Tony Davies Column

The Tony Davies Column alternates between chemometrics and data handling and standards, as well as a wide range of EU and other initiatives across the whole of spectroscopy.

Tony-DaviesTony (A.N.) Davies has been a columnist for Spectroscopy Europe since its inception. Together with Tony (A.M.C.) Davies he has produced the “Tony Davies” column until Tony’s retirement in 2014. Tony (A.N.) is Lead Scientist with AkzoNobel RD&I Expert Capability Group in Measurement and Analytical Science in Deventer, The Netherlands and is Professor of Analytical Science at the University of South Wales in the UK.

Examining diffuse reflection and transmission spectra more thoroughly: Part 2. Sample temperature and sample composition

TD-24_02-F13-sThe Tony Davies Column once again contains a contribution from Karl Norris, who is widely regarded as the “father of NIR spectroscopy”. Karl continues to produce innovative ideas about the field and this article is no different. Building on the previous article concerning fourth derivatives, Karl has investigated the effect of varying gap sizes with some remarkable results.

Your committee needs you!

TD-24_01-F1-sTony (A.N.) Davies is after your advice in his latest column “Your committee needs you!”. The IUPAC Subcommittee on Electronic Data Standards is keen to learn about areas where you would like to see improvements in moving your data between your analytical instruments and data analysis and reporting packages.

Examining diffuse reflection and transmission spectra more thoroughly: Part 1. Instrument noise

This Tony Davies Column is contributed by Karl Norris, known to many as “The father of near infrared spectroscopy”. He introduces his calculation method for fourth derivatives and shows how it can be used to extract instrument noise.
