Ultraviolet spectropolarimetry has produced some unexpected results from analysis of solar radiation, showing important information on aspects of the Sun’s magnetic field.

A Japanese research group has developed new techniques to perform analysis and imaging of chemical elements by taking images of a target material using an ordinary, visible-light digital camera with a slight modification, and obtaining X-ray spectra from processed images.

Spectroscopy imaging on the nanoscale is being helped by a new fibre nanoimprinting process.

A group of scientists from EAWAG, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, have developed a portable mass spectrometer allowing on-site measurements, and a spin-off has been created to commercialise the new system.

A study by the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country is using a portable device based on Raman spectroscopy to monitor the ripeness of tomato fruits.

Analytik has been appointed as exclusive distributors for Nanophoton, Japanese manufacturers of benchtop Raman imaging systems for both industrial and research laboratories.

Enhancements of photoacoustic spectroscopy enable analysis of single melanoma cells and improved detection of melanoma.

A new optical spectroscopy technique developed by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Lab promises to improve accuracy and lower costs of real-time assessment of kidney function.

Stimulated Raman projection microscopy and tomography using a special type of laser beam to penetrate deep into tissue might lead to technologies that eliminate the need to draw blood for analyses including drug testing and early detection of diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

A research team at Osaka University has developed an approach to increase the resolution of multichannel spectrometers.
