  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Ultrafast Spectroscopy Reveals New Uses For Flawed Gems

    Ultrafast laser pulses have provided the first detailed observation of how energy travels through flawed diamonds.

  9. Innovation In Spectroscopy Could Improve Greenhouse Gas Detection

    Detecting greenhouse gases in the atmosphere could soon become far easier with the help of an innovative technique* developed by a team at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where scientists have overcome an issue preventing the effective use of lasers to rapidly scan samples.

  10. Low Temperature Fluorescence Spectroscopy

    Liquid nitrogen and liquid helium cryostats are available as part of the range of temperature-controlled accessories for the FLS980 and FLS920 series of photoluminescence spectrometers from Edinburgh Photonics.
