The IRDG’s two student travel awards are now open for applications: the Chalmers & Dent Student Travel Award and the Francis Dunstan Travel Awards.
New method offers high-throughput chemical imaging hundreds of times faster than traditional approach.
TOPTICA Photonics AG has entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire the majority of the shares of French fibre laser technology company Azurlight Systems SAS.
Between 5 THz and 12 THz, stable, continuously tuneable, energetic fs pulses are challenging to come by but diamonds can be used to fill the gap.
A hyperspectral camera has been mounted on a standard OR-approved surgical microscope for in vivo detection of low-grade gliomas.
Work by a group of UConn researchers represents an effort to overcome communication challenges and provide a new framework in the emerging field of land change science.
The πNIRS technique could revolutionise medical diagnostics, including monitoring of strokes and Alzheimer’s disease.
A new method by applying Bayesian estimation to X-ray fluorescence analysis can dramatically reduce the analysis time.
Hiden Analytical has gained the ISO 14001:2015 environmental accreditation.
The UK’s national synchrotron facility, Diamond Light Source, was used by a large, international collaboration to study grains collected from a near-Earth asteroid, using XANES, to further our understanding of the evolution of our solar system.
Methods for sensitive local surface evaluation and rapid surface property mapping of Si are still lacking and urgently needed, and now may be solved by THz spectroscopy.
A consortium led by the University of Warwick has been awarded £17 M to procure the UK’s most powerful NMR instrument at 1.2 GHz.
A team led by P.C. Ku and Qing Qu has developed a miniature, paper-thin spectrometer measuring 0.16 mm2 that can also withstand harsh environments.
NTU Singapore has launched the S$160 million Institute for Digital Molecular Analytics and Science, which aims to advance the science behind analysing biomolecules through the use of information technology and data science.
Researchers have developed a sample processing workflow using mass spectrometry and a modified Compound Activity Mapping platform.
A team from Carnegie Mellon University have developed methods using NIR and diffuse correlation spectroscopies to monitor intracranial pressure non-invasively.
A new light source generates ultrashort infrared pulses at wavelengths around 12 µm with previously unattained peak intensity and stability. First experiments in vibrational spectroscopy on water demonstrate the high potential of the system for applications.
Native mass spectrometry is shown to be able to interrogate the pharmacology of the beta-1 adrenergic receptor, a G protein-coupled receptor, and has discovered the endogenous zinc ion as a positive allosteric modulator in well-studied receptor.
Physicists at the University of Texas at Arlington have developed a new technique that can measure the properties of the top-most atomic layer of materials without including information from the underlying layers.
IR s-SNOM has shown that the layer between the wood and varnish of two Stradivarius violins contained protein-based compounds, congregating in nano-sized patches.
