Explore Stokes Shift with Spectral Analysis®

We’re “stoked” about the addition of fluorescence to the latest version of Spectral Analysis®. It allows students to see the Stokes shift between the absorption and emission spectra.

What Instructors Are Saying

"We have over 6,000+ students per year in our undergraduate chemistry lab courses. Logger Pro is the single most important piece of software in our undergraduate teaching labs."

Mark Yanagihashi, Ph.D.

University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona

"Vernier equipment has transformed many of our science laboratory exercises, and our students now design many of their own experiments, gather quantitative data in real time, and graphically summarize the results to share with their colleagues."

Jeffery R. Bunkelmann, Ph.D.

Central Arizona College, Coolidge, Arizona

"Your lab books have given us the opportunity to create custom labs speciffically for the course we teach at Kishwaukee College."

Alan Edgecombe, Ph.D.

Kishwaukee College, Malta, Illinois

"We have about ten adjunct chemistry instructors at any given time and having access to the Vernier labs has provided consistency and challenge for our students with minimal training time for part-time faculty."

Kathleen Carrigan, Ph.D.

Portland Community College, Portland, Oregon

"The fact that most of it [hardware] is used in the introductory chemistry classes speaks to the ruggedness and utility of the devices."

Ed Gray, Ph.D.

West Hartford, Connecticut

"The incorporation of the Vernier Suite has allowed us to continue doing some of the traditional experiments, but with a greater operational simplicity such that all students are involved and one poor person is not stuck looking at a stopwatch and recording temperatures for the duration of the experiment."

James K. Murray, Jr. Ph.D.

Immaculata University, Chester County, Pennsylvania

Upcoming Conferences

We’re Your College Chemistry Team

  • Elaine Nam, Ph.D.

    Dr. Elaine Nam, Ph.D.

    I am the Director of Chemistry at Vernier Software & Technology and have 10 years of college chemistry teaching experience. I received my Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Washington where my work focused on synthesis of cysteinate-ligated, non-heme iron enzyme analogues.

    One of my passions is science education. I have presented at the American Chemical Society meetings and have given talks about STEM education. As a member of the American Chemical Society, I have served as Secretary for the local Portland section.

  • Melissa Hill, Ph.D.

    Dr. Melissa Hill, Ph.D.

    I earned my Ph.D. in Biophysical Chemistry from the University of California at Davis. I started working at Vernier Software & Technology in 2010, after teaching undergraduate and graduate level courses for seven years.

    My focus at Vernier is developing college-level chemistry instruments, including the Polarimeter, the Mini GC Plus, the Vernier UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, and the Vernier Fluorescence/UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, among others.
