Horiba Scientific (Edison, New Jersey) has acquired Photon Technology International (PTI) (Birmingham, New Jersey). PTI is a supplier of research spectrofluorometers, serving the university and research laboratories as well as industrial and biomedical markets.

A critical review of the main developments in instrument technology, calibration, and sample preparation that have made it possible to determine low sulfur concentrations in fuels followed by a discussion of strategies to minimize spectral interferences related to sulfur determination by ICP-MS, such as collision–reaction cells, high-resolution mass analyzers, and the interference standard method.

Highlights of recent advances in three major areas of molecular spectroscopy: infrared (IR), Raman, and fluorescence.

A look at ICP–MS, ICP–OES, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy in the areas of research and development, marketing, application, and use of these techniques.

Here, Li2CaSiO4:Sm3+ reddish orange phosphors were synthesized by a solid-state reaction method and examined by spectroscopic methods.
