It is only in the last two decades that Raman spectroscopy has begun to realize its potential as an almost universally applicable analytical technique from materials and life sciences applications to point of care analysis.
This Application Note, from Ocean Optics, explores how absorbance spectroscopy and chemometric analysis are used for authentication and quality assurance in the production of alcoholic drinks.
Read how photoluminescence and electroluminescence spectroscopy are used to probe new material compositions for optoelectronic devices to explain their structure and kinetics. Herein, we present the results on Poly(3-hexyl) thiophene-2,5-diyl (P3HT) and [6,6]-phenyl C61 butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) and specify the required instrumentation for steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence and electroluminescence measurements.
As point-of-care molecular diagnostics transforms medicine by bringing sophisticated diagnostic testing to the patient, the need for compact optical and detection technologies is increasing. Highly integrated PixelSensor™ multispectral sensors fill this niche well, reducing the complexity, footprint, and cost of OEM instrumentation significantly.
Quality and precision is a fundamental part of optical component manufacturing and an appropriately specified optic is crucial to get the performance your system requires. The optical surfaces in a system are the main contributors to transmission loss, wavefront errors and aberrations. In addition mechanical specifications can also impact the alignment and stability of an element and consequently the overall system performance.
