Advanced Spectroscopic Techniques Course
Apr. 4, 2017 - Apr. 5, 2017
Bothell, WA, United States
About this Event
This class will benefit those who perform both routine and irregular interpretation of spectroscopic signals in both process and laboratory settings. By the end of the course, attendees will have been instructed on spectroscopy best practices and the practical application of cutting edge techniques, including: optimizing calibration models using robust statistics, applying transfer of calibration through augmentation, piecewise, or direct methods, understanding where and how to use locally weighted regression, choosing appropriate preprocessing techniques and how that affects model quality, avoiding overfitting calibration models and observing how they can be used for longer periods, examining both spectroscopic resolution and registration as a source of error in calibration modeling, and evaluating the trade-offs in deploying global models compared to optimizing every instrument separately.
