A Survey of Basic Instrument Components Used in Spectroscopy, Part 3: Atomic Spectroscopy

September 01, 2022

In this third part of this four-part series on spectroscopy instrument components, we take a closer look at components used in atomic spectroscopy instrumentation—from beryllium and Kapton windows used in X-ray analysis to sampler and skimmer cones and plasma torches for ICP systems.

The 2022 Emerging Leader in Molecular Spectroscopy Award

September 01, 2022

Lu Wei of the California Institute of Technology, the 2022 winner of the Emerging Leader in Molecular Spectroscopy Award, is applying stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy for bioanalysis, spectroscopy-informed design of vibrational imaging probes, and sample-engineering strategies.

Resonant Surface-Enhanced Infrared Spectroscopy (Resonant SEIRA) Using Metal Nanoantennas

August 01, 2021

Resonant SEIRA overcomes the limitations of traditional Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy for minute sample sizes of relatively low absorptivity. Frank Neubrech of Heidelberg University is exploring resonant SEIRA in applications such as monitoring dynamic processes and hyperspectral infrared chemical imaging.
