The infrared spectroscopy channel covers all forms of molecular analysis using IR spectroscopy including near infrared (NIR), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and associated non-destructive testing methods used in environmental analysis, art and archaeology, homeland security, forensics, drug testing and pharmaceutical analysis.
Meta material resonators that allow emission in the infrared to be tuned through changes in the geometry of the resonator have been demonstrated by scientists in France.Read More

While polymers contribute to the convenience of modern life, they also threaten the environment and life, particularly in oceans, as plastic waste. Polymers decompose very slowly. Through physical impact they reduce in size and degrade into fragments of oxidized polymers. The effect of maritime animals or birds picking up polymer fragments of all sizes is well recognized all over the world. Especially fish are victims of human waste, but also seabirds, such as fulmars which carry plastic waste in their...Read More

Optical rulers, more correctly known as laser frequency combs, could be used to calibrate the infra-red spectra recorded by astronomers hunting for Earth-like exoplanets. The combs facilitate precision measurements that can reveal the gravitational pull of planets orbiting distant stars.
