Raman spectroscopy is an analytical method based on measuring the scattering of infrared and visible light. This technique can be used to investigate the structure and various properties of the material.
The study of tribology investigates the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. The field draws in expertise across disciplines to determine and apply the principles of friction, lubrication, and wear. This article discusses how atomic force microscopes play a role in nanoscale tribology.
In this article, we’re going to look at how electron microscopy and spectroscopy can be used in the analysis of friction and wear.
Spectral analysis is an important research tool for deciphering information in various fields of science and technology.
The negative aspects of fossil fuels and non-renewable energy sources are being scrutinized more and more due to their harmful impact on the environment.
The two types of solar power are solar thermal and solar panels, also known as solar photovoltaic - both absorb available energy from the sun and convert that raw energy into usable energy.
Optical emission and atomic emission spectrometers are two methods of analysis that use quantitative measurements of the optical emission from atoms to identify and calculate chemical constituent concentration.
Glass can be defined as an amorphous solid. In this article, we will review some of the optical properties of glass.
Studies have shown that fiber optics can be used in order to achieve a concentration of solar energy. Light can be transmitted through the optical fibers and concentrated in a useful and efficient way of handling solar energy.
The unique properties of graphene mean that not only can it offer speed and cost advantages when integrated into optical communications, but it can also present new functionalities.
