The mineral olivine, thought to be a major component inside all planetary bodies, holds secrets about the early formation of the solar system, and an IR spectral region can be used to study it remotely.
This review discusses three emerging applications in MSI—clinical, pre-clinical and forensics—and the roadblocks to the expansion of the use of MSI in these areas.
A new 1 GHz solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer is now at field at University of Warwick.
A team of scientists and students from the University of Sheffield has published the blueprints for a specialist single-molecule microscope they built for a tenth of the cost of commercially available equipment.
Researchers have developed a new imaging spectrometer that is much lighter and smaller than state-of-the-art instruments while maintaining the same high level of performance. Because of its small size and modular design, the new instrument has obvious applications to airborne vehicles and even planetary exploration missions.
New research reveals that applying a magnetic field to a chiral metamaterial can change the way it polarises light.
Nuclear and atomic physicists and nuclear chemists of Mainz University and GSI are closely involved in the EU Innovative Training Network on Laser Ionisation and Spectroscopy of Actinide Elements.
New virtual format for the 72nd Pittsburgh Conference.
A new, ERC-funded project, HiSCORE, aims to develop a method for high throughput screening using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Fluorescence spectroscopy can identify the geographical origins of wines originating from three wine regions of Australia and from Bordeaux in France with 100 % accuracy.
In a proof-of-principle experiment, Nathalie Picqué and Theodor Hänsch from the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the Ludwig-Maximilian University have recorded broad spectra with close to 100,000 wavelengths in almost complete darkness.
Howard Mark and Jerry Workman have been awarded the 2020 Gold Medal by the New York section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.
Mass spectrometry, XRF and NIR spectroscopy are being used together with voltammetry to determine the origin of ancient ceramic fragments.
Chinese customers of PicoQuant will benefit from a website in Chinese and a local presence.
Shimadzu opened a branch office in Denmark in September, providing local support.
Researchers have developed a novel ultrafast coherent light source in the extreme ultraviolet (XUV) wavelength region with multi-MHz range repetition rates by utilising intracavity high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in a Yb:YAG thin-disk mode-locked oscillator.
Initial findings from a new study using gas chromatography-ion mobility spectrometry has shown how Covid-19 can be detected via a non-invasive breath test, providing almost instant results.
University of South Australia scientists have used mass spectrometry imaging to identify signs of osteoarthritis.
Tohoku University researchers have improved a method for probing semiconducting crystals with light to detect defects and impurities.
Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate is a promising tool for diagnosing prostate cancer.
