Edinburgh Instruments' FLS1000 is a modular photoluminescence spectrometer which can be used for both steady state and time-resolved spectroscopy.
Salmon is one of the most popular edible fish of all. Shops sell fish caught in the wild, but their main produce is salmon from breeding farms, the effluent from which can pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. German and Chilean scientists have used fluorescence measurements, high-resolution mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to answer this question.
Diamond Light Source has welcomed the first users to the hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline (I14), the latest phase III beamline to be opened.

Spectral and lifetime properties of the enhanced upconversion and downconversion mechanism of shell-enhanced lanthanide-doped nanocrystals revealed through luminescence spectroscopy.
The CAL(AI)2DOSCOPE (Cryogenic Absorption/Luminescence Alignment Independent Alternative Intermittent Detection Optical µSCOPE) is a microspectrometer that was constructed with the aim to facilitate the correlated investigation of absorption and fluorescence emission properties of nanovolumic protein samples under modulatable actinic illumination.
Whilst the major components of food are usually non-fluorescent, many minor food components that affect its nutritive, compositional and technological quality are fluorescent. Given its sensitivity, ease of use and non-destructive nature, this makes it useful in many applications around monitoring food processing and in fundamental food research.
Horiba Scientific has added the PTI QuantaMaster 8000 to its line of spectrofluorometers with a signal-to-noise ratio of 30,000 : 1 RMS for water Raman.

Andor Technology has announced the launch of the new, enhanced iKon-M 912 back-illuminated CCD camera, offering high dynamic range and low noise performance. The 512 × 512 CCD array with 24-μm pixels has been optimised for extremely high well depth and maximum photon collection per pixel. The ultrasensitive camera delivers up to 95% QE, 3 e– read noise and a superb 300,000 e–...
Research from Rice University, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Kansas State University in the USA has used super-resolution microscopy and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy to characterize such nanoscale spaces in chromatography media.
Shimadzu has introduced the RF-6000 spectrofluorophotometer. By optimising the internal design, a signal-to-noise ratio of 350 : 1 is achieved, allowing for high-sensitivity analyses of a wide range of samples. As well, the speed of 3D measurements has been increased significantly. Samples in very low concentrations or in minute amounts can be analysed by making use of optional cells designed...
Combining fluorescence spectroscopy and “stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy” enables the imaging of single molecules with unprecedented spectral and spatial resolution, thus leading to the first “true-colour” super-resolution microscope.
The “Application of Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy for identification of uranium minerals in the environment” is described by Eric Faulques, Florian Massuyeau, Nataliya Kalashnyk and Dale Perry. Uranium forms a large number of compounds and complexes, and these are most helpful in the study of uranium, its chemistry and transport in the environment. Raman and photoluminescence...
