To Wednesday, November 15 2017
Every day

 Sponsor: Hooke College of Applied Sciences

Description: This Infrared Microscopy training course is designed to provide practical instruction in real world use of the Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) microscope. The FTIR training utilizes demonstrations and laboratory exercises supplemented with lectures. Students are strongly encouraged to bring their own samples for analysis. Class size is limited to twelve students to allow for maximum student participation. Four experienced instructors lead this class, and tailor the laboratory exercises and discussions to the skill level and interests of the students.

This IR course assumes basic knowledge of infrared spectroscopy and operation of an FTIR microscope. There is a brief discussion of infrared theory, and a heavy emphasis on using FTIR microscopy in problem-solving applications. The emphasis is on student sample preparation exercises and the use of different spectral acquisition methods to obtain optimum results.
