An experimental fingerprint detection approach can tell whether an individual has actually consumed cocaine or simply handled it based on the presence of a metabolite.
Researchers working at the SOLEIL synchrotron facility have observed hydrogen in its metal phase for the first time.
Mass spectrometry imaging is offering a first step in determining the age of fingerprints from the degradation of triacylglycerols.
Metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity are ever more common globally. In addition to genetic disposition, lifestyle contributes strongly to their prevalence. Precise monitoring methods are needed in order to, for example, evaluate how a change in diet or exercise affects disease and its metabolic characteristics.
Chirped-pulse Fourier transform millimetre-wave spectroscopy has been used to detect the extremely short-lived transition state that occurs at the initiation of chemical reactions.
There has been no “universal” straightforward technique that provides a full characterisation of microplastics. A new ICP-MS method looks like providing a solution.
The state of thrombocytes in the blood of patients with cardiovascular diseases can be quickly evaluated using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS).
Many spectroscopic techniques have been used in attempts to develop a practical non-invasive glucose monitor. Will Raman spectroscopy be the answer?
Headwall BVBA, Belgium and geo-konzept of Germany have announced the formation of a Centre for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE).
Quantitative phase microscopy and Raman spectroscopy provide a label-free way to extract biomarkers based on cellular morphology and intracellular content.
A state-of-the-art fingerprint detection technology can identify traces of heroin on human skin, even after someone has washed their hands, and can discriminate between an individual who has used the drug or shaken hands with someone who has handled it.
FT-IR spectrometer being used on-board all-women sailing voyages investigating ocean plastic pollution causes and solutions.
A prototype of a greatly improved magneto-optic effect measurement device using dual-comb spectroscopy.
An ultra-fine needle with an integrated chip combines an ultra-sensitive 300-µm nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) coil with a complete NMR transceiver and can be used to probe brain physiology.
Using mass spectrometry, scientists at the University of Southampton have shown how a specific type of symbiotic algae, which lives in coral tissue, is able to adapt and survive the hotter seawater temperatures caused by global warming.
Physicists from the University of Bayreuth and the University of Göttingen have discovered a new method for adjusting the extremely short time intervals between laser flashes with exceptional speed and precision.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a chip-based, infrared spectrometer based on waveguides rather than an interferometer.
Researchers from University of Tsukuba develop a new method that reveals the unique fluorescence signatures of individual cells in mixtures of bacteria, fungi and yeast.
Using ultrashort pulsed laser technology, infrared and Raman spectroscopy can be performed simultaneously.
NIR spectroscopy has been used to detect the presence of cholesterol in the arteries of mummified people who lived thousands of years ago.
