Identifying chemicals from a distance could take a step forward with the introduction of a two-laser system being developed at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In a paper published in the Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, Ali Passian and colleagues present a technique that uses a quantum cascade laser to "pump," or strike, a target, and another laser to monitor the material's response as a result of temperature-induced changes. That information allows for the...

After several decades of research and development into hyperspectral imaging, which greatly enhances our ability to characterize the state of Earth, the technique has been embraced by the Earth-observation community and has entered the mainstream of remote sensing. The idea behind hyperspectral imaging, also known as imaging spectroscopy, is simple. In the 1970s, multispectral remote sensors produced images with relatively few broad wavelength bands that allowed us to understand our...

PITTSBURGH, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists at ChemImage are pleased to report significant improvements in the ability to enhance contrast of untreated fingerprints on paper substrates. Using the CONDOR(TM) Hyperspectral Imaging System, application scientists at ChemImage have been able to apply new developments in software and hardware configurations resulting in the enhancement of more ridge detail of untreated latent prints on paper. "The results are very promising," said John...


Word of the Day
attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
