Serdang - Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA), UPM successfully organized “Materials Characterization Seminar: Raman Spectroscopy & FTIR” on 24 to 25 October 2018. The first series of this seminar was held at the ITMA Seminar Hall and attended by 22 participants comprising of students and researchers from UPM, other public universities and industry.
The speakers on the first day consisted of Dr. Rozan Mohamad Yunus (Universiti Kebangsaaan Malaysia), Dr. Syed Muhammad Hafiz Syed Mohd Jaafar (ITMA) and Dr. Nizam Tamchek (Faculty of Science, UPM). The talks are about the characterization of metal oxide as well as carbon-based and amorphous /crystalline-silicon based materials using Raman Spectroscopy. In addition, there was also a Raman Spectroscopy data analysis session using Origin Pro software.
The topics on day two was focusing on the introduction and theoretical on materials characterization using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR). The talk was conducted by Dr. Amir Reza Sadrolhosseini, ITMA research fellow. He also conducted a session for data analysis using IRPal 2.0 software and FTIR demonstration in the ITMA Analysis Laboratory.
MaChas 1.0 is a program for young researchers and students to learn more about the materials characterization techniques by experienced speakers who have been invited. ITMA hopes that this program will help participants in their research activities especially which involving Raman Spectroscopy and FTIR particularly in the future.
