Glow discharge dot com is part of the web site system around The Spectroscopy Net and was created by Dr Richard Payling in 1999. Its purpose is to promote knowledge about spectroscopic methods for chemical analysis and about spectroscopy in general.
It has been designed for both people looking for general information and specialists in the field. The Spectroscopy Net therefore contains an educational part with general information on spectroscopy and spectro-chemical methods for analysis, and detailed information of commonly used techniques as well as results of recent development.
We also try to provide information about recent and future events such as training courses, meetings and conferences. Please feel encouraged to keep us informed about such events.
Dr Richard Payling, known to many as just "Dick" died in a tragic mountaineering accident in february 2004.
The Glow-Discharge.com is now managed by Thomas Nelis, currently working the Bern University of Applied sciences in Bienne, Switzerland. He will try to maintain this web site in the spirit of his friend Dick, open to all people interested in the subject. Active participation and support in this challenge by other colleagues and friends of Dick is more then welcome. You are clearly invited to send your comments and possibly scientific and educational contributions.
