Opening the Door to Science
New technology is making even high-end instruments more affordable and accessible to science students.
Simon Nunn knows firsthand the impact having access to high-end instruments can have on a science student’s growth.
“I can remember getting my start in spectroscopy and what inspired me was hands-on access to spectrometers,” he said. “I was absolutely amazed that you could understand the molecular structure of a material simply by shining a light at that material and understanding the spectrum that a spectrometer could produce.”
Now 30 years removed from his first experience with spectrometers, Nunn is director of product management for molecular spectroscopy at Thermo Fisher Scientific, highlighting just how important hands-on experience is for students’ future careers.
