This new software is designed to work on MIDAC's FTIR spectrometer systems. Building on the original AutoQuant software, AutoQuant Pro uses a version of the multivariate CLS algorithm created by NASA at the Kennedy Space Center to boost computational speed and performance. A new graphic user interface includes organized displays and menus for tasks ranging from setting instrument parameters to building accurate analytical methods for quantifying components of complex mixtures. The software gains a more accurate sample analysis by allowing multiple calibration points and spectra over the anticipated concentration range, which uses the point closest to the actual concentration of the sample. It also contains enhancements for CEM/CPM applications such as improved data output capability, multiple data collect options, and printable concentration charts and absorbance spectra.
A middle school team from Rochester, Mich., has again nabbed the grand prize in the annual international Future City Competition, which drew students from 37 regions of the United States, as well as from England and China.
The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
