Nominations for the 2019 Norman Sheppard Award are invited.
The new matrix-assisted ionisation in vacuum (MAIV) technique has been used to generate mass spectrometry images for the first time. The technique’s ability to generate multiply charged ions from peptides and proteins facilitates their identification by tandem mass spectrometry.
We are sad to announce that Karl Norris passed away peacefully on 17 July 2019 at the age of 98.
A fast, tuneable quantum cascade laser can cover the fingerprint region in 1 ms.
The secret of how seals are able to spend 90 % of their lives at sea holding their breath, without starving their brains of oxygen, has been revealed using NIR spectroscopy.
Visible spectroscopy has identified deposits of NaCl on Jupiter’s moon Europa.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and collaborators have demonstrated a compact frequency-comb apparatus that rapidly measures the entire infrared wavelength region.
A step forward toward achieving nanoscale imaging and spectroscopy with tailored “nanolight”.
Tohoku University researchers use an integrating sphere and photoluminescence spectroscopy to measure the electronic and optical properties of large semiconducting crystals.
Young scientists can apply for laboratory bench space for their own research in “Shimadzu Laboratory World”.
HighChem, provider of mass spectrometry software, has been acquired by Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Biotage and Yingsheng are to collaborate in the Chinese market for clinical mass spectrometry applications.
Nuclear magnetic resonance measurement and state-of-the-art computational science reveal protein structures in higher eukaryotic cells.
Together with partners from research and industry, Fraunhofer IAF has developed a hand-held, QCL-based scanner for hazardous substances as part of the CHEQUERS EU project.
A team of researchers led by the Max Born Institute has provided the experimental and theoretical groundwork to interpret X-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectroscopic signals from magnetic materials.
Using deep-level transient spectroscopy, a team of scientists at The University of Manchester has solved a key flaw in solar panels after 40 years of research around the world.
Verdel Instruments Ltd, a spin-out company of the University of Warwick, UK, has developed new two-dimensional mass spectrometry technology and has raised seed investment.
Danish researchers have developed a high-resolution imaging method that can capture mid-infrared spectral images on the order of milliseconds.
X-ray imaging reveal an extinct mouse had brown to reddish fur on its back and sides and had a tiny white tummy.
For the first time it is possible to measure, simultaneously and with extreme precision, four rare molecular variants of carbon dioxide (CO2) using a novel laser spectrometer.
