For the first time, researchers have succeeded in establishing the relationships between 200-million-year-old plants using infrared spectroscopy and statistical analysis of organic molecules in fossil leaves.
A non-destructive, quality control method based on Raman spectroscopy and developed by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is helping to commercialise wafer-scale fabrication technology for the 2D material MoS2.
Three papers have received WITec Paper Awards for their work using WITec correlative confocal Raman microscopes.
Agilent Technologies has acquired Cobalt Light Systems, a provider of Raman spectroscopic instruments for the pharmaceutical industry, applied markets and public safety for £40 million.
Achema 2018 is inviting contributions to the Achema Congress and the PRAXISforums; deadline 22 September 2017.
A cooperation between Messe München India and the Indian Pharma Machinery Manufacturers Association (IPMMA) will collocate events jointly representing 600+ global and Indian companies.
WITec, the Raman imaging company, was founded in 1997 and is now celebrating its 20th Anniversary.
Waters has announced that Brazil’s National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) has approved certain of their chromatography and mass spectrometry systems.
Thermo Fisher Scientific and Biognosys’s agreement covers data-independent acquisition workflows.
Shimadzu and Phytronix to offer triple ion source (LDTD-MS/MS, ESI-MS/MS and APCI-MS/MS).
Thomas Rizzo and co-authors receive the 2017 Ron Hites Award for their paper “Infrared Spectroscopy of Mobility-Selected H+-Gly-Pro-Gly-Gly (GPGG)”.
Ryan Julian is the 2017 Recipient of the Biemann Medal, which recognises significant achievement made in the early stages of a career.
Cathy Costello is the 2017 Recipient of the ASMS Award for a Distinguished Contribution in Mass Spectrometry, which recognises a singular significant achievement.
The structures and functions of a transient enzyme state have been mapped for the first time using NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography.
Avantes China are celebrating their 10th anniversary with prizes and gifts for their customers.
Chiral sum frequency generation spectroscopy is a comparatively new technique involving the interaction of two beams of different frequencies. It is providing important information about how water interacts with biological systems such as DNA.
Scientists at the University of Sheffield have used NMR spectroscopy to examine the molecules in live sperm, and early data suggests it could discriminate between populations of good and poor sperm. Thus, it might be useful to improve diagnosis of sperm problems because it is non-destructive, so the sperm examined could be used in fertility treatments after analysis.
Ultraviolet spectropolarimetry has produced some unexpected results from analysis of solar radiation, showing important information on aspects of the Sun’s magnetic field.
A Japanese research group has developed new techniques to perform analysis and imaging of chemical elements by taking images of a target material using an ordinary, visible-light digital camera with a slight modification, and obtaining X-ray spectra from processed images.
Spectroscopy imaging on the nanoscale is being helped by a new fibre nanoimprinting process.
