Webinar - Near-Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy and NIRvascan Instrument
01/30/2019 14:00 to 01/30/2019 15:00 (America/Montreal)
Rez Mani did an M.Eng in Engineering Physics focused on optical properties of semiconductors from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. This followed by a Ph.D. in Earth and Space Science focused on satellite optical instrumentation from York University in Toronto, Ontario. After working in the industry for 10 years where he participated in a multitude of optical/laser/spectroscopic projects, he returned to York University as a contract faculty and a research associate in 2011. He has also worked for Allied Scientific Pro as a consultant since 2011 and as an application scientist since 2017.
The level 2 photometry webinar builds on the concepts of the level 1 webinar. It contains a photometry section that discusses photometric quantities such as luminous intensity, luminous power, illuminance, and luminance. A few example problems which involve these quantities are solved. The webinar also contains a colorimetry section that shows more TM30-18 graphical examples for real-life sources. It also discusses Annex E which is a set of recommendations by IES for specifying the light source color rendition.Once you are registered you will be receiving a Gotomeeting or WebEx link and code to get in the webinar, stay tuned!

Host: Rez Mani did his PhD from York University in 2001 in satellite spectroscopic instrumentation. He worked in the industry for nearly 9 years, during which he participated in many optical, laser and spectroscopic projects where he worked with many different types of high power lasers such as Nd:YAG, CO2 and Ti:Sapphire. He returned to York University in 2011 as a researcher and a contract faculty. He currently teaches the course "Atmospheric Pollution" for the department of Natural Science at York University. He has also been collaborating with Allied Scientific Pro as a consultant for more than 6 years and recently as an application scientist for more than a year.
Webinar Description: The webinar begins by explaining the fundamental differences between the near IR and mid -IR spectroscopy methods. The fundamental absorption bands exist in the mid-IR region, however overtones which are weaker can be found in the near IR region. Mid-IR instruments such as FTIR are expensive and bulky. Several industries are now turning to near IR spectroscopy for quality control since it is a fast and inexpensive method which uses light weight portable spectrometers. NIR can be used to find the ingredients of food such as sugar, protein, moisture and fat, ingredients of drugs, sort plastics for recycling, find the roasting degree in coffee beans, polyester content of fabrics, and many other applications. Instead of using an array detector which is more expensive a new method called Digital Light Processing or (DLP) uses micromirrors to shine different parts of the spectrum one after another onto a single element detector and builds the spectrum. The technology and its applications are very promising.
