A system to identify mineral components from near-infrared spectra by applying a neural network technique was examined. Reflective spectral data at 240 wavelength points for the wavelength range between 1300 and 2400 nm were entered into the input layer of a three-layered neural network trained by the error-back-propagation method. Spectra of various kinds of pure and mixed samples were used for the training, and the mineral components contained in the test samples were examined. As a result, a neural network to identify six kinds of mineral components with a probability of nearly 100% was constructed, and the possibility to develop a system to identify mineral components rapidly is demonstrated.
