High-resolution laser ionisation of radioactive atoms in a supersonic gas jet has been used to probe the properties of heavy elements.

Researchers have reported a new development of hyperspectral infrared nanoimaging. It is based on Fourier transform infrared nanospectroscopy (nano-FT-IR) and enables highly sensitive spectroscopic imaging of chemical composition with nanoscale spatial resolution.

By measuring the height profile of the sample prior to analysis, mass spectrometry imaging can now visualise the distribution of chemical substances on samples with non-flat surfaces.

Nanostructure-based lenses provide focussing and dispersion, and allow smaller devices with increased functionality.

A new approach has been shown to decrease the emission linewidth from a molecule; one of the key aims in precision spectroscopy.
