ASD spectra processing with Linux & Python

Iā€™m sharing my workflow for processing and analysing spectra obtained using the ASD Field Spec Pro, partly as a resource and partly to see whether others have refinements or suggestions for improving the protocols. I'm specifically using Python rather than any proprietary software to keep it all open source, transparent and to keep control over … Continue reading ASD spectra processing with Linux & Python

A smartphone-based UV spectrometer

In our new paper we report on some novel tech that uses the sensor in a smartphone for ultraviolet spectroscopy. It is low cost and based entirely on off-the-shelf components plus a 3-D printed case. The system was designed with volcanology in mind - specifically the detection of atmospheric sulphur dioxide, but may also have … Continue reading A smartphone-based UV spectrometer
