The overwhelming response to the free e-learning HPLC and GC courses has encouraged me to move ahead with the free AAS course which was announced earlier. I understand that everyone has busy work schedules and today’s hectic life style leaves you little or no time to refer to voluminous books to learn any technique. However, for sustained growth learning has to be adopted as a lifelong habit.

In an effort to make your learning task easy I have embarked upon the e-learning course which comprises of 10 modules. Each module comprising of about 300 to 400 words will provide functional aspects of AAS and also present useful practical tips. Reading a module and understanding it will not take more than about 10 min and you’ll get ample time to assimilate the contents before you move to the next module.

 The program will cover

  1. Scope of Spectroscopic Analysis
  2. Evolution of Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
  3. Introduction to AAS component parts
  4. Types of Light sources in AAS
  5. Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
  6. Graphite Furnace Automization
  7. Dispersion and Resolution in Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
  8. Interferences in Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
  9. Background Correction in Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
  10. Top 10 Interview Question

The free program is designed to give an insight into the technique and once your interest is captivated you can opt for more elaborate online certificate program which will be announced in due course. It will provide you an opportunity to interact with various learners and experts across the globe.

AAS has emerged as a major analytical technique in diverse fields such as environmental monitoring, mining and geology, oceanographic studies, studies on agricultural crops and soils, pharmaceuticals, foods and beverages, petroleum and petrochemicals, forensic investigations and hydro geological investigations.

Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Please share with your friends and colleagues so that others interested can also take benefit of our free e-learning initiative on analytical techniques

Wishing you success in your pursuits and looking forward to our longtime association. Keep in touch with us on lab-training.com

    Dr Bhanot

    I used some of the information about F-AAS from your online posts and would like to cite them. Don’t you have published materials about spectroscopy that I can read and cite?


    • You can find several articles if you select blogs section and click on spectroscopy. Perhaps you will come across some articles of your interest. Likewise there are several other sections on different analytical techniques which could also provide information that could be of use to you. Thanks for your interest shown .

  10. I am looking for course in Atomic absoption any one send over please
