Filamentous fungi (molds) are a major cause of life-threatening infections in immunocompromised individuals. Hence, there is an urgent need for their rapid and accurate identification.
For trace element analyses in gases, liquids, and solids, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is a rapid chemical analysis technology that has been extensively developed.
A new light source produces ultrashort infrared pulses with previously unachieved peak intensities and stability at wavelengths around 12 µm.
Pfeiffer Vacuum, a leading provider of vacuum technology, introduces the first rotary vane pump for mass spectrometry with a hermetically sealed pump housing.
Researchers at The University of Texas at Arlington have created a brand-new method for measuring the properties of the topmost atomic layer of materials without taking into account data from the deeper layers.
Astronomers today aim to observe the faintest and farthest objects. The newest facilities for doing this are Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs), which have apertures in the range of several dozen meters.
A recent study published in Remote Sensing demonstrates the use of an aircraft campaign to measure atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration over the Dunhuang desert site in western China.
A new algorithm estimates intracranial pressure based on hemoglobin levels through the use of near-infrared spectroscopic cardiac pulse waveforms.
A team of researchers including a materials researcher from Oregon State University (OSU) has designed a superior tool to quantify light, contributing to a field called optical spectrometry in a manner that could enhance numerous things ranging from environmental monitoring to smartphone cameras.
A recent study published in Sensors demonstrates the development of a handheld pH instrument named pHyter. The researchers determined the accuracy of pH measurements made using the pHyter compared with desktop spectrophotometric seawater pH measurements and electrochemical sensors.
