MOBILion’s ion mobility separations technology—Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation (SLIM)—is to be integrated with Agilent’s Q-TOF mass spectrometry platform.
Scientists at Münster University use dual-beam lasers to increase the resolution of MALDI MS imaging.
Scientists have designed an ultra-miniaturised device that could perform spectral imaging on single cells without the need for a microscope or perform spectroscopic analysis from a smartphone.
Tip-enhanced “resonance” Raman scattering can be used to investigate a specific chemical structure at nanoscale and even at the single-molecule level, and also provides a new approach for the atomic-scale optical characterisation of local electronic states.
Shimadzu has opened a branch office in Sweden, which will market Shimadzu’s full range of analytical instrumentation solutions.
At the EUROISMAR 2019 meeting, Bruker and its scientific collaborators are presenting 1.2 GHz high-resolution NMR data that has been acquired using a new 1.2 GHz 3 mm triple-inverse TCI CryoProbe.
XRF mapping, infrared and hyperspectral imaging reveal early designs for Leonardo da Vinci’s The Virgin of the Rocks.
Specac opens new headquarters including manufacturing, office and demonstration facilities.
Heidelberg University physicists develop new method based on UV photoelectron spectroscopy to show the energetic landscape within solar cells made from organic materials.
Attosecond transient absorption spectroscopy has uncovered the interplay between light absorption and electronic screening which could lead to the development of future optoelectronic devices, energy-efficient electronics, magnetic memory devices, spintronics and new types of solar cells.
The group of Jérôme Faist in the Institute for Quantum Electronics produced a terahertz quantum cascade laser operating without cryogenic cooling.
The technique can identify cancerous thyroid cells with 97 % accuracy, and also showed that subtypes could be identified by their spectral differences.
By being resident on-site at a hydrothermal vent for 12 months, InVADER will capture transient events and provide unprecedented spatial and temporal access to a deep ocean hydrothermal system.
New method developed at the University of Warwick can analyse highly complex mixtures through maintaining almost constant resolving power across the full mass range analysed.
Nominations for the 2019 Norman Sheppard Award are invited.
The new matrix-assisted ionisation in vacuum (MAIV) technique has been used to generate mass spectrometry images for the first time. The technique’s ability to generate multiply charged ions from peptides and proteins facilitates their identification by tandem mass spectrometry.
We are sad to announce that Karl Norris passed away peacefully on 17 July 2019 at the age of 98.
A fast, tuneable quantum cascade laser can cover the fingerprint region in 1 ms.
The secret of how seals are able to spend 90 % of their lives at sea holding their breath, without starving their brains of oxygen, has been revealed using NIR spectroscopy.
Visible spectroscopy has identified deposits of NaCl on Jupiter’s moon Europa.
