Research

The latest technological advances in electronics, physics, optics, acoustics, mechanical engineering and computer science are being utilized to develop new and improved analytical spectrochemical techniques. A multifaceted but strongly interlocking program designed to elucidate fundamental phenomena occurring in systems employed for spectrochemical analysis is currently underway. Fundamental theoretical knowledge obtained in these studies is being applied toward the development of more accurate and sensitive analytical techniques. Read More.
