It has now been discovered that care should be taken using Raman spectroscopy to analyse certain chiral molecules. A study shows that interference with circularly polarised light can falsify results.

24 Aug 2021

Researchers have developed a rapid method, based on IR spectra of blood plasma, for differentiating COVID-19-positive patients expected to show severe symptoms from those likely to experience only mild symptoms.

20 Aug 2021

An international research team has used laser ablation ICP-MS to retrace the lifetime journey of an Arctic woolly mammoth, which covered enough of the Alaska landscape during its 28 years to almost circle the Earth twice.

16 Aug 2021

By combining mass spectrometry with laser spectroscopy and simulation techniques, researchers have revealed key differences in the fragmentation of dipeptide biomolecules with different chiral structures.

16 Aug 2021

A team of researchers from Korea has developed a metamaterial that improves the sensitivity of infrared absorption spectroscopy more than 100 times. It can be used in the creation of ultra-sensitive infrared sensors, is very affordable and easy to make.

16 Aug 2021

Raman microscopy has been used to reconstruct technical process parameters and the origin of the raw materials of Egyptian blue revealing trace compounds that inform us about its history.

9 Aug 2021

Shimadzu has appointed Jürgen Semmler as the new Managing Director of its European organisation. He previously headed Shimadzu Deutschland since its foundation in 2006.

5 Aug 2021

Nominations are invited for the 2021 recipient of the Herman Wold gold medal, which will be awarded to an individual who has contributed significantly to the development and proliferation of Chemometrics.

UK university spectroscopic ellipsometers provide a combined spectral range of 0.19–40 µm.

2 Aug 2021

Using portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy, researchers have discovered that a glass panel at Canterbury Cathedral, UK, contained within a series of windows depicting the Ancestors of Christ, was much older than originally thought, with glass dating back to 1130–1160.

2 Aug 2021

A blood test has been developed, based on ATR-FT-IR spectroscopy, to predict which people infected with COVID-19 are most likely to experience serious symptoms, which could help health care workers prioritise patients for hospitalisation and intensive care.

2 Aug 2021

New research at Griffith University has streamlined the process of identifying the structure and molecular weight of compounds by using a single NMR method.

30 Jul 2021

PicoQuant was founded in 1996 by four young scientists and engineers who set themselves the goal to develop optical instrumentation designed by scientists for scientists.

26 Jul 2021

The new Raman spectroscopy method is a powerful tool for real-time, uninterrupted monitoring of solid-state milling reactions.
