Program offers Master’s or Ph.D. students the opportunity to receive an advanced spectrometer to support and encourage innovative research
BOULDER, Colo. – September 29, 2015 – ASD Inc., a PANalytical company and global leader in high-performance NIR analytical instrumentation and materials analysis solutions, is now accepting submissions for the 2016 Goetz Instrument Program.
Students with the most groundbreaking research proposals will receive a FieldSpec® 4 Standard-Res spectroradiometer, a Field-Spec HandHeld 2 spectroradiometer, or a QualitySpec® Trek spectrometer for a specified period of time. Each instrument is known for outstanding performance and portability. The spectrometers can be used by students for a wide range of field research applications such as image interpretation, ground truthing, materials classification and ecological impact analyses.
Program submissions should be unique to the field and do not need to be of immediate practical application or have a guarantee of success. Additional consideration will be given to innovative proposals that creatively bridge boundaries between traditional disciplines.
Students who are enrolled in a master’s or Ph.D. program within an accredited college or university in any country where ATA Carnet documentation for shipments is accepted are encouraged to apply. Proposals for the Goetz Program must be submitted by October 15.
Recipients are also eligible for up to USD 500 to cover the cost of publication fees and/or travel assistance for the presentation of an accepted abstract at a relevant scientific conference.
In recognition of ASD Inc. co-founder Dr. Alexander Goetz and his life-long contribution to the science of remote sensing, the Goetz Instrument Support Program was established to encourage creative research within the remote sensing and field spectroscopy academic community. Since its establishment in 2007, the Goetz Program has supported the academic community with temporary field instrument loans for a wide variety of innovative master’s and Ph.D. related research projects.
