Enhanced local electric fields are predominant in nonlinear optical properties, particularly in surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), which is a sensitive technique used for the detection of trace amounts of chemicals. Analysis of the electric fields around nanostructures indicates that they can provide a basic foundation to obtain greater SERS intensity. Professor ZHANG Zhongyue and his group from the College of Physics and Information Technology at Shaanxi Normal University have...

Finding Explosives With Laser Beams

Scientists at Vienna University of Technology have found a way to detect chemicals over long distances, even if they are enclosed in containers People like to keep a safe distance from explosive substances, but in order to analyze them, close contact is usually inevitable. At the Vienna University of Technology, a new method has now been developed to detect chemicals inside a container over a distance of more than a hundred meters. Laser light is scattered in a very specific way by...

Part of managing diabetes involves piercing a finger several times daily to monitor blood sugar levels. Raman spectroscopy could let diabetics monitor glucose without those daily pinpricks. In the past, this would have required a tabletop's worth of equipment. Two former graduate students at MIT's George R. Harrison Spectroscopy Laboratory, Chae-Ryon Kong and Ishan Barman, detail in the AIP's journal AIP Advances how to potentially reduce the overall size of this sensor by making an important...

Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) reveals invisible colors in art masterpiecesWhat do Winslow Homer's For to Be a Farmer's Boy (1887) and Vincent van Gogh's The Bedroom (1889) have in common?First, they are both displayed at the Art Institute of Chicago (AIC). Homer's painting represents a high point in the career of America's premiere watercolorist, while Van Gogh's painting is perhaps one of most recognizable paintings in the world. However, they also share a key physical...

Scientists are using antibody-based techniques to identify and study the organic compounds used in paintings Proteins, enzymes, antibodies--when we hear these words, we are likely to conjure images in our heads of colorful molecular models, cancer, flu shots or even skin care. However, we seldom associate these terms with art. What does a protein, like collagen, for example, have to do with a Renaissance painting? The answer may surprise you. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MMA) in New...

Princeton researchers have invented an extremely sensitive sensor that opens up new ways to detect a wide range of substances, from tell-tale signs of cancer to hidden explosives. The sensor, which is the most sensitive of its kind to date, relies on a completely new architecture and fabrication technique developed by the Princeton researchers. The device boosts faint signals generated by the scattering of laser light from a material placed on it, allowing the identification of various...
