Next short course to be held in May 2017
2015 NIST Spectrophotometry Short Course
May 18-22, 2015
NIST Gaithersburg, Maryland
The NIST Spectrophotometry Short Course is a 5-day course held at NIST Gaithersburg, Maryland. The course consists of lectures and hands-on laboratory experiments covering the fundamentals of optical properties measurements, such as transmittance, reflectance, and BRDF. Important sources of uncertainty and the relative merits of different experimental techniques, including dispersive, Fourier-transform, and laser-based schemes, are also addressed. The course concludes with laboratory presentations by the students and an open discussion forum with NIST scientists.
Attendance for the course is limited to 12 participants. Pre-registration is required and acceptance is determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
Who Should Attend
This course is intended for engineers, scientists, technicians, managers, or others involved in the design or use of optical instrumentation, optical testing, or physical sciences in which optical properties of materials measurements are important.
