Merck has acquired Resolution Spectra Systems, a company producing Raman spectroscopy instrumentation for bioprocess analytical monitoring.
Electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy have shown the mechanism by which microorganisms are able to extract water from the rocks they colonise.
A sandwich of molybdenum, sulfur and selenium turns out to be well suited as a SERS substrate.
Congratulations to Yuki Ozaki on the announcement of his latest award.
Every year, the WITec Paper Award competition recognises three exceptional peer-reviewed publications that feature results acquired with a WITec microscope.The 2020 Paper Awards go to researchers from Japan, Poland and Austria.
Applications are invited for these prestigious awards administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust.
A number of awards are presented at each annual Pittsburgh Conference honouring scientists who have made outstanding contributions to analytical chemistry and applied spectroscopy. We report here those directly involved in spectroscopy.
A new research project in partnership between academia, companies and the Netherlands Forensic Institute to develop ways to chain analytical techniques together to gain complementary information.
Using cryogenic, ultrahigh-vacuum TERS and fine-tuning the highly localised plasmon field at the sharp tip apex has reduced the spatial resolution to 1.5 Å
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?
Quantitative phase microscopy and Raman spectroscopy provide a label-free way to extract biomarkers based on cellular morphology and intracellular content.
Using ultrashort pulsed laser technology, infrared and Raman spectroscopy can be performed simultaneously.
Tip-enhanced “resonance” Raman scattering can be used to investigate a specific chemical structure at nanoscale and even at the single-molecule level, and also provides a new approach for the atomic-scale optical characterisation of local electronic states.
Shimadzu has opened a branch office in Sweden, which will market Shimadzu’s full range of analytical instrumentation solutions.
The technique can identify cancerous thyroid cells with 97 % accuracy, and also showed that subtypes could be identified by their spectral differences.
By being resident on-site at a hydrothermal vent for 12 months, InVADER will capture transient events and provide unprecedented spatial and temporal access to a deep ocean hydrothermal system.
Nominations for the 2019 Norman Sheppard Award are invited.
The ABS Trust is seeking applications for the Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award and the new Edward Steers bursary, both open to early career scientists.
imec have developed an on-chip solution for Raman spectroscopy that could be used to manufacture high-performance, handheld Raman devices; perhaps even in smartphones.
