Shimadzu has released the first EDX-FT-IR contaminant finder/material inspector, which integrates and analyses data acquired from both an ED XRF spectrometer and a FT-IR spectrophotometer.
On 15 March Ghent University officially launches a prestigious research project on precision agriculture, led by Abdul Mouazen.
Keit has developed the rugged IRmadillo™ FTIR spectrometer. Vibration-tolerant, it is ideally suited to manufacturing environments in the chemical, pharmaceutical, bio-fuels, oil & gas and food & beverage industries for real-time reaction monitoring of liquids & slurries. Keit expands the use of FTIR for PAT.
Analytik have been appointed as exclusive distributors for the NeoSpectra range of low-cost, miniaturised, OEM FT-NIR spectral sensors.
Traceable, polystyrene film references for mid-IR and NIR from Starna
Researchers have reported a new development of hyperspectral infrared nanoimaging. It is based on Fourier transform infrared nanospectroscopy (nano-FT-IR) and enables highly sensitive spectroscopic imaging of chemical composition with nanoscale spatial resolution.
Laser Components has introduced 1064 nm single-mode laser diodes
Energetiq Technology introduces the fifth generation LDLS, the EQ-77
Spectral Engines add to their NM Sensor Module series.
We all know how spectroscopy and other analytical technologies have played important roles in detecting fraud and in authentication. Paper collages, or photomontages, are part of the art market that is seeing much interest amongst collectors. It is difficult to detect forgeries just through expertise. The use of NIR imaging offers a number of ways to identify forgeries or authenticate the...
Researcher from the Graphene Flagship have developed a novel graphene-based infrared (IR) detector demonstrating record high sensitivity for thermal detection. Graphene’s unique attributes pave the way for high-performance IR imaging and spectroscopy.
The International Council for Near Infrared Spectroscopy (ICNIRS) are pleased to invite nominations for the 2017 Tomas Hirschfeld Award.
This article demonstrates the capability of the near-field method to probe polymer microspheres within a protein matrix, and we present the first IRSR photothermal near-field Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrum from within an individual biological cell, which establishes the feasibility of hyperspectral mapping at sub-micrometre resolution in a practical timescale.
Unity Scientific has introduced the M18 moisture analyser.
Avantes has introduced the AvaSpec-NIR 2.5-HSC, which has greater sensitivity, less weight and a smaller size.
Once again developments in portable instruments lead to greater ease of use and the ability to measure far more samples. They describe the application of FT-IR, NIR and XRF spectroscopies to the development of the National Soils Inventory of Scotland, and their work in developing the use of handheld instruments, particularly FT-IR spectrometers.
Diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging (DOSI) using near infrared radiation can determine fat metabolism and has the potential to help determine if a diet and exercise regime is working.
Using fNIRS to track the brain activity of both participants, when people are asked to cooperate with a partner, found that males and females had different patterns of shared brain activity.
Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced the P13243 detector, using an InAsSb sensor as an eco-friendly alternative to lead salt.
The Thermo Scientific Delta Ray is a portable isotope ratio infrared spectrometer for on-site isotopic analysis.
Unity Scientific has introduced the SpectraStar XT series of NIR spectrometers
New broad-band tuneable infrared laser is single-chip, solid-state and offers high-power rapid tuning.
Benchtop mid-IR and NIR as well as portable NIR instruments are used for quick and non-invasive quality control of this traditional Chinese medicine. Adulterations could be detected, as well as the raw herbs and different sources of the Si-Wu-Tang. The success of the mobile NIR instrument is particularly interesting due to the growing interest in such technology for its ease-of-use and cost....
