Topics :

  Tutorial (from the beginner up to upper level) : vibrational spectroscopy, anharmonicity, normal mode, local mode, 2 D correlations, rheo-optical measurements ... instrumentation, Address, applications, glossary...

The Discussion Forum contains over 600 entries (total of questions and answers, Feb 2003) and is becoming a very useful store of advice on a wide variety of questions about NIR applications, chemometrics etc.

To celebrate the 200 th Hershel anniversary, an exhibition of infrared images has been assembled by Dr Helen Walker of Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Didcot, UK. This exhibition will be touring the UK during this year. Contact Dr Walker for dates and locations
