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.
Princeton Instruments has added the ProEM-HS:1024BX3 to its line of high-speed EMCCD cameras.
Inno-Spec are introducing the OrangeEye Lab, a laboratory spectral imaging camera for the visible and very near infrared regions.
A microscope being developed at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory will allow scientists studying biological and synthetic materials to simultaneously observe chemical and physical properties on and beneath the surface.
Many details of the wall and ceiling frescos in the cloister of Brandenburg Cathedral have faded: Plaster on which horses once “galloped” appears more or less bare. Hyperspectral imaging reveals images that remain hidden to the human eye, however, and is thus a big help for art historians.
