Abstract:Listening to a paper presented at the Raman Conference in Bangalore, India, in the late summer of 1978, I was pleasantly surprised to hear a RAMALOG laser-Raman system referred to as a "Spex." A few months later, at the Pittsburgh Conference, a speaker called our Mixer/Mill blender/grinder a "Spex." Again, I beamed. But then I wondered: Here were two scientists, each busily engaged in the rather confined field of optical spectroscopy, yet peculiarly poised worlds apart in their interests. Was the one scientist aware that we manufacture a host of sample-preparation devices that boost productivity? Did the other know that we make high-performance research spectrometers?
