Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Fuel fraud: Succumbs to SERS system

The details of a patented, stable silver nano-colloid material for use in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) have been reported by researchers from the University of Lincoln, UK. The system has already demonstrated its utility in portable instrumentation for the identification of fuel fraud.

p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0cm;margin-bottom:.0001pt;line-height: normal" Raman and infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and other techniques have been used to examine a rare mineral sample of hydrous ringwoodite trapped within a $20 rough diamond for years. Critical water measurements of the sample at the Arctic Resources Geochemistry Laboratory are set to reveal the presence of water based on isotopic microanalysis, suggesting that there may be vast oceans between 410 and 660...

A silver colloid substrate was used to obtain Fourier-transform surface-enhanced Raman spectra of natural historical dyes and build up a spectral reference database of pure dyes.

Spatially offset Raman spectroscopy data were processed with three different multivariate techniques and compared for their performance with a spectrally challenging plastic model system and the analysis of human bone transcutaneously in vivo.
