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.
Fluorescence spectroscopy has been used to study the ancient pigment, Egyptian blue.
Entries for the IRDG Chalmers and Dent Student Travel Award for a PhD to present their research at the SciX meeting.
The Hellma Group has announced the conclusion of an agreement regarding the acquisition of the assets of Axiom Analytical Inc.
Acal BFi have signed a Pan-European distribution agreement with Quantum Light.
Edinburgh Instruments have installated one of their top end fluorescence spectroscopy systems at the brand new Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology (VISTEC) in Thailand. VISTEC is funded by PPT, a petroleum company, with the aim of producing high impact research publications in the science and technology field. The University has invested heavily in state of the art scientific facilities and recruited some of the best professors and researchers, including NRCT Research Award and Outstanding Scientist Award winners.
The FLS980 Fluorescence Spectrometer and the LP980 Transient Absorption Spectrometer will be used to investigate and improve the efficiency and photochemical characteristics of organic solar cell technology. The group researchers are aiming to reduce global consumption and dependence on fossil fuels through improving the overall light-collection efficiency and simplify the manufacture of this type of organic solar cell.
The protein α-synuclein plays an important role in Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Although a considerable amount is known about the structure of the protein within the Parkinson’s-typical amyloid deposits, nothing was known about its original state in the healthy cell up to now. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy have helped to visualise the protein in healthy cells.
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.
We are all probably aware of the detection of metabolites in wastewater to indicate the levels of illegal drug usage in a locality, but researchers at the University of Valencia have extended this to monitor alcohol consumption in near real time.
Fake or low-quality medicines and food supplements are a continuing global problem in developing nations, and indeed the developed world is not immune. A low-cost, portable prototype using nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy can detect tainted medicines and food supplements.
