Smart garments using embedded near infrared spectroscopy sensors are being developed at the University of British Columbia.
Many chemical processes run so fast that they are only roughly understood. To clarify these processes, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now developed a pump-probe spectroscopy methodology with a resolution of quintillionths of a second. The new technology has the potential to help better understand processes like photosynthesis and develop faster computer chips.
Researchers at the Universities of Kyoto and Tokyo in Japan have developed a new method of light detection for NMR by up-converting radio-frequency signals into optical signals.
Infrared laser techniques have been used to study methane scattering on a nickel surface for the first time with full quantum-state resolution.
