Mother and child union: fNIRS reveals stress effects

Date: Sep 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

Functional Near-infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) has been used by researchers in Singapore as a non-invasive way to measure brain activity to show that parental stress can affect the formation of a strong bond between parent and child.

Journal Highlight: Infrared spectral analysis of low concentration magnetoactive polymers

Date: Aug 29, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

FTIR and Raman spectroscopy have been used to characterise magnetoactive polymers containing low amounts (1-3 wt.%) of low carbonyl iron particles.

Water-gas-shift: IR and neutron catalytic analysis

Date: Aug 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

Infrared spectroscopy and a range of other techniques have been used to study a prominent catalyst that allows the water-gas shift reaction to purify and generate hydrogen on the industrial scale.

Journal Highlight: A relationship between blue and near‐IR global spectral reflectance and the response of global average reflectance to change in cloud cover observed from DSCOVR EPIC

Date: Jul 29, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A detailed analysis of Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera spectral data has revealed that the vector composed of blue and near‐IR reflectance follows a counterclockwise closed‐loop trajectory as Earth rotates and is influenced by cloud cover, which could be useful for exoplanet research.

Journal Highlight: OSIRIS‐REx visible and near‐infrared observations of the moon

Date: Jul 2, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Lunar spectra obtained by the OSIRIS‐REx Visible and InfraRed Spectrometer showed evidence of several candidate absorption features that confirmed results from other missions and provided evidence for lunar regolith containing a mixture of plagioclase and orthopyroxene minerals, as expected for highlands terrain.

Waxing lyrical: FTIR for plastic biodegradation

Date: Jul 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

A range of techniques including Fourier-transform infradred (FTIR) spectroscopy have been used to study how gut bacteria in the Wax Moth, Galleria mellonella, can lead to bidegradation of that troubling plastic, polyethylene.

Prehistoric recycling: Sharpening shown by FTIR

Date: Jun 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy reveals that our ancestors recycled and re-sharpened flint tools as long ago as 400 000 years, according to a study of artefacts from the Qesem Cave, located just outside Tel Aviv, Israel.

Saturn's storms: Infrared dives deep

Date: May 1, 2019

Author: David Bradley

Vast storms in the upper atmosphere of gas giant planets can contain material swept up from much lower in the atmosphere. Infrared data from the visible and infrared mapping spectrometer instrument aboard the Cassini spacecraft, which orbited and was used by astronomers to study the planet Saturn for thirteen years, reveals as much through deep-learning studies.

Journal Highlight: Development and application of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy for detection of milk adulteration in practice

Date: Apr 29, 2019

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The simultaneous use of targeted and untargeted models applied to FTIR spectra for detecting specific milk adulterants across relevant concentration ranges has been reviewed and proven to be an effective strategy.
