XRF mapping, infrared and hyperspectral imaging reveal early designs for Leonardo da Vinci’s The Virgin of the Rocks.

Over 1,000 chapters from ICNIRS conference proceedings are now freely available.

A new hyperspectral graphene photodetector is being launched at Laser World of Photonics (24–27 June) by Emberion. The linear array will be available at a lower cost than existing InGaAs infrared sensors.

The winner of the 2019 Tomas Hirschfeld Award is JSI Editorial Board Member José Manuel Amigo Rubio.

A robust protocol for nanoscale chemical imaging using tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) has been developed.

A real-time hyperspectral imaging technique can identify dirt and bacteria on surfaces leading to informed decisions as to when and how much to clean.

The bleaching of corals is an indication of their poor health due to the stress of increased water temperature and other factors. A cost-effective solution to monitor coral health, based on a fluorescence hyperspectral camera mounted on an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV), is being developed by scientists at the University of Bristol, UK, and Sealife London Aquarium.

A new miniature broadband IR emitter enables spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging miniaturisation.

A Finnish nanosatellite has now reached space equipped with the world’s smallest infrared hyperspectral camera and returned its first images.

Agilent’s 8700 Laser Direct Infrared (LDIR) chemical imaging system employs a single-element electrically cooled detector to eliminate laser coherence artefacts from images and spectra.
