  1. Forbidden Quantum Leaps Possible With High-Res Spectroscopy

    A new twist on an old tool lets scientists use light to study and control matter with 1,000 times better resolution and precision than previously possible.

  2. Antennas Enable Nanoscale Terahertz Spectroscopy

    Nanoantenna-enhanced terahertz spectroscopy (NETS) involves chains of dipole nanoantennas spaced about 20 nm apart.

  3. Joint International Research Project Leads To A Breakthrough In Terahertz Spectroscopy

    Although terahertz spectroscopy has great potential, especially for environmental monitoring and security screening applications, it previously could not be used effectively to study nanocrystals or molecules at extremely low concentrations.

  4. Graphene Offers X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy A Window Of Opportunity

    X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is one of the most sensitive and informative surface analysis techniques available. However, XPS requires a high vacuum to operate, which makes analyzing materials in liquid and gaseous environments difficult.

  5. Minuscule Chips For NMR Spectroscopy Promise Portability, Parallelization

    A team of engineers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), Schlumberger-Doll Research Center in Cambridge, Mass., and the University of Texas, Austin, have created a truly portable device for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.

  6. Andor Launches New Ultrasensitive OEM Camera For Superior Spectroscopy In The NIR

    Andor Technology Ltd., an Oxford Instruments company and world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, today announced the launch of its most sensitive, OEM-dedicated NIR spectroscopy detector to date.

  7. Gooch & Housego Lead MINERVA (MId- To NEaR Infrared Spectroscopy For improVed Medical diAgnostics) Project Wins Photonics Innovation Village Award At Photonics Europe

    The Gooch & Housego lead MINERVA (MId- to NEaR infrared spectroscopy for improVed medical diAgnostics) project has won a 1500€ prize at SPIE’s recent Photonics Europe conference in Brussels.

  8. Ultra-Fast Laser Spectroscopy Lights Way To Understanding New Materials

    Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory are revealing the mysteries of new materials using ultra-fast laser spectroscopy, similar to high-speed photography where many quick images reveal subtle movements and changes inside the materials.

  9. Subsurface Structures Probed Via Spectroscopy

    The hidden junctures where different layers of materials meet could become less mysterious under a new spectroscopy technique developed using the Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

  10. 30-Tesla Pulsed Magnet Has Internal Optical Access For Spectroscopy

    A tabletop magnetic-pulse generator developed at Rice University not only does better than conventional room-sized magnets; it also has direct optical access to its core which is the best location to carry on spectroscopic experiments.
