Introducing…The Spectroscopist

Welcome to the first issue of our new mini-mag, The Spectroscopist – shining a light on the past, present and future of spectroscopy.

The inaugural issue of The Spectroscopist features a veritable galaxy of stellar scientists. Click here to download the PDF.

Guest Editor Ramon Barnes kicks things off with a thoughtful Editorial, outlining the impact of plasma spectroscopy on science, medicine, commerce and more.

The Upfront section covers everything from LIBS in landfill to water on the moon, while In My View features strong words on the decline of science from Kay Niemax, a plea to protect cross border science from Vince Palleschi and support for the first Latin American LIBS symposium from Citlali Sánchez-Aké.

Our feature focuses on the Stars of Plasma Spectroscopy, as supergiants and bright young sparks alike reflect on personal highlights, review crucial milestones, and predict where the field is – or should be – heading.

Finally, we sit down with Maria Montes-Bayón, Associate Professor in Analytical Chemistry, Department of Physical and Analytical Chemistry, University of Oviedo, Spain.
