Eigenvector Research is pleased to present “Chemometrics in SIMS” at the SIMS XXII conference in Kyoto, JAPAN. The workshop is Sunday morning, October 20 from 9am to 12pm and will held in the ROHM Theatre Kyoto, 3rd Floor, Conference Room 2. (This is the same building as the SIMS XXII Welcome Reception.)

Chemometrics in SIMS covers methods for dealing with the discontinuous spectra produced by Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry. Methods for single sample SIMS will be discussed along with SIMS in surface analysis, where images are produced with an entire SIMS spectra for each pixel.

The three-hour course will focus on the most essential of chemometric techniques, Principal Components Analysis (PCA). Preprocessing and data issues particular to SIMS will be discussed. PCA for Multivariate Image Analysis (MIA) will be demonstrated for surface SIMS. Classification techniques will also be discussed. The course concludes with an introduction to curve resolution techniques for recovering pure spectra from mixtures.

The workshop will be presented by Eigenvector Research President and co-founder Barry M. Wise, Ph.D. Wise is creator of the popular PLS_Toolbox suite of chemometric tools. He is also winner of the 2001 EAS Award for Achievements in Chemometrics and the 2019 Wold Medal.

Unable to attend the workshop? Eigenvector will also be hosting a luncheon seminar, “Multivariate Analysis of SIMS Images with MIA_Toolbox/Solo+MIA” on Tuesday, October 22, at 1:15pm in Room 3.

We look forward to seeing you in Kyoto, JAPAN!
