This article discusses using laser sensors for gas analysis applications.
This article discusses graphene and the optical properties it exhibits.
In general, handheld spectrometers are a more-convenient, mid-range spectroscopy option for analysis than bigger benchtop systems.
For any fiber optic cable to be highly effective at transmitting signals and/or data, the light passing through the fiber optics needs to be coherent, i.e. the light beam needs to be tight so that it doesn’t lose power through some of the light spreading out radially.
AFM has emerged over the last few decades to be a vital tool for measuring the topography and properties of a sample and has vastly expanded its capability over the years.
Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool for chemical identification in a range of fields, from winemaking, to quality control in pharmaceutical manufacturing and forensic analysis.
Higher resolution of any image is achieved by the wavelength of the radiation used for imaging. A typical electron microscopy uses a beam of electrons in the wavelength of ~ 0.02Å for operation at 300kV.
Graphene is an atom-thick form of carbon with such useful properties, it is currently being touted as a kind of ‘wonder material’.
Both LiDAR and RADAR and long-range detection systems that can map the terrain of the Earth, provide distance information, and be used to help guide an autonomous vehicle.
Raman spectroscopy has become a widespread, routine tool for the identification and quantitative analysis of chemical compounds.
