Mars on the run: Liquid water spotted

Date: Nov 1, 2015

Author: David Bradley

NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has provided perhaps the strongest evidence we have so far that liquid water still flows, albeit intermittently, on the Red Planet, opening up the possibility that microbial life may one day be discovered there.

Journal Highlight: Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) predicts non-structural carbohydrate concentrations in different tissue types of a broad range of tree species

Date: Oct 15, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A general concentration calibration was developed for non-structural carbohydrates that integrates tree species and tissue types and can identify characteristic IR spectral regions associated with the molecules.

Invisibility cloak: Hiding the microscopic

Date: Oct 1, 2015

Author: David Bradley

A microscopic invisibility cloak based on brick-like blocks of gold nanoantennae could pave the way to a flexible device for making an object invisible in visible light.

Journal Highlight: Near-infrared spectroscopy for intracoronary detection of lipid-rich plaques to understand atherosclerotic plaque biology in man and guide clinical therapy

Date: Sep 15, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Near-infrared spectroscopy combined with intravascular ultrasound is a promising new intracoronary imaging method that is able to specifically quantify lipid accumulation measured as the lipid core burden index.

To dye for: Breast cancer on the margins

Date: Sep 1, 2015

Author: David Bradley

Molecular dyes, more well known as food colourants, have been used for NIR diffuse spectroscopic observations of resectioned breast tissue for women treated with breast-conserving cancer surgery.

Journal Highlight: Detection and quantification of Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cow milk by near-infrared spectroscopy

Date: Aug 15, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Near-IR spectroscopy was used to detect and discriminate between Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cow milk, to assess the degree of spoilage.

Neurodegenerative disease: New infrared clues

Date: Aug 1, 2015

Author: David Bradley

Scientists at l'École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have successfully combined infrared spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy in nanoIR to distinguish between disease-causing aggregation of proteins and normal activity, the findings could lead to new clues regarding neurodegenerative diseases.

Journal Highlight: Fourier transformed near infrared (FT-NIR) spectroscopy for the estimation of parameters in pretreated lignocellulosic materials for bioethanol production

Date: Jul 15, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Prediction models were developed with FT-NIR spectroscopy and multivariate analysis for the cellulose crystallinity index, saccharification and ethanol yield, and glucan, hemicellulose and lignin content of two pulps.

Nuclear spintronics: Infrared turns up the heat

Date: Jul 1, 2015

Author: David Bradley

Nuclear spintronic technologies are a step closer thanks to US researchers. They have used infrared radiation to align nuclear spins in a  consistent and controllable way using a  high-performance silicon carbide material that is practical, convenient and inexpensive.

Journal Highlight: Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies evaluated by near-infrared spectroscopy

Date: Jun 15, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

In this study, near-infrared spectroscopy was studied to see if it can determine the metabolic patterns of dermatomyositis, polymyositis and inclusion-body myositis.
