Journal Highlight: Applicability of micro-FTIR in detecting shale heterogeneity

Date: Jan 1, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Samples of shale from the Illinois Basin have been analysed by micro-FTIR spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopic X-ray spectroscopy to explore the distribution, connectivity and chemical composition of organic matter, clay minerals, carbonate minerals and quartz.

Are metamaterials electric: Infrared imaging

Date: Nov 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

A hybrid metamaterial behaves like an electric version of the chameleon's skin, changing colour when a current is applied but also becoming warmer, at least when viewed in the infrared. This could be the first proof-of-principle of a controllable metamaterial device, according to engineers at Penn State University.
