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.
A research team at Osaka University has developed an approach to increase the resolution of multichannel spectrometers.
Researchers at Northwestern University have created a new method (gradient-assisted multi-dimensional electronic Raman spectroscopy) to extract the static and dynamic structure of complex chemical systems. This new method uses four spectral dimensions to resolve structure to reveal hidden features of molecular structure.
TOPTICA Photonics and Menlo Systems have entered into a license agreement for the use of patented frequency comb technology.
Quantum mechanics dictates how particles and forces interact, and thus how atoms and molecules work, for example, what happens when a molecule goes from a higher-energy state to a lower-energy one. But beyond the simplest molecules, the details become very complex. Now, a Pixel-Imaging Mass Spectrometry camera and a femtosecond vacuum ultraviolet light source are showing how does quantum...
Analytik have been appointed as exclusive distributors for the NeoSpectra range of low-cost, miniaturised, OEM FT-NIR spectral sensors.
Nanostructure-based lenses provide focussing and dispersion, and allow smaller devices with increased functionality.
A new approach has been shown to decrease the emission linewidth from a molecule; one of the key aims in precision spectroscopy.
Spectral and lifetime properties of the enhanced upconversion and downconversion mechanism of shell-enhanced lanthanide-doped nanocrystals revealed through luminescence spectroscopy.
Researcher from the Graphene Flagship have developed a novel graphene-based infrared (IR) detector demonstrating record high sensitivity for thermal detection. Graphene’s unique attributes pave the way for high-performance IR imaging and spectroscopy.
Researchers have nearly doubled the continuous output power of a terahertz quantum cascade laser. Increasing the continuous output power of these lasers is an important step toward increasing the range of practical applications.
New broad-band tuneable infrared laser is single-chip, solid-state and offers high-power rapid tuning.
A superconducting insert coil made from a copper-oxide-based ceramic, YBCO, has raised the magnetic field achievable to 25 Tesla.
Swiss researchers improve an interferometry technique by utilising the interference fringe, an aspect previously viewed as a nuisance, and increase the efficiency of X-ray flux.
Brillouin spectroscopy has been an effective tool for non-invasively examining materials for several decades, and with a new spectrometer design can now tackle biological samples.
Terahertz radiation is of growing interest due to its potential for new spectroscopy and imaging applications as well as wireless communication networks with extremely high bandwidth. However, there are few off-the-shelf components available for manipulating terahertz waves.
The US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Sciex of Framingham, MS, USA, have signed a licensing agreement for technologies that speed up, simplify and expand the use of mass spectrometry instrumentation.
A chip-based device can generate a laser signal with frequencies spaced in a comb-like fashion. In general, light and water waves alike stretch out and dissipate as they move further and further away from their source. However, there is a type of wave that maintains its shape as it propagates: solitons.
Photonis USA has announced that it has reached an agreement with MasCom Technologies GmbH of Bremen, Germany, to stock and resell a wide selection of discrete dynode electron multipliers designed for use in inductively coupled mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) instruments. The agreement adds to Photonis’ extensive line of electron multiplier products.
A new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) shows that gas chromatography mass spectrometry fundamentally alters the samples it analyses.
