Spectroscopic data analysis

In all forms of spectroscopy, as in many other fields, several technological breakthroughs have dramatically increased the amount, rate and precision of experimental data that can be recorded. In parallel, there have been important advances in the field of data analysis which can greatly assist in the task of extracting information from multi-spectra datasets.

In this workshop, a brief introductory lecture will be followed by hands-on tutorials on spectroscopy data analysis, including principal component analysis (PCA) and blind source separation methods. Most examples will be taken from the field of analytical electron microscopy (i.e. EELS and EDX) but the same methodology can be applied to most multi-dimensional datasets. No previous knowledge is required. The attendees are required to bring a computer. The software, which is open-source and runs in Windows, Linux and Mac, will be provided during the workshop.
