Grant will allow Keene State to purchase spectrometer
The grant, administered by the National Science Foundation, will allow the school to purchase the 400 megahertz spectrometer, a scientific instrument that can measure properties of light in order to identify materials. Keene State researchers will use the spectrometer to advance their study of tuberculosis and cholera, among other areas.
The instruments that were invented 50 years ago have a lifespan of 20 years and the new purchase will replace a 20-year-old instrument.
“That’s a significant chunk of change for any college, but particularly a small state school,” he said. “Without it we would be lost. You wouldn’t get the students the experience they need and the faculty research would be impossible. You would really struggle without this instrument.”
