  1. Researchers Finally Prove Existence Of Excitonium, A New Form Of Matter
    12/11/2017

    Scientists using a newly developed spectroscopic technique have finally proven the existence of excitonium, a new form of matter first theorized almost half a century ago.

  2. Fastest Attosecond Laser Spectroscopy Sees Electrons In Slow Motion
    10/31/2017

    Researchers at ETH Zurich have generated the world's shortest X-ray laser pulse with a duration of only 43 attoseconds – fast enough to observe electrons in slow motion during chemical reactions.

  3. Terahertz Spectroscopy Now Possible At The Nanoscale
    10/23/2017

    Researchers at Brown University have developed a modified method of laser terahertz emission microscopy (LTEM) to image, for the first time, individual nanostructures of materials being analyzed.

  4. Mid- And Near-IR Spectroscopy For Medical Diagnosis Project Develops New Range Of Diagnostic Tools
    10/18/2017

    G&H announces the FP7 project MINERVA has now been completed. MINERVA (MId- to NEaR infrared spectroscopy for improVed medical diAgnostics) was funded by the European Commission through its Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Co-ordinated by Gooch & Housego, the project brought together thirteen partners from across Europe with the common objective of developing mid-infrared (mid-IR) technology based on supercontinuum sources (SCSs) to improve the early diagnosis of cancer.

  5. Light-Trapping Sensor Improves Spectroscopy By Leaps And Bounds
    8/3/2017

    A new light-trapping sensor fabricated by engineers at the University at Buffalo has been demonstrated to be capable of up to 1,000 times greater resolution than existing spectroscopy devices that detect minute amounts of substances.

  6. New Imaging Technique Fast Enough To Watch Molecular Dynamics Involved In Neurodegenerative Diseases
    7/13/2017

    Researchers have developed a fast and practical molecular-scale imaging technique that could let scientists view never-before-seen dynamics of biological processes involved in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

  7. Xenics at Laser World of Photonics
    6/26/2017

    Xenics, Europe's leading developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared detectors, cameras and customized imaging solutions from the SWIR to the LWIR realm, comes to Laser World of Photonics 2017 with its latest developments.

  8. NASA Readies World's First Spaceborne Sodium LIDAR System
    5/18/2017

    Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center are developing the world's first space-based sodium LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) instrument to study the nature and dynamics of the mesosphere, the poorly understood middle layer of the Earth's atmosphere, which lies 40-100 miles above Earth’s surface and separates the planet from the vacuum of space.

  9. fNIRS-Based Wearable Allows “Locked-In” ALS Pateints To Communicate “Yes” And “No”
    3/13/2017

    Functional near infrared spectroscopic (fNIRS) imaging (pronounced f-nears) has led to a breakthrough in communication with ALS patients who are "Locked-In," meaning they are in advanced stages of the disease where the brain is conscious and functioning, but they are unable to move any muscles, including the eyes.

  10. Fiber Optics May Provide Minimally Invasive Alternative To Traditional Muscle Biopsy
    3/6/2017

    New technology may provide a minimally invasive alternative to traditional muscle biopsies, which are commonly used to diagnose patients showing symptoms of muscular disorders, diseases, or infections.
