Observing the crucial first few femtoseconds of photochemical reactions requires tools typically not available in the femtochemistry toolkit. Such dynamics are now within reach with the instruments provided by attosecond science. In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers from Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI) characterise one of the fastest internal conversion processes in a molecule studied to date.
Mass spectrometry can provide varied information from fingermarks and is close to use in the UK courts.
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, have confirmed the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
Scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have succeeded in enhancing the sensitivity of NMR measurements in very small spaces using Lenz lenses that focus magnetic flux.
Markes International has announced the opening of a new Chinese subsidiary, Markes Instruments (Shanghai) Co., Ltd (玛珂思仪器（上海）有限公司).
Scientists from the University of Surrey, UK, have developed a rapid and highly sensitive fingerprint test based on paper spray mass spectrometry that can take just seconds to confirm whether someone has used cocaine.
We are sad to report the passing of Dietmar Schoeffel.
Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) have developed miniaturised hyperspectral technology as an add-on for a standard camera that will generate superior quality images and video faster and at a lower cost than currently available commercial devices.
Spectro Analytical Instruments has delivered the 10,000th SPECTROMAXx metal analyser to Geely Automobile, a Chinese automotive and motorcycle manufacturer based in Hangzhou.
