Simulators for the web (Sim4Web) is a web based browser environment, hosted “in the cloud” that allows users to perform experiments using virtual apparatus and  UV-Vis absorption spectrometer simulators. Sim4Web is held in a secure location that requires a user to register and log onto the web site.

Sim4Web: A New Concept in Education!

Use an absorption spectrometer simulator through your web browser and enter a virtual
laboratory with chemicals, a wet bench and carefully designed undergraduate experiments
for chemistry, physics, biology, general science, forensic science and pharmacy students!

Then study your virtual solutions using the UV-Vis absorption spectrometer simulator.

The UV-Vis Absorption Spectrometer Simulator

Our UV-Vis absorption spectrometer simulator allows users to set up the wavelength range control the scan speed, set the mode of operation (absorbance or transmittance) or operate at a single wavelength –it’s just like using the real thing!
