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.
Report on this meeting organised annually by the German microscope manufacturer, WITec, for researchers and specialists from widely ranging fields to share ideas and hear about the latest developments in Raman microscopy.
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.
This article demonstrates the capability of the near-field method to probe polymer microspheres within a protein matrix, and we present the first IRSR photothermal near-field Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrum from within an individual biological cell, which establishes the feasibility of hyperspectral mapping at sub-micrometre resolution in a practical timescale.
Pixelteq’s SpectroCam VIS-SWIR 640 multispectral imaging camera is suitable for imaging in tissue and biological material.
The HySpex Mjolnir-1024 from Norsk Elektro Optik is a hyperspectral camera for UAV applications.
TISCH—Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy in Cultural Heritage: applications in archaeology, architecture and art conservation science
Returning to our cultural heritage theme, Bianca Jackson tells us about “TISCH—Terahertz Imaging and Spectroscopy in Cultural Heritage: applications in archaeology, architecture and art conservation science”. Terahertz spectroscopy and imaging of Paleolithic cave etchings, 14th century paintings in a church and a mid-20th century Italian painting are all described. This helps demonstrate the versatility of the technique as well as its potential in cultural heritage preservation.
Diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging (DOSI) using near infrared radiation can determine fat metabolism and has the potential to help determine if a diet and exercise regime is working.
Remote simultaneous 3D and spectral imaging will provide direct identification of surface rust and corrosion on structures including bridges and pylons.
Andor Technology has introduced the iStar sCMOS platform as an addition to the iStar family
The Hypercore has been designed for UAV airborne applications.
University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, researchers have made a microscopic snapshot of the early renal lipid changes in acute kidney injury, using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation (MALDI) tissue imaging to localise the changes.
This product focus is on Molecular Spectroscopy.
In the Tony Davies Column, Tony looks at “Raman imaging of difficult surfaces”. He looks at a number of different approaches to dealing with uneven samples, as well as reviewing instrumental improvements that have made Raman imaging a viable analytical and diagnostic tool.
A report on the 12th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium held in Ulm, Germany, September 2015, which covered a fascinating range of applications of the technique.
Andor Technology has announced the launch of the new, enhanced iKon-M 912 back-illuminated CCD camera.
Specim have introduced the new range of AisaKESTREL pushbroom hyperspectral sensor systems.
Oriel Instruments has introduced the MS260i series of ¼-m imaging spectrographs.
