Paper Abstract

The use of portable hand held computing devices for the acquisition of spectrochemical data is briefly discussed using examples from the author’s laboratory. Several network topologies are evaluated. At present, one topology that involves a portable computing device for data acquisition and spectrometer control and that has wireless access to the internet at one end and communicates with a smart phone at the other end appears to be better suited for “taking part of the lab to the sample” types of applications. Thus, spectrometric data can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
