Polymers, Tablets and Tissue – The Third Way in Spectroscopy for Process Monitoring

Professor Suresh Thennadil, Director of North Australian Centre for Oil and Gas (NACOG), will speak on developing near infrared (NIR) technology for process monitoring and non-invasive medical diagnostics across a range of applications.

Smaller, cheaper and robust NIR instruments are becoming increasingly available, and the rich physical and chemical information contained in the NIR spectra offer great promise for a wide range of applications. These include applications crucial to our health such as characterisation of tissue for medical diagnostics, fruit and vegetable grading, characterising pharmaceutical suspensions for monitoring quality, and potentially counterfeit drug detection. Other applications include process monitoring techniques, which are not only important for process control and optimisation, but also for condition monitoring, which can be vital to give adequate warnings of malfunction due to deterioration of equipment in industries such as oil and gas, mining or even agriculture.
