Researchers from the Basque nanoscience research center, CIC nanoGUNE, and Neaspec GmbH (Germany) have developed an instrument that allows for recording infrared spectra with a thermal source at a resolution that is 100 times better than in conventional infrared spectroscopy. In future, the technique could be applied for analysing the local chemical composition and structure of nanoscale materials in polymer composites, semiconductor devices, minerals or biological tissue.
A joint cooperation between three research groups at nanoGUNE (Donostia, San Sebastian, Spain) reports an innovative method to focus infrared light with tapered transmission lines to nanometre-size dimensions. This device could trigger the development of novel chemical and biological sensing tools, including ultra-small infrared spectrometers and lab-on-a-chip integrated biosensors.
The Coblentz Society presents the ABB-sponsored Bomem–Michelson Award, which is dedicated to the memory of Professor A E. Michelson, developer of the Michelson Interferometer. ABB sponsors the award to honour a scientist who has advanced the technique(s) of vibrational, molecular, Raman or electronic spectroscopy. The recipient of the 2011 Bomem-Michelson Award is Dr Isao Noda of the Proctor and Gamble Company, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Howard Mark was awarded the BS degree in chemistry from the City College of New York in 1963, and earned his MA degree in chemistry from the City University of New York in 1966. He was awarded the Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from New York University in 1972. He remained at NYU as a research fellow, performing research in surface chemistry and in applications of the then-new field of FT-IR spectroscopy.
Chemists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Technische Universität München (TUM) in Germany have introduced an improvement on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements for identifying chemical compounds.
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) announce Carol V. Robinson, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, UK, as the winner of the 2011 FEBS/EMBO Women in Science Award. Professor Robinson has been recognised for her pioneering work in the development of mass spectrometry as a tool used for investigating the structure and dynamics of protein complexes.
Sigma-Aldrich has acquired the assets of Resource Technology Corporation (RTC) of Laramie, Wyoming, USA, manufacturer of analytical standards and certified reference materials. The acquisition of RTC's business complements Sigma-Aldrich's recently completed acquisition of Cerilliant.
Agilent Technologies Inc. is to buy specific assets of A2 Technologies. These include substantially all of A2 Technologies' intellectual property, technology, employees and its spectroscopy product portfolio. Subject to customary closing conditions, the transaction is expected to be final in mid-February. Financial details were not disclosed.
Metabolic profiling of tissue samples could transform the way surgeons make decisions in the operating theatre, say researchers at a new laboratory. Scientists at Imperial College London, in partnership with clinicians at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, have installed a high resolution solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer in St Mary’s Hospital. Researchers will use the machine to analyse intact tissue samples from patients taking part in studies, to investigate whether it can ultimately give surgeons detailed diagnostic information while their patients are under the knife.
