Spectroscopy

A preview of the conference to be held in Baltimore, Maryland, April 23–27, 2012

A review of the application of IR spectroscopy for the analysis of color components in winemaking, and the contribution of spectral preprocessing to improve the multivariate calibration.

Spectroscopy

Raman has a unique capability to characterize nanoscale materials that are between crystalline and amorphous.

Confocal Raman microscopy can identify particles in the 5–50 ?m range and can bridge the gap between micro-FT-IR and SEM-EDS analyses.

Spectroscopy

By combining atomic force microscopy (AFM) and infrared (IR) spectroscopy, one can attain spatial resolution improvements of two orders of magnitude over traditional IR spectroscopy.

A lively exchange of perspectives emerged recently on the LinkedIn group for Spectroscopy, as well as on the group for our sister magazine, LCGC. The conversation, sparked by a New York Times article, was about what it takes to become a scientist and why so many students, particularly in the United States, become discouraged along the way.

One of the newest and fastest-growing subsegments of the molecular spectroscopy market is terahertz spectroscopy. It makes use of a previously underused segment of the electromagnetic spectrum and is already seeing demand from a variety of industries. Although it remains unclear which industries will become major adopters of the technology, it looks certain that terahertz spectroscopy will develop into a major segment of the molecular spectroscopy market.
