There is no difference in the spectral signature of hydrogen and antihydrogen, according to the ALPHA experiment at CERN.

Researchers from Umeå University in Sweden have described a new method based on molecular spectroscopy to study biochemical changes that occur in the pancreas during the development of diabetes.

Bruker and their partner Diagnosticum are forming the Hungarian Wine Consortium to develop a new programme to authenticate and identify Hungarian wines.

A new method, using deep-ultraviolet continuum pulses, has been developed to efficiently measure electron transfer in dye-sensitised, transition-metal oxide photovoltaics.

Scientists from the EU’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) have carried out a multi-year study based on comparative metabolomics combined with chemometrics on carrots coming from different agronomic environments. The results highlight the potential of metabolomics fingerprinting for organic food authentication purposes.
