A simple method for linearizing nonlinear spectra for calibration Conference Paper uri icon


  • The development and acceptance of spectral calibration methods has been an important success story for the field of chemometrics. This paper contains a new study of a very old calibration method (K-matrix calibration, parallel calibration, or generalized inverse prediction) and partial least squares (PLS), the mainstay of modern chemometrics. We show that with some modest amount of modification, the old method of calibration is comparable, in terms of prediction, to PLS for spectroscopy involving nonlinear spectral responses. 2002 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
