One-of-a-kind spectrometer reads vibrations between atoms to find structures of molecules A Rice University laboratory has improved upon its ability to determine molecular structures in three dimensions in ways that challenge long-used standards. By measuring the vibrations between atoms using femtosecond-long laser pulses, the Rice lab of chemist Junrong Zheng is able to discern the positions of atoms within molecules without the restrictions imposed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and...

Glowing, Nanoscale Diamond Optically Levitated By Researchers
2013-08-13 10:17:15

University of Rochester [ Watch The Video - Floating Nanodiamonds Light Measured For First Time ] Researchers at the University of Rochester have measured for the first time light emitted by photoluminescence from a nanodiamond levitating in free space. In a paper published this week in Optics Letters, they describe how they used a laser to trap nanodiamonds in space, and – using another laser – caused the diamonds to emit light at given frequencies. The experiment, led by Nick...

2013-08-09 07:57:15

Gemini Observatory Gemini Observatory’s latest tool for astronomers, a second-generation infrared instrument called FLAMINGOS-2, has “traveled a long road” to begin science observations for the Gemini scientific community. Recent images taken by FLAMINGOS-2 during its last commissioning phase dramatically illustrate that the instrument was worth the wait for astronomers around the world who are anxious to begin using it. “It’s already one of our most requested instruments at...

CSI Technique Avoids Forensic Evidence Contamination
2013-08-09 05:02:59

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the chief concerns at any crime scene investigation is avoiding contamination of forensic evidence. A new study by forensic scientists at the University of Kent, UK, has established a new method of identifying the brand of lipstick someone was wearing at a crime scene without removing the evidence from its bag. The researchers used a technique called Raman spectroscopy that detects laser light. This technique will allow...

Pitt invents the world’s smallest terahertz detector Molecules could soon be “scanned” in a fashion similar to imaging screenings at airports, thanks to a detector developed by University of Pittsburgh physicists. The detector, featured in a recent issue of Nano Letters, may have the ability to chemically identify single molecules using terahertz radiation—a range of light far below what the eye can detect....

2013-08-06 07:04:48

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory An iconic moment in the history of Hollywood movie magic was born in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz when Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale stepped out of the black and white world of Kansas into the rainbow colored world of Oz. An iconic moment in the history of infrared imaging may have been born with the announcement of the first technique to offer full color IR tomography. A collaboration between researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence...
