William F. Meggers Award of the SAS presented to FBH authors

The paper "Shifted Excitation Raman Difference Spectroscopy with Charge-Shifting Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) Lock-In Detection" was honored with the prestigious William F. Meggers Award of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS). The prize was awarded at the SAS fall meeting during the SciX 2020 conference. It recognizes the publication of the authors Kay Sowoidnich, Michael Towrie, Martin Maiwald, Bernd Sumpf and Pavel Matousek as the outstanding publication of the year 2019 in the journal "Applied Spectroscopy" (vol. 73, no. 11, pp. 1265-1276). The paper is one result of the very successful collaboration between the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Great Britain.

On October 14, 2020 the authors will be giving a virtual plenary presentation of the award-winning work at the SciX conference. An interview of the laureate Kay Sowoidnich with Spectroscopy Magazine is available online.
