Spectroscopy Spotlight
Resolution in Mid-Infrared Imaging: The Theory
The field of mid-infrared (mid-IR) imaging has made significant developments in recent years, but the theory has not kept pace. Rohit Bhargava, an associate professor of engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the associate director of the University of Illinois Cancer Center, recently undertook studies to address that gap. Spectroscopy spoke to him recently about that work. MORE »
Elevating Excellence in UV-Vis Analyses
From performance to price, Shimadzu’s new compact, research-grade spectrophotometers outclass the competition. With an absorbance level to 8 Abs, measurement range to 1400 nm, ultra-low stray light (0.00005 %T at 220 nm), integrated validation software, they enable confident and convenient use for routine analysis as well as demanding research applications. At prices that can’t be beat.
