UV and Visible Spectroscopy
tecSaaS from tec5 is a modular platform based on UV/vis/NIR spectroscopy for implementing stand-alone sensors with embedded processing for industrial or mobile applications. The on-board processing architecture with modular software/firmware processes the data of UV/vis/NIR spectral sensors in real time and only passes relevant results to the process interface. Complex algorithms such as...
Ocean Optics has introduced a line of accessories for dynamic sampling (averaging signal across the sample). The accessories are a diffuse reflectance (DR) probe, rotating sample cup, multiplexer and flow cell. The DR Probe integrates a light source and collection optics to measure 45° diffuse reflectance. The DynaCup is a rotating device that presents samples to the DR Probe. To save sample...
Hellma Analytics’ new UV/Vis/NIR optical immersion probe has been designed to meet the requirements for 3-A certification (a standard in the USA that defines hygiene criteria for technical equipment). This certification guarantees that all surfaces that come into contact with products are very easy to clean (CIP) and sterilise (SIP) according to 3-A standards. This makes it much easier for...
Inno-Spec are introducing the OrangeEye Lab, a laboratory spectral imaging camera for the visible and very near infrared regions, with a spectral range of 500–950 nm. It is based on a pushbroom imager with an internal scanning unit to acquire complete hyperspectral data cubes. It has integrated broadband LED illumination optimised for the spectral range. The camera is small and light weight...
Researchers in Beijing have obtained new energy readings for cyanoacetylene molecules using ZEKE spectroscopy, with significant implications for understanding the electronic structure of organic molecules.
BBCEAS is a new cavity-based absorption technique that uses broadband sources rather than lasers. This offers potential improvements in signal-to-noise but often lower spectral resolution compared to techniques where the laser wavelength is scanned. The article concentrates on liquid-phase applications, an interesting new area since most cavity-based absorption studies have been performed on...

The analysis of turbid samples is increasingly important, not least due to their widespread occurrence in natural samples. Dmitry Khoptyar, Sören Johansson, Staffan Strömblad and Stefan Andersson-Engels show “Broadband photon time-of-flight spectroscopy as a prospective tool in biomedicine and industrial process and quality control”. The authors describe their recent development of a broadband...
With the threat of climate change, understanding the workings of our atmosphere is of crucial importance. Ozone is the most important trace gas in the stratosphere and troposphere and it is monitored by both satellite-borne and ground-based instruments. Accurate knowledge of ozone absorption cross-sections is vital for this work and described in this article.

Spectroscopy and spectrometry have been around for a long time. In the “modern” era, spectroscopic instruments have been with us in one form or another for over 70 years. This is particularly true for those old “workhorse” techniques, UV-visible and infrared. So by now it might be reasonable to think that we would enjoy a standardisation and calibration environment that would make the...
