Professor Pavel Matousek
Pavel has worked at the Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire since 1991. He pioneered the concepts of transmission Raman spectroscopy for pharmaceutical analysis and also Kerr gated fluorescence rejection from Raman spectra and Spatially Offset Raman Spectroscopy. Pavel has published over 160 peer reviewed articles and filed 10 patents. He is the recipient of 2009 Charles Mann Award for Applied Raman Spectroscopy from the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) and shares the 2002 and 2006 Meggers Awards from the Society for Applied Spectroscopy. Recently, he acted as the Chair of the Meggers Award Selection Committee and was elected as the Program Chair of FACSS 2011 (Reno, NV). Pavel serves on the Editorial and Editorial Advisory Boards of Applied Spectroscopy, Analyst and Journal of Raman Spectroscopy.
Pavel is an STFC Fellow, FRSC and a Visiting Professor of University College London.
About Cobalt Light Systems
Cobalt Light Systems develops products and technologies for non-invasive materials analysis. Our instruments have applications in many areas including pharmaceutical content testing, materials verification and security/counterfeit applications. Our pioneering TRS100 instrument enables easy-to-use automated TRS analysis and was designed from the ground up for the heavily regulated pharmaceutical industry. Other instruments for pharmaceutical analysis include a non-invasive raw materials verification tool which allows content ID through paper/plastic sacks, opaque plastic containers and coloured glass. Cobalt’s instruments are also available for online implementation.
