UV-DOAS Spectroscopy For Atmospheric Monitoring
Ultraviolet Doppler Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (UV-DOAS) is a long distance measurement technique used for detecting chemicals in the atmosphere. This technology is important in our modern world where ...
Superconductor Spectroscopy Devices and Single Photon Detectors
Introduction to Superconductors (Traditional) Superconductivity was first discovered in 1911 by Heike Kamerlingh Onnes when he found Mercury to have an abrupt drop in electrical resistance at a temperature ...
A Hybrid Near-IR Spectroscopy Technique for Stroke Diagnosis
Modern Stroke Diagnosis As discussed in a recent article, strokes are one of the most common causes of death in the world. One study found that about 90% of all strokes occur due to cerebral ischemia while ...
FTIR: Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy Principles and Applications
Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (or FTIR, for short) is a method of exploring the physical properties of solids, liquids, and gases. More specifically, it allows the study of the absorptive and ...
Portable Spectroscopy and How it is Changing Agriculture
Precision agriculture is the practice of micromanaging crops to maximize yield, with the help of sensors, mapping techniques and laboratory studies like spectroscopy. This type of “smart” farming is ...
Optical Frequency Combs for Molecular Fingerprinting
  Researchers at the University of Colorado, Boulder are experimenting with laser sources called optical frequency combs to find a new way of studying molecular structures. Frequency combs get their ...
Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for Early Lymphoma Diagnosis
A collaborative research team from Harbin Medical University and Harbin Institute of Technology present a promising alternative to detect lymphoma in blood samples in their recently published paper. The ...
Diffraction Gratings: An Essential Tool in Modern Spectrometry Techniques
Introduction to Diffraction Gratings Diffraction gratings are optical components that diffract and separate light into several beams at different angles by wavelength. Their working principle is hinged ...
