Near Infrared (NIR)
The new version of J&M’s software offers improved options for process control.
The NeoSpectra Micro is a chip-sized, self-contained NIR spectral sensor designed to be the basis of a complete system.
NIR spectroscopy has been shown to be a cheap and effective tool that could save lives by helping health authorities target mosquitos infected with Zika virus.
The winner of the 2018 Tomas Hirschfeld Award is Professor Christian Huck.
FOSS’ FoodScan 2 is a new generation near infrared analyser, 50 % faster than the previous model and with new analytical and software capabilities.
SouthNest Technology were showing their nanoFTIR miniature FT-NIR spectrometer. This has a wavelength range of 1000–2600 nm and a resolution of 6 nm. It weighs 220 g and has dimensions of 143 × 49 × 28 mm. It has a SMA 905 fibre optic connection and interfaces with a PC via a USB connection.
Neolitics’ Optical Analyser is an NIR process spectrometer using Texas Instruments’ DLP chip. Individual instruments can be tuned to make them identical. This means that there is no need for calibration transfer and it is possible to keep a spare instrument ready in case of downtime. Each device can be used for reflectance and transmittance and can fit into an existing process port.
Bruker’s new MPA II is the next generation of the MPA Multi Purpose Analyser, an FT-NIR spectrometer for quantitative pharmaceutical QC. The MPA II has a range of sample options in addition to the standard sample compartment: integrating sphere, fibre optic probes and an external transmission unit.
The final step in pharmaceutical production is often tableting. Near infrared chemical imaging can be used to monitor inconsistencies in the powder that will become the tablet, which have been introduced by mechanical processes in the tableting equipment and can lead to out of specification tablets.
JP3 Measurement has the Verax™ SSG and SSL NIR spectroscopy based online oil and gas analysers.
Smart garments using embedded near infrared spectroscopy sensors are being developed at the University of British Columbia.
In response to demand for hyperspectral imaging in the SWIR (1000–1700 nm), Imec has developed its first SWIR hyperspectral imaging camera.
Ibsen Photonics has announced the Freedom C series of compact, high-resolution OEM spectrometers.
NIR hyperspectral imaging can be used to control the addition of seed treatment products to monitor dosage levels and coverage.
The upgraded Ocean FX miniature spectrometer has increased acquisition speed, high-sensitivity CMOS detector performance and integration times down to 10 µs.
Observing the crucial first few femtoseconds of photochemical reactions requires tools typically not available in the femtochemistry toolkit. Such dynamics are now within reach with the instruments provided by attosecond science. In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers from Max Born Institute for Nonlinear...
The newMicroNIR™ tablet probe from Viavi Solutions enables rapid analysis of pharmaceutical tablets and pills, food manufacturing and seed quality.
New transportable FT-NIR spectrometer with three sampling modules for a range of qualitative, quantitative and adulterant screening applications.
PANalytical has appointed Aimil Ltd as the authorised representative for ASD NIR products in India.
Developed to provide direct calibration transfer without the need to standardise instruments or adjusting models. Uses PermAlign optics, that maintains alignment and performance under all conditions. As well as a reflectance sampling area, a transmission chamber that holds a cuvette or vial in included. Optional temperature control is available.
The WADI project is using hyperspectral, multispectral and thermographic infrared imaging to detect soil moisture and those leaks from water mains in rural areas.
The 2017 Tomas Hirschfeld Award has been made to Satoru Tsuchikawa of Nagoya University, Japan.
Given the increase in food-related health problems, the challenge set for the EU Horizon’s Food Scanner prize of €1 million was to develop an affordable and non-invasive mobile solution that enables users to measure and analyse their food intake.
On 15 March Ghent University officially launches a prestigious research project on precision agriculture, led by Abdul Mouazen.
Analytik have been appointed as exclusive distributors for the NeoSpectra range of low-cost, miniaturised, OEM FT-NIR spectral sensors.
