Ongoing revolution in optical spectroscopy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Recent advances in the capabilities of state-of-the-art array detectors offer exciting new frontiers for exploration. The latest generation of solid state detector arrays, including charge coupled devices (CCDs), charge injection devices (CIDS), and new hybrid devices, are becoming available in a variety of formats. The impact of these detectors on a number of spectroscopic techniques will be discussed. Several applications for improved chemical analysis, including rapid scan, fluorescent and atomic spectroscopy, will be presented as applications to describe a variety of design and software considerations. In each case, the impact of the new capabilities will be demonstrated through examples of experimental system performance. Present and future trends in spectroscopic analysis will be considered.
