Applied Spectroscopy (IS)

This group emphasizes the application of optical spectroscopy to detection and sensing problems in environmental, atmospheric, combustion, defense, and biomedical fields. Examples of applied spectroscopy might include VNIR sensing and processing for food characterization and process control, optical techniques used in forensics, chem/bio detection and warning applications, and chemical analysis.
