Teledyne CETAC’s HDIP is HDF-based image processing laser ablation software for ICP-MS.
The winner of the 2018 Tomas Hirschfeld Award is Professor Christian Huck.
Applications for this prestigious award are invited by 30 November 2018.
Bruker has acquired Anasys Instruments Corp., maker of the nanoIR products.
The Toucan is a cooled CCD camera for OEM use. It is available with a choice of spectroscopy sensors, FI, BI-DD, BI and OE. It has TE cooling down to –40 °C and a USB 2.0 interface. It is compact and rugged, suitable for integration with MilSpec operating temperatures. Resolutions of 2048 × 264 px and 1024 × 255 px are available.
Spectrolight believe that their TwinFilm technology to filter light according to wavelength will have a big impact on spectral imaging. TwinFilm offers an alternative to monochromators and AOTFs, with a range of custom wavelength selectors in three versions: automated, manual and fixed. Eight devices cover the 350–900 nm range, with a broadband version covering the whole NIR region in...
WITec have introduced a new instrument with their 3D Raman imaging functionality in an inverted microscope.
Rice University scientists are using snapshot hyperspectral imaging to view a field of plasmonic nanoparticles simultaneously to learn how their differences change their reactivity.
A new mid-infrared imaging technology can be used to grade cancer tumours, eradicating human subjectivity and ensuring patients get the right treatment.
New business unit dedicated to hyperspectral imaging solutions.
Researchers from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, have developed a new camera technology that could be used to produce extremely compact multispectral cameras.
The final step in pharmaceutical production is often tableting. Near infrared chemical imaging can be used to monitor inconsistencies in the powder that will become the tablet, which have been introduced by mechanical processes in the tableting equipment and can lead to out of specification tablets.
Bruker has acquired IRM2, a developer of high-speed infrared (IR) imaging microscopes based on quantum cascade laser (QCL) technology.
WITec has released TrueMatch, a software component for accessing and creating Raman spectral databases. It can search existing libraries of Raman spectra to identify sample components and also allows users to create their own catalog of acquired spectra to assist in their research.
THz spectroscopy and imaging offer improved imaging of breast cancer tumours.
Researchers have used 3D printing to make the holder for the optics used to create an inexpensive and small hyperspectral imager.
A coherent, nanoscale beam of X-rays from a synchrotron source have been used to map chemical reactions happening inside lithium-ion batteries in three dimensions at the nanoscale.
Researchers are using hyperspectral sensors to detect fluctuations in photosynthesis over the growing season measured with sun-induced fluorescence.
Combining metasurface lenses with MEMS technology could add high-speed scanning and enhance focusing capability of optical systems.
Snapshot imager in the vis/NIR region.
Imec’s Snapscan hyperspectral imaging camera uses an ultrasonic speed piezo motor stage and innovative software to acquire high-resolution, hyperspectral images in <200 ms.
In response to demand for hyperspectral imaging in the SWIR (1000–1700 nm), Imec has developed its first SWIR hyperspectral imaging camera.
NIR hyperspectral imaging can be used to control the addition of seed treatment products to monitor dosage levels and coverage.
Researchers at the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI have shown the importance of using multiple excitation wavelengths when studying complex oxides with Raman spectroscopy.
Tony Davies continues his quest to find out what you all need to work more efficiently. You will remember that in the last issue, Tony introduced his survey to discover what developments were needed in spectroscopy by readers. Some of the initial responses are explored, and Tony finds that he has opened a “can of worms”.
