In this workshop, we would like to give you an introduction to FAIR data management and point out the problems present in laboratories that use optical spectroscopy methods such as ellipsometry, Raman spectroscopy, photoluminescence, reflection & transmission spectroscopy. We want to present our approach to map FAIR data as well with examples. We invite you to contribute so that you as well can use these structures as various optical spectroscopy methods have different requirements. We want to use the feedback from discussions to finalize the minimal needs and maximal capabilities, to define a standard, which is used as the base class for all the different spectroscopy methods. 

Workshop agenda

  • Introduction to FAIRmat
  • Introduction to NeXus as a standard for Optical Spectroscopy
  • Current State of this Standard - What is in it and what is not?
  • Discussion and Feedback collection
  • Discussion of Future Plans and Progress

We want to finalize a standard definition for optical spectroscopy, as this standard is the base for specific methods such as ellipsometry, Raman spectroscopy, etc. We want to provide a sophisticated standard, which allows all users to transform their measurement data to FAIR data. We need your ideas, thoughts, and experience – from the perspective of scientists or measurement device providers – to avoid gaps in the broad range of different optical spectroscopy methods.
