Market Profile

April 01, 2011

One of the fastest growing new areas of demand for Raman spectroscopy is in the security market. Technological improvements have helped to unlock the large potential of the technique for security applications. There has been a rash of acquisitions in the market that have completely reshaped the competitive landscape over the last few years, which is typical of such dynamic markets.

A general MIC–ICP-MS method has been successfully developed for the assay of elemental impurities in pharmaceutical products.

The wavelet packet transform (WPT) combined with the modified uninformative variable elimination (MUVE) method (WPT–MUVE) is proposed to select variables for multivariate calibration of spectral data.

From the Editor

April 01, 2011

The growing and evolving use of homemade explosives, as well as biological and chemical threats, in terrorism and modern warfare, has driven the development of new and improved methods for detecting and identifying these materials. University and military researchers, as well as commercial instrument companies, are working hard to develop systems that are portable and rugged enough for field use, particularly for standoff detection.
