9780819498243: Fundamentals of Dispersive Optical Spectroscopy Systems (PM242) (SPIE Press Monograpgh)

Bridging the gap between basic theoretical texts and specific system recommendations, Fundamentals of Dispersive Optical Spectroscopy Systems addresses the definition, design, justification, and verification of instrumentation for optical spectroscopy, with an emphasis on the application and realization of the technology. The optical spectroscopy solutions discussed within use dispersive spectrometers that primarily involve diffraction gratings. Topics include dispersive elements, detectors, illumination, calibration, and stray light. This book is suitable for students and for professionals looking for a comprehensive text that compares theoretical designs and physical reality during installation.

About the Author:

Wilfried Neumann was born in 1945 in a small township south of Frankfurt, Germany. After graduating from high school, he was educated in radio and TV electronics. After working in the R&D department of Hottinger-Baldwin-Messtechnik GmbH (in the field of mechanical stress analysis), he attended a college for electronics, highfrequency technology, and computer hardware and software. He earned a degree as an approved technician in 1973. Neumann based his career on signal recovery and optical spectroscopy. He worked in the service, application, sales, and marketing of several pertinent international companies. Early on, he worked in service and applications at Perkin-Elmer (analytical instruments) and Varian (optical spectroscopy, now part of Agilent). Between 1977 and 1989, he was an area sales representative at EG&G Instruments (signal recovery and optical spectroscopy). In 1989, he managed the new division of optical spectroscopy at LOT-Oriel GmbH, a distribution company in the field of technical optics and lasers. One of the companies he marketed in Germany was SOPRA, Inc. (Paris, France), a spectroscopy company; the division developed quickly, and in 1991, Neumann became the founder, shareholder, and CEO of a new branch called SOPRA GmbH. In 2000, he joined Roper Scientific GmbH, the German branch of Roper s CCD and optical imaging and spectroscopy business, headed by Princeton Instruments. He served as area sales and product manager for special, research-oriented spectroscopy systems. After his retirement from regular work in 2005, Neumann started a consulting office, offering spectrometer system maintenance and service, as well as consultation, justification, design, and construction for optical spectroscopy and radiometry. To support this endeavour, and because comprehensive literature on the basics of dispersive optical spectroscopy did not exist, he created a website ( that has since become a popular online resource.
