The Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) and the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) have announced that JAAS Advisory Board member Professor Ralph Sturgeon of the National Research Council, Canada, has been selected as the recipient of the New England Section of the SAS’s 2012 Lester W. Strock Award.
This award has been established by the New England Section and is given annually to an author in recognition of a selected publication of substantive research in/or application of analytical atomic spectrochemistry in the fields of earth science, life sciences, or stellar and cosmic sciences.
Professor Sturgeon will present the Strock Award Plenary Lecture entitled “Vapor Generation – Make It Your Second Thought for Sample Introduction” on Thursday October 4th at the SciX conference in Kansas, USA.
Ralph follows in the footsteps of other JAAS Board members as recipient of this award, including Gary Hieftje, John Olesik, Detlef Günther and Annemie Bogaerts.
