Shimadzu’s UV-3600 and its successor UV-3600 Plus ultraviolet-visible near-infrared spectrophotometer systems are the world's first to be equipped with three detectors. By combining a photomultiplier tube for the ultraviolet-visible region and an InGaAs and cooled PbS detector for the near-infrared region, the instrument delivers greatly enhanced sensitivity throughout the entire range of wavelengths measured.

Photonics can be an opaque field of endeavour. Now, new research could lend a little transparency to the science by shedding light an alternative approach to applications.

Fluorescence quenching between caffeine and chlorogenic and caffeic acids can be rationalized in terms of static quenching or the formation of non-fluorescent complexes.

Fluorescent studies have revealed how cyanobacteria use internal molecular machines known as carboxysomes to boost their ability to convert carbon dioxide into sugar during photosynthesis. The insight couldbe exploited in nanotechnology and biomass production.
