Whilst serial numbers erased from metal can be recovered, it has proved impossible to do so for polymers. Now, Raman spectral imaging offers a way.
Princeton Instruments’ new SpectraPro® HRS-500 high-resolution imaging spectrograph uses exclusive ResXtreme™ spectral deconvolution technology.
Different spectroscopic techniques have been combined to provide additional and complementary information for decades. Increasingly, this is being expanded beyond just two techniques and may include spatial/imaging information as well. All of which bring their own challenges. In “Multimodal imaging of cells and tissues: all photons are welcome”, David Perez-Guaita, Kamila Kochana Anja Rüther, Phillip Heraud, Guillermo Quintas and Bayden Wood report an example of these new approaches. They look at the use of infrared, Raman and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopies to obtain combined imaging data of whole algal cells and discuss how to overcome the challenges.
The Horiba CLUE Series offer a scalable platform for imaging and spectroscopic analysis of nano-objects with SEM and dual SEM/FIB (Focused Ion Beam) microscopes.
The Thermo Scientific Nexsa surface analysis system integrates XPS with additional techniques for correlative analysis in materials research.
We are sad to report the passing of Dietmar Schoeffel.
Call for Nominations for the Norman Sheppard Award made by the Infrared and Raman Discussion Group.
Researchers from Umeå University in Sweden have described a new method based on molecular spectroscopy to study biochemical changes that occur in the pancreas during the development of diabetes.
Horiba Scientific has introduced a new line of SynapsePlus CCDs for high speed and low light applications.
B&W Tek has released updates to their BWSpec software, expanding the software supporting B&W Tek spectrometers, systems and accessories beyond spectral acquisition to a control and spectral analysis platform.
