Jovian ribbon: Infrared band

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Scientists in the UK have used the NSFCam instrument at the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility to overturn an earlier theory about dark ribbon of weak hydrogen ion emissions that encircles Jupiter. The research could reshape our thinking about the giant planet's magnetic equator.

Multiple Sclerosis: MRI shows brain iron link

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Researchers at the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York, USA have used a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique, quantitative susceptibility mapping, to measure the concentration of iron in the brains of multiple sclerosis patients. They examined 600 patients, 452 with early-stage disease, and 148 with more advanced disease, and found that when compared with the control group, the MS patients had higher levels of iron in the basal ganglia and lower levels of iron in the thalamus.

Tethered DNA nanorods: UV lines them up

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

A combination of ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy and small-angle X-ray scattering have been used to investigate how DNA "linker" strands can coax nano-sized rods to line up in a manner unlike any other spontaneous arrangement of rod-shaped objects.

Fungal killer: NMR reveals wall architecture

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

There are very few effective antifungal agents in the pharmaceutical arsenal and unfortunately, many types of fungal infection can kill. New research based on solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has looked at fungal cell wall and revealed details of its architecture that might be a new target for drugs to combat such infections.

The big antifreeze: Raman thaws out the science

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

Simulated Raman spectroscopy has provided new insights into how antifreeze proteins, which have been known about for decades, actually work to keep alive animals such as fish and insects despite many living in temperatures that would otherwise frees their bodily fluids.

New doped laser material: X-ray and electron probe

Date: Aug 1, 2018

Author: David Bradley

X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy have been used to characterise crystals of alumina doped with neodymium ions. The material is a new laser material developed by researchers at the University of California San Diego, USA, that is can emit ultra-short, high-power pulses.

Journal Highlight: Seafood phospholipids: Extraction efficiency and phosphorous nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P NMR) profiles

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The absolute concentration of phospholipids in five marine tissues has been determined using quantitative phosphorous nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

Journal Highlight: Advancing Mg/Ca analysis of coralline algae as a climate proxy by assessing LA‐ICP‐OES sampling and coupled Mg/Ca ‐ δ18O analysis

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The use of LA‐ICP‐OES for Mg/Ca analysis of the climate proxy coralline alga Clathromorphum compactum has been validated and showed that climate archive verification is required for each unique coralline algal specimen.

Journal Highlight: Exploring street art paintings by microspatially offset Raman spectroscopy

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Microspatially offset Raman spectroscopy has been used to identify the chemical composition of subsurface layers in real, street art murals.

Journal Highlight: Unravelling the mystery of lunar anomalous craters using radar and infrared observations

Date: Jul 30, 2018

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The existence and spatial distribution of anomalous lunar craters having a high circular polarization ratio that have been imaged by radar and IR spectral measurements do not indicate the presence of large quantities of pure water ice in the polar regions, say researchers.
