Outdoor bronze statues suffer from corrosion by the urban atmosphere. Short wavelength infrared hyperspectral imaging can determine the spatial distribution of corrosion products on the statue, none of which can be recognised by visual observation.
New database enables the rapid screening and identification of drugs by Direct Analysis in Real Time (DART®) mass spectrometry.
Keynote speakers have been announced for HSI 2018, the 7th international conference on Hyperspectral Imaging & Applications, co-located with Photonex Europe taking place on 10 and 11 October at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK.
Hyperspectral imaging can detect weak from strong hardened concrete and normally fired bricks.
Machine learning techniques using a combination of the layer clustering and decision tree methods aids prediction of spectra.
PhD students worldwide who have defended their thesis in the last two years are invited to apply for this award.
Shimadzu’s IRSpirit and AIM-9000 have been chosen from over 6300 items from 59 countries as winners of Red Dot Awards.
The use of a single-molecule transistor enables terahertz spectroscopy to overcome the diffraction limit.
New hyperspectral camera system can capture 3D images, time and spectral information.
In the year of its 50th anniversary in Europe, Shimadzu has been awarded the NRW.INVEST Award 2018 for outstanding investments and commitment to the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
Waters and Restek have entered into a co-marketing agreement to give food safety laboratories access to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) instrumentation and consumables for pesticide residue GC-MS analyses.
A rare mineral that holds potential as a new material for industrial and medical applications has been discovered on alpine plants by Raman microscopy.
Using spectroscopic techniques including Raman and XANES, 3.4 billion year old microfossils from Western Australia’s Strelley Pool formation have been shown to be chemically similar to modern bacteria. This all but confirms the biological origins of the fossils and ranks them among the world’s oldest.
As well as being inedible, LC-MS analysis has shown that 3000+ year-old cheese was contaminated with the bacterium that causes brucellosis.
THz spectroscopy has answered seemingly simple questions about the hydration shell of charged particles which remained unanswered for a long time.
Isotope ratio MS has shown that whale sharks, the world’s largest fish, roam less than previously thought. This greater understanding of their habits is important for their conservation.
Multispectral imaging technology which could enable more targeted observation of environmental conditions on Earth is being developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.
Researchers from Kanazawa University have reported the application of a portable and efficient method for the on-site analysis of wastewaters for the quantitative analysis of their gold, platinum and palladium content.
Columbia Engineering system could lead to a spectroscopy lab-on-a-chip for real-time sensing in the microseconds
Waters acquires exclusive rights to desorption electrospray ionisation (DESI) technology for all mass spectrometry applications from Prosolia and PRF.
