STRATFORD, UK - The 2009 Thermo Scientific Spectroscopy User Meeting will take place Sept. 14-15, 2009, in Stratford, UK. An early evening applications workshop and a chance to use a range of instrumentation will take place on Sept. 14, followed by an evening event that features dinner. The scientific program will take place the next day on Sept. 15. It will feature talks from spectroscopy instrument users, covering a wide range of applications and techniques. In addition, applications specialists will provide an update on recent advances in the use of infra-red, near infra-red, Raman and UV spectroscopy. There will also be the opportunity to see current-generation spectroscopy systems in operation and see how sample handling and data analysis tools have changed over the years.
Attendance is free of charge on a first-come- first-served basis. Visit to register.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has also teamed up with Oak Ridge National Laboratory to co-host a free webinar, “XPS for Energy & Environmental Materials Characterization.” The webinar will be offered Tuesday, Aug. 13, at various times during the day and evening.
Aimed at materials scientists, nano-technologists or engineers working with materials for energy and environment-related projects, this webinar will discuss and advise attendees on how X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) can be applied to their research through real-application examples.
In addition, the webinar will introduce attendees to advanced XPS technology and software for producing world-class data. A panel of XPS experts from Thermo Fisher Scientific and Oak Ridge National Laboratory will answer questions following the 30-minute webinar.
