Under appropriate conditions, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy can be used to measure low levels of organics in water. This application note will discuss measuring saccharin to levels below 60 ppm... (View Full Article)
(Spectroscopy)
From this Article:
NIR has been traditionally viewed by spectroscopists trained in laboratory methods as a less-than-useful spectral region that exists to fill the gap between the UV/VIS and IR regions. NIR peaks are... (View Full Article)
