The Spectroscopy Net . com web site part of the "Gateway
The Spectroscopy Net dot com was
originally designed by Dr Richard Payling to
bring optical 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 and
Glow Discharge dot Com are open, free resources for Spectroscopists
everywhere and everyone interested in Atomic Spectroscopy.
History: (300 BC to 1988 AD) light, optics, atomic
Theory: atomic spectra, energy levels, emission lines, wavelengths
Techniques: ICP, Spark source, Emission
Instruments: diffraction gratings, optical spectrometers, detectors
Workshops: measurement statistics, calibration, analysis
* 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.
There used to be 7
sites which are currently regrouped and restructured to make
the information more easily available. The home site
TheSpectroscopyNet.com, 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: EMDPA Elemental
and Molecular Depth Provile Analysis,
and GLADNET (Glow
Discharge Analytical Spectroscopy Network) Links to the site of these
projects are available on the vertical menu bar.
