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.
Timegate Instruments, manufacturer of time-gated Raman spectroscopy instruments, has raised funding of 2.6 M€ for product and business development.
At the IRDG Christmas Meeting held at University College London, the 2018 Norman Sheppard Award of the UK’s IRDG was presented to John Chalmers.
The winner of this award from the UK’s Infrared and Raman Discussion Group is John Chalmers, who was Article Editor for Spectroscopy Europe for many years.
Tornado’s Raman spectroscopy system has won in the category, “Excellence in Pharma: Analysis, Testing, and Quality Control”.
Research has shown that Raman spectroscopy predicted glucose values as accurately as a finger prick test.
Machine learning techniques using a combination of the layer clustering and decision tree methods aids prediction of spectra.
PhD students worldwide who have defended their thesis in the last two years are invited to apply for this award.
