Redmond, WA (PRWEB) February 7, 2011
Come visit the Pacific Northwest for a two-day hands-on seminar on LIBS, a rapid and preparation-free elemental analysis method that yields quantitative analysis for many sample types. Interact with experts Dr. Steven Buckley and Dr. Gregg Lithgow, who will intersperse classroom learning with hands-on experience on Photon Machines' commercial Insight and Spectrolaser LIBS systems. Bring your samples to the class for real-time analysis.
The course fee of $1150 includes two days of classes and demonstrations and a group dinner on the second evening of the class. Accommodations are available at reasonable, negotiated rates. Topics include analysis of different sample types, hardware choices such as laser energy, laser wavelength, and spectrometer choice, and methods of qualitative and quantitative analysis, including chemometrics, using Photon Machines' software. We will also cover use of third-party chemometric software for LIBS analysis.
Once you have taken this class you will have a full appreciation of the power of LIBS analysis. Photon Machines' staff is also happy to recommend area attractions to enhance your stay before or after the course, including excellent local skiing (over 150 inches of base snow expected by March), the Boeing Museum of Flight, and other Seattle attractions.
