Chemical Imaging Spectroscopy is the Focus for Pittcon 2013 Waters Symposium
Date:12/27/2012

(PRWEB) December 27, 2012

The Pittcon Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the highlights of the 2013 James L. Waters Annual Symposium, “Chemical Imaging Spectroscopy” which will focus on the commercialization of chemical imaging. Chemical imaging has enabled advancements in the fields of pharmaceutical analysis, polymer characterization and identification of defects in semiconductor materials. It continues to be a key tool in these and in many additional medical and homeland security applications.

This informative symposium will take place during Pittcon on Monday, March 18, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The speakers chosen for the symposium are pioneers in this field and are uniquely qualified to discuss the development of chemical imaging and its commercialization. The session will also focus on the current state of the technique and what the future holds for chemical imaging. Speakers include E. Neil Lewis, ”Chemical Imaging: Those Are Pretty Pictures But Who Gives A Darn!” Patrick J. Treado, “Birth to Young Adulthood of Molecular Chemical Image,” Richard Crocombe, “The Development of Infrared Spectroscopic Imaging and Focalplane Array Detectors: Are FPAs Enabling Technology, Achilles’ Heel, or Both?” and Joachim Koenen, “Confocal Raman Microscopy: From Single Spectra Acquisition to Routine 3D Raman Imaging.”

About the James L. Waters Symposium
The James L. Waters Annual Symposium is a unique component of the Pittcon Technical Program. In 1989, Mr. Waters, founder of Waters Associates, Inc. and president of Waters Business Systems, Inc., proposed that the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP) offer an annual symposium exploring the origin, development, implementation, and commercialization of scientific instrumentation of established and major significance. The objective of the symposium is to recognize workers and the development and application of instrumentation by preserving the early and in some cases, more mature history of the important contributions, as well as the cooperation between inventors, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and marketing organizations. All expenses associated with the symposium are generously funded by Mr. Waters. Administration of the symposium, including selection of the topics and speakers, is the responsibility of the SACP.
