Departments

As part of dyslexia study, Wake Forest University researchers develop a software program that integrates data from different imaging modalities.

Masses in Mass Spectrometry: Balancing the Analytical Scales (PDF)

November 01, 2004

Columns

Mass spectrometrists have been measuring masses in the ultrasmall world for the past 50 years. However, a sense of our own accomplishments does not derive from the same perspective linking ultrasmall masses to the normal-mass world.

Depth Profiling with Confocal Raman Microscopy, Part II (PDF)

November 01, 2004

Articles

Part II of the two-part series continues the discussion on the interpretation of confocal Raman data, including how depth resolution is degraded when focusing deep within a sample and how intensity variations can occur when focusing near a sample's surface.

The Baseline: Dichroism Spectroscopy (PDF)

November 01, 2004

Columns

A relatively new technique with a growing number of applications, dichroism spectroscopy is based upon the fact that a sample interacts with the same wavelength of light having different circular polarization in different ways.

Strategies for Higher Throughput MS Analyses (PDF)

November 01, 2004

Articles

The authors discuss current approaches for increasing throughput in MS analyses, including improved software information flow, data management and effective sample preparation, and how researchers should consider each of these with regard to their own needs.
