Fourier Transform Spectroscopy (FTS)

23 June 2013 – 27 June 2013 OSA Virtual Event

The FTS Topical Meeting addresses laboratory spectroscopy, atmospheric remote sensing, astrophysical observation, industrial applications as well as new instrumental developments, calibration, and algorithms.

Fourier transform spectrometry is growing in application and utilization. It has become the technique of choice in astronomy, Earth and planetary sciences, laboratory spectroscopy, and industrial process control. This meeting encompasses the whole range of FTS technology and applications, including comb techniques, calibration, and data processing algorithms.  This is the only international FTS conference where engineers and scientists from diverse fields can join together to present and discuss new ideas.

Congress Reception
Monday 24 June, 19.00 – 20.30
Join your fellow attendees for the Congress Reception. Enjoy delectable fare while networking. The reception is open to committee/presenting author/student and full conference attendees. Conference attendees may purchase extra tickets for their guest.
Joint Poster Sessions
Tuesday 25, June, 16.30 – 18.00
Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a 4 ft. × 8 ft. (1.22 m × 2.44 m) board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.
