About SAS

The Society for Applied Spectroscopy is a non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of information related to spectroscopy. In business for over 60 years, the Society is committed to education and to providing quality benefits to members worldwide. The objective of this Society is to advance and disseminate knowledge and information concerning the art and science of spectroscopy and other allied sciences. We are pleased to be the publishers of the internationally recognized, peer reviewed journal Applied Spectroscopy.

Our SAS governing body consists of a member elected Executive Committee and Governing Board. Both meet regularly to ensure the Society is functioning at the highest level possible providing our members with the most for their membership dollars.

Supporting our Executive Committee and Governing Board are a host of working committees and sections that implement the ideas and projects that will help our members become better scientists. Any member is eligible to serve on the Governing Board and committees and we welcome any and all volunteers. This is a member driven society and your input is crucial.

Our corporate sponsors and your donations enable SAS to help build spectroscopy’s future. Your tax deductible contribution is greatly appreciated. Numerous donor levels are available to suit any budget from SAS Friend to Lifetime Donor.

SAS’ annual meeting is held in conjunction with the SciX Meeting presented by the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) each Fall. We host numerous events and symposia at SciX and your SAS membership gets you a discount to attend. In addition to SciX, SAS supports several other meetings including PITTCON where we also host a number of events for our members. Please visit us on the exhibit floor at these meetings.

The Society has long and rich history as the premier spectroscopic information source for scientists.

Please join us and become active in your professional membership society.
