Current Trends in Analytical Spectroscopy: Technique and Instrument Modifications for both New and Improved Measurements

March 01, 2018

This article discusses advances in techniques and modifications to technologies that are improving measurements and enabling well-established techniques to break into new and exciting fields of research.We survey developments in infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma–optical emission spectroscopy, and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy

Recent Trends in Analytical Spectroscopy: A Push Toward In Situ, In Vivo, and Minimally Invasive Techniques

March 01, 2017

Analytical spectroscopy is a mature field, but advances in instrumentation, measurement, and sample preparation techniques continue to be made. Much recent development has seen a heavy emphasis towards techniques and instrumentation that allow for non-invasive, in-situ, and in-vivo procedures while still retaining a high degree of sensitivity. This article will review some of this progress over the past two to three years across five major spectroscopic fields: Raman, LIBS, XRF, IR, and ICP techniques.
