ALBA Synchrotron, 1-2 OCT 2018: FTIR microspectroscopy workshop

The infrared beamline MIRAS at ALBA Synchrotron is organizing a 2-day hands-on Workshop on Infrared Microspectroscopy. The workshop will take place at ALBA light source (Cerdanyola del Vallès) on the 1st and 2nd October 2018New Deadline for Registration: August 3, 2018!

The workshop is mainly addressed to non-expert users of infrared microspectroscopy, and will have the participation of international researchers with strong expertise in infrared microspectroscopy in several fields: Dr. Gary Ellis (CSIC, Spain), Prof. Nativitat Salvadó (UPC, Spain), Prof. Josep Sulé-Suso (Keele University, UK) and Prof. Manuel Valiente (UAB, Spain), as well as the participation of the MIRAS team (Dr. Tanja Ducic, Dr. Martin Kreuzer, Dr. Núria Benseny and Dr. Immaculada Martínez-Rovira) lead by Dr. Ibraheem Yousef. 

The workshop will cover the main topics required for a successful infrared microspectroscopy experiment, moving from sample preparation to practical infrared measurements up to data analysis in several relevant applications: biological and biomedical, material science, cultural heritage, etc. For this purpose, the workshop will include lectures on the basis of infrared microspectroscopy, as well as tutorials on infrared measurements at the MIRAS beamline and hands-on training on infrared data analysis software (OPUS, Bruker® and Unscrambler, CAMO®).

  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
