About This Webinar
Light can be used to understand, study, and spectroscopically characterize the many components that may exist in water. Stephanie Butron and Eric Mesa of Hamamatsu Corp. discuss the various markets that benefit from such measurement, the photonic tools currently available to perform such measurement, and how users can select tools for specific applications.

After discussing different optical sensors and light sources for water analysis, Butron and Mesa demonstrate how to set up and perform a typical measurement using one of Hamamatsu Photonics' many spectrometers and one of the company's most popular xenon flash lamp modules. This demonstration includes key pointers to keep in mind when selecting corresponding accessories, as well as solutions to common roadblocks faced when pairing a spectrometer and a flash lamp module. To close, Butron and Mesa share future directions of markets that use spectroscopic water analysis, and up-and-coming spectrometer technology from Hamamatsu Photonics KK.

Who should attend:
Researchers and engineers working with or interested in spectroscopic water analysis. Those working in test and measurement within the agriculture, medical, and consumer industries. Manufacturers whose technology may include detectors and sensors, LEDs, chemicals, and spectroscopy.
