. I would like to reassure our readers that the Editors are working very hard to move towards a Focal Point Review in each issue and we should be able to achieve that goal in the coming year. You can look forward to a comprehensive review with the title "Inductively Coupled Plasma– Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) for Quantitative Analysis in Environmental and Life Sciences: A Review of Challenges, Solutions, and Trends" by Daniel Profrock and Andreas Prange which will be in ...


June Applied Spectroscopy Highlights

This month’s Focal Point Review covers a subject with which many readers of this journal may not be familiar, namely hole-burning spectroscopy, where monochromatic (laser) light is used to saturate one wavelength of a broad band spectrum. Hannah Wagie and Peter Geissinger of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee discuss photochemical and photophysical mechanisms of hole burning and interpret the shapes of the spectral holes in terms of the micro-environment, lifetime and kinetics of the sample. After a discussion of the theory of hole-burning, they discuss recent examples where this technique has been used. These include the study of biological ...


UWM’s Center for Student Involvement Awards SAS For High School Project

UWM’s Center for Student Involvement Awards SAS For High School Project

Over the past year, the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee student chapter of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) has been involved in a project designed to expose students to spectroscopy through a forensic lab involving the absorption of automobile paint to local area high schools. Using a lab designed by our SAS members, we were able to introduce spectroscopy as a way to study forensic science. The labs were performed in area high schools and received high compliments from all involved. It was fun to work alongside the students and have the opportunity to introduce a technique that they would ...

Gordon F. Kirkbright Bursary Award, 2013

The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that enables a promising student/non-tenured young scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning. The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general. Although the fund is administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust, the award is not restricted to spectroscopists.

Applications are invited for the 2013 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary.

For further information contact John Chalmers at, email ...
