NESAS - New England Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy
NESAS is the New England Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of information related to spectroscopy. The SAS is the publisher of the internationally recognized, peer reviewed journal Applied Spectroscopy.
Welcome to the New England Section Society of Applied Spectroscopy Web Site. This is where you find out all the details about our upcoming events. In normal times we hold in-person dinner meetings every 6-8 weeks which feature non-commercial presentations on varied topics of spectroscopy. We're moving to a virtual setting for at least the next few months and will be featuring lunch time talks and will be sharing meetings with the New York Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy. We hope to "see" you at our meetings!
Upcoming Section Events
The First Student meeting of the Coblentz Society and NE & NY Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) Sections
Thursday March 3rd, 12:00 noon EST Virtual Meeting
The Coblentz Society, New York SAS and New England SAS Sections are hosting a conference for presentations by Ph.D. students from across the world working in all fields of vibrational spectroscopy. We hope that this will provide an opportunity to showcase developments at the leading edge of vibrational spectroscopy and will cover applications of vibrational spectroscopy over a wide range of disciplines.
We plan on resuming our meetings / presentations early in 2022, we'll be sending out announcements once we lock in the dates.
