Common Problems in Infrared Spectroscopy – How to Identify and Fix Them
Presented by Ellen V. Miseo, Ph.D. of TeakOrigin, Inc.
September 1, 2020 (1:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST)
Cost: $199

Infrared (IR) spectroscopy, known to many people who use it as Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) because FT-IR instruments are the most common type of instrument design, is a very powerful approach for both determining the identity of materials and quantifying components in a mixture. Coupled with ATR (attenuated total reflection) as the sampling approach it becomes very easy to obtain spectra from a sample. But these techniques only work if the operator understands the abilities and limitation of both the instrument and the sampling approach. We will discuss some of the benefits and pitfalls of FTIR, and how to address three common types of problems.

Why is leadership so lacking in all corners of society? What can I do about it? This webinar will address the need for leadership in technical organizations, how positive examples set by leaders at all levels can reverse the troubling trend, and how confidence and trust is built among teams. A leader, whether new in the position or an experienced veteran, relies on skills of positive communications, compassion, empathy, and clearly delivered direction to effectively build trust, develop positive conversations, and deliver results from the team. What techniques are used? How can I become effective in building these qualities in myself? This webinar addresses these topics in this insightful and impactful webinar.
