Spectroscopy Spotlight
Combining Spectroscopic and Chromatographic Techniques
Charles Wilkins, the winner of the 2013 American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry Award in Chemical Instrumentation, has made a number of leading contributions in a wide range of analytical instrumentation including advances in Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, FT-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometry, ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (MS), and computerized laboratory data acquisition and analysis. In a new interview, he talks about his work combining gas chromatography (GC) with IR and MS as well as work combining high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and NMR. MORE »

Counterfeit Clothing Spotted with Spectroscopy
Technology developed by the National Physical Laboratory (Teddington, Middlesex, UK) (NPL) could help reverse the estimated $5.42 billion lost each year through the production of counterfeit clothing. The new technique - based on terahertz time-domain spectroscopy - will help customs officers ascertain whether items of clothing are fake, assisting them in the seizure and destruction of fake goods.

Market Profile: Infrared Microscopy and Imaging
Infrared (IR) microscopy includes both conventional microscope systems and more advanced imaging systems, which are used in two ways. The more traditional IR microscopy method is "point and shoot," where the microscope is used to locate a defect or point of interest on a sample, which is then analyzed using the IR spectrometer. Such systems are useful across a broad range of industries, such as semiconductors and electronics, pharmaceuticals, forensics, biology, and materials. MORE »
