"From Tom Gallagher's lab to Wall Street (almost)"
This talk features four of Tom Gallagher's former students who took what they learned in graduate school and turned it into a successful Charlottesville-based technology company (Lighthouse Instruments). The talk will explore frequency modulation spectroscopy and its evolution over the last 20 years from the lab to a proven technology used in the manufacture pharmaceutical products. Frequency modulation spectroscopy is a high sensitivity form of laser absorption spectroscopy useful for gas phase measurements. The method was introduced to the pharmaceutical industry in the late 90's by Lighthouse and has found widespread adoption in R&D labs and manufacturing plants.
