SMS Reveals Hidden Behaviors
SMS Reveals Hidden Behaviors
Single-molecule spectroscopy is gaining traction in a wide range of fields, from DNA sequencing to understanding how cells, drugs, genes or proteins interact. The potency of single-molecule techniques is their capability to attain the ultimate limit of sensitivity — a single emitter. No averaging over a large number of molecules is required, since the properties of just one molecule are measured at a time.

Spectroscopy Explores Photoinduced Reactions in Anticancer Drug
Spectroscopy Explores Photoinduced Reactions in Anticancer Drug
Using IR spectroscopy, researchers have gained fresh insight into how a platinum-based chemotherapy drug candidate functions when activated by light. Completely inactive and nontoxic in the dark, the treatment can be targeted to cancerous areas and is triggered only when directed light hits it.

Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Beyond the Lab
Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Beyond the Lab
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) techniques have been studied and applied for more than half a century, but only recently has LIBS moved from research circles to industry. Offering advantages over other analytical techniques, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy is useful in mineral extraction, forensics and point-of-care blood analysis.

Nano-FTIR Spectroscopy Reveals Material’s True Nature
Nano-FTIR Spectroscopy Reveals Material’s True Nature
Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) from about 2 to 20 µm is a common analytical tool for characterizing material and useful in a range of applications in analytical chemistry, biology, geology and medicine. While conventional FTIR spectroscopy has limited spatial resolution, a technique called nano-FTIR achieves nanoscale-level spatial resolution by combining IR spectroscopy and scattering-type near-field scanning microscopy.

MIR Spectroscopy Could Be Used to Detect Airborne Toxicants
MIR Spectroscopy Could Be Used to Detect Airborne Toxicants
Scientists have discovered a way to detect trace amounts of chemicals in the air by using an IR laser to identify the unique frequency of individual molecules. The technique is sensitive enough to detect a molecule present in the air at concentrations as low as one part per billion.
