NMR-ESR-synuclein-sThe protein α-synuclein plays an important role in Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Although a considerable amount is known about the structure of the protein within the Parkinson’s-typical amyloid deposits, nothing was known about its original state in the healthy cell up to now. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy have helped to visualise the protein in healthy cells.

NQR detector for tainted medicines and impure food supplements

Fake or low-quality medicines and food supplements are a continuing global problem in developing nations, and indeed the developed world is not immune. A low-cost, portable prototype using nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy can detect tainted medicines and food supplements.

Microresonators produce broad spectrum frequency combs with applications in spectroscopy

micro_resonator-sA chip-based device can generate a laser signal with frequencies spaced in a comb-like fashion. In general, light and water waves alike stretch out and dissipate as they move further and further away from their source. However, there is a type of wave that maintains its shape as it propagates: solitons.
