The overall emphasis in this conference is on advanced technologies for spectroscopic instrumentation, particularly for miniature and portable instruments, but also including novel spectroscopic sources used in the laboratory and process applications (e.g., QCL, ICL, supercontinuum).

The scope focuses on the optical region: UV-visible, infrared, near-infrared, Terahertz, and Raman molecular techniques. However, it also includes advances enabling miniature and portable spectrometers across the electromagnetic spectrum, including x-ray fluorescence, laser induced fluorescence, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry.

The conference includes papers describing breakthrough, novel, recently-introduced, and commercial instrumentation; also the rapidly emerging fields of portable and handheld hyperspectral imaging, spectrometers embedded in consumer goods, ‘smartphone spectroscopy’, ‘citizen spectroscopy’, with cloud-based collection and processing of data from those instruments.

Focus Areas for 2022

A joint session is planned with Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) Sensing, which will include:

Focus Areas for 2022
  • Very low-cost, very compact, spectrometers and hyperspectral imagers (e.g., Si-based sensors using novel photonic technologies, LVFs, discrete and mosaic filters, Fabry-Perots, etc.)
  • Smartphone spectroscopy, including developments for medical point-of-care and personal care applications
  • Portable spectrometers and imagers for consumer and consumer applications (technologies, instruments, applications), including ‘white goods’, personal care devices and smart watches
  • Portable spectrometer algorithms and databases to generate actionable answers in the field
  • Portable hyperspectral imaging (technologies, instruments, applications)
  • Terahertz technologies, instrumentations, and applications
  • Terahertz plasmonics, metamaterials, and 2D terahertz spectroscopy
  • Specific Technology and Applications Areas:
    • Optical food spectroscopy (sorting, freshness, contamination, adulteration, fraud)
    • UV-, gated- and stand-off Raman
    • QCL- and ICL-based spectroscopy
    • Spectroscopy using supercontinuum sources
    • Dual- or Hyphenated-Technology instruments
    • Spectroscopy for communications.

A joint session is planned with Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) Sensing, which will include:
  • Stand-off detection, and drone-mounted spectrometers and imagers
  • New and novel spectroscopic instruments for chemical sensing.
