Featured Customer Story

Dr. Jay Deiner uses Origin in his research at the City University of New York in the area of materials development and digital fabrication of electrocatalytic devices such as batteries and fuel cells. In addition, Dr. Deiner teaches several undergraduate chemistry courses including CHEM 3412, Instrumental Methods of Analysis. He uses Origin to teach data analysis concepts and skills:

"One of the most important skills in CHEM 3412 is learning how to process the data that comes from scientific instruments (and in fact appreciating that you must process data in detail to gain maximum information from it)."

"I believe that using Origin benefits the students because they learn how to use a sophisticated data analysis program that they may encounter in future work in academic research or in industry. It also enables them to extract much more information from the data they generate. Finally, it helps students understand that much of science is thinking and data analysis."
