Atomic Spectroscopy
Ancient Roman builders designed maritime concrete harbor structures to remain intact in the aggressive seawater environment for very long periods of time.
Moxtek's ULTRA-LITE X-ray source is a very small self contained X-ray source (X-ray tube and high voltage power supply) for use in portable X-ray applications, such as the handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers.
This report introduces an X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis for the detection of ppb levels of hazardous heavy elements in wastewater and river water using "Ultracarry®" high sensitivity micro-droplet filter paper and the "Ultradry™" vacuum dryer.
Single reaction chamber microwave digestion offers significant benefits over traditional microwave digestion for pharmaceutical samples: higher sample throughput, reduced labor and consumables costs, simplified workflow, and superior digestion quality.
Molecular Spectroscopy
Fermentation processes have been used since the Neolithic era and are widely used today in diverse fields such as foods, beverages, and pharmaceuticals.
RISE microscopy is a novel correlative microscopy technique that combines SEM and confocal Raman imaging. Through RISE microscopy ultra-structural surface properties can be linked to molecular compound information.
Packaging materials function as a barrier to protect products from potential damage from premature aging that can occur from interacting with light, atmospheric water, oxygen, and so forth.
The drying of a pressure-sensitive polymer adhesive was monitored by attenuated total internal reflection (ATR) IR spectroscopy. Correlational analysis revealed changes in the composition of the film surface with time.
Although most often associated with Christmas, multicolored holiday lights are used year-round as an appealing decorative accent.
