Spectroscopy

Double-beam UV–Vis spectrophotometers include the most advanced instruments in the UV–Vis market today. They allow more rapid and greatly simplified UV–Vis analyses for users. The market for double-beam UV–Vis instruments is dominated by the major diversified scientific instrument manufacturers.

September 2006. The authors rapidly acquire complete vibrational spectra in the fingerprint region using a single femtosecond laser for broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy to image spatially variant compositions of condensed-phase samples.

September 2006. The authors discuss the benefits of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) for the determination of elemental nutrients in foodstuffs and X-ray diffraction (XRD) for the measurement and characterization of different compounds used in the pharmaceuticals industry.
