Symposium on Applied Spectroscopy and Photonics


The Symposium on Applied Spectroscopy and Photonics 2017 at Purdue University is 1st annual symposium organized by Purdue University Chapter of Society for Applied Spectroscopy (PUCSAS). This annual one-day symposium on advanced fundamental and applied Spectroscopy and Photonics addresses cutting edge Photonics and Spectroscopy techniques including Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), Raman Spectroscopy, Single Photon Spectroscopy, BioPhotonics, Fluoroscence, Laser Spectroscopy, Astronomy, Laser Machining to name a few. The symposium will be organized on Sep 16th, 2017 at Wilmeth Active Learning Center, Purdue University from 11 AM-5 PM.

Our key note lectures from internationally renowned scientists, and accompanying poster sessions encourage discussion on the latest research in the field of Photonics and Spectroscopy. (Final Program to be updated soon)
