Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy: Fundamental Research and Practical Applications
Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) enhances the Raman signal using molecules adsorbed on rough metal surfaces. This interview with 2014 Charles Mann Award winner Richard P. Van Duyne of Northwestern University discusses his group's work with tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, single-molecule SERS, a SERS system for glucose analysis, and SERS as a method for analyzing colorants in artworks.

Understanding Biological Systems at the Quantum Level Using 2D Electronic Spectroscopy
Spectroscopy recently spoke to Greg S. Engel, who is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, and one of the winners of the 2013 FACSS Innovation Awards. Here, Engel discusses his research examining quantum dynamics in biology, chirality in dynamics, and the use of two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy.

Putting a Spectrometer on a Cell Phone
Will your next cell phone include a spectrometer? In this interview, Alexander Scheeline talks about what is involved in creating such a device, and his work toward that end. This interview is part of Spectroscopy's 2014 interview series with the winners of awards that are presented at the SciX conference.


GLP and GMP Approaches to Method Validation — Going the Same Way?
Spectroscopy - April 1, 2014
A review of the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) stimulus paper on the revision process to adopt quality-by-design principles for the development, validation, and operation of analytical procedures used for good manufacturing practice (GMP) analysis — and how it compares to a draft guidances by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for industry on validation of analytical and bioanalytical procedures.
Simultaneous Measurement of Chlorophyll and Water Content in Navel Orange Leaves Based on Hyperspectral Imaging
Spectroscopy - April 1, 2014
Here, hyperspectral imaging was used to simultaneously estimate chlorophyll and water content of Gannan navel orange leaves.
LIBS Basics, Part II: Hardware
Spectroscopy - April 1, 2014
The choices for LIBS hardware are discussed in detail, particularly lasers and spectrometers, and the trade-offs between cost, size, and performance are illustrated.
