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.
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.
Contains three separate applications for navigating and acquiring Raman images. NavMap is a video feature that shows the whole sample and the zoomed sample’s image in the region of interest simultaneously. NavSharp enables sharp and rapid navigation on a sample image with any topography, keeping the field of view constantly focussed on the sample surface. View Sharp constructs an image in...
New version of this infrared microscope based on quantum cascade lasers. It can produce twice the data in 1/10 of the time with improved signal-to-noise levels. The footprint is also smaller and the stage travel can accommodate up to three slides. A larger sample compartment makes the Spero-QT more compatible with microfluidic devices and accessories.
Princeton Instruments’ new SpectraPro HRS-300 high-resolution imaging spectrograph includes spectral deconvolution technology.
Five spectral band sensor suitable for use on drones.
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.
The WADI project is using hyperspectral, multispectral and thermographic infrared imaging to detect soil moisture and those leaks from water mains in rural areas.
Quantum mechanics dictates how particles and forces interact, and thus how atoms and molecules work, for example, what happens when a molecule goes from a higher-energy state to a lower-energy one. But beyond the simplest molecules, the details become very complex. Now, a Pixel-Imaging Mass Spectrometry camera and a femtosecond vacuum ultraviolet light source are showing how does quantum...

Miniaturised spectral sensing system on a chip
We all know how spectroscopy and other analytical technologies have played important roles in detecting fraud and in authentication. Paper collages, or photomontages, are part of the art market that is seeing much interest amongst collectors. It is difficult to detect forgeries just through expertise. The use of NIR imaging offers a number of ways to identify forgeries or authenticate the...
