The 2017 Tomas Hirschfeld Award has been made to Satoru Tsuchikawa of Nagoya University, Japan.
Infrared spectroscopy images provide new insight into the development of plaques in early-stage Alzheimer’s disease.
University of Sydney researchers have used infrared spectroscopy to spotlight changes in tiny cell fragments called microvesicles to probe their role in a model of the body’s immunological response to bacterial infection.
Researchers at Lancaster University have used infrared spectroscopy to detect subtle early warning signs that reveal a frog population is at risk from pollution.
Given the increase in food-related health problems, the challenge set for the EU Horizon’s Food Scanner prize of €1 million was to develop an affordable and non-invasive mobile solution that enables users to measure and analyse their food intake.

High-resolution laser ionisation of radioactive atoms in a supersonic gas jet has been used to probe the properties of heavy elements.
Researchers have reported a new development of hyperspectral infrared nanoimaging. It is based on Fourier transform infrared nanospectroscopy (nano-FT-IR) and enables highly sensitive spectroscopic imaging of chemical composition with nanoscale spatial resolution.
By measuring the height profile of the sample prior to analysis, mass spectrometry imaging can now visualise the distribution of chemical substances on samples with non-flat surfaces.
Nanostructure-based lenses provide focussing and dispersion, and allow smaller devices with increased functionality.
