Contractual obligation: Raman spectroscopy reveals collagen secret

Date: Feb 1, 2015

Author:

Raman spectroscopy has been used to investigate the conformation of molecular chains of collagen and how this purportedly inactive protein can under contraction.

Getting heavy with microbes: Raman tweezes them apart

Date: Jan 8, 2015

Author: David Bradley

The incorporation of heavy water into the biomolecules of bacteria has given an international research team the means to tease apart and identify the activities of different members of microbial communities using Raman microscopy.

Journal Highlight: Theoretical vibrational Raman and surface-enhanced Raman scattering spectra of water interacting with silver clusters

Date: Jan 2, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The Raman spectrum of a water molecule adsorbed on a cluster of 20 silver atoms has been measured and the plasmonic electromagnetic effect of the silver surface was also considered to give a theoretical prediction of the SERS spectrum.

Journal Highlight: Direct analysis of traditional Chinese medicines using surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)

Date: Nov 5, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

SERS was used to analyse the traditional Chinese medicines Coptis chinensis and Phellodendron amurense, and their main active constituent berberine using silver nanospheres as SERS-active probes.

Hydrogen confinement: Phase IV

Date: Nov 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Combining hydrogen and its heavier sibling deuterium under pressure can create a novel, disordered, "Phase IV" material as revealed by Raman spectroscopy according to US researchers.

Journal Highlight: Rapid and label-free identification of normal spermatozoa based on image analysis and micro-Raman spectroscopy

Date: Oct 6, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Micro-Raman spectroscopy combined with image analysis can be a potentially useful tool for rapid and label-free identification of normal sperm cell by providing both morphological and biochemical information.

Diamond: Hanging by a nanothread

Date: Oct 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

For the first time, scientists have made ultra-thin 'diamond nanothreads' with a unique structure that could be stiffer and stronger than known polymers and nanotubes. The team used a range of techniques including Raman spectroscopy, X-ray and neutron diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and first-principle calculations to analyse and characterise the materials

Journal Highlight: Pen-on-paper approach toward the design of universal surface enhanced Raman scattering substrates

Date: Sep 15, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A pen-on-paper approach for making SERS substrates should bring the technique closer to the real world using ink cartridges fixed to a pen to create plasmonic sensors at will.
