Growing Developments with NIR Spectroscopy
Growing Developments with NIR Spectroscopy
Advancements to NIR LED emitters are helping to grow the product portfolio for mobile spectroscopy and opening new application fields for well-being and health monitoring. Consumers will soon be able to use their smartphones to check the freshness of supermarket food, measure the calories in restaurant meals, and verify whether a medication is valid and contains its prescribed contents.

Hamamatsu Corporation - Hamamatsu’s SMD Mini-Spectrometer
Hamamatsu Corporation
Hamamatsu’s SMD Mini-Spectrometer
The new SMD mini-spectrometer series from Hamamatsu enables new levels of flexibility for designers with its remarkably compact design. Our latest grating type spectrometer, the SMD series model C14384MA-01 features high sensitivity for near-infrared detection, compressed size, lightweight design, and low cost. The C14384MA-01 is about 1/40th of the cubic size and 1/30th of the weight compared to Hamamatsu's MS series of mini-spectrometers, representing a significantly lower profile that enables its use in many devices.

Single-Beam Multidimensional Coherent Spectroscopy
Single-Beam Multidimensional Coherent Spectroscopy
Multidimensional coherent spectroscopy (MDCS) is a set of laser techniques that nondestructively measures how evolving matter absorbs and emits light. The information present in a multidimensional spectrum is both extensive and straightforward to interpret, and MDCS provides valuable information on materials, chemicals, and biological systems.
