NIR spectroscopy offers a practical way to monitor the temperature of machine parts made from nylon, say US chemists.
Nominations are now being invited by the International Council of Near Infrared Spectroscopy (ICNIRS) for the 2014 Tomas Hirschfeld Award. This award, sponsored by Büchi Labortechnik AG, Switzerland, is made in recognition of contributions to the enhancement of near infrared spectroscopy. It is made on the basis of excellence in research conducted by a scientist of international standing.
Belgium scientists have discovered why NIR models made from artificial mixtures of grass species are not very good at determining the species present in real grass samples.
Researchers at the University of Toronto have used functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to show that a reward given for telling the truth gives people greater satisfaction than the same reward given for deceit.
Combined MRI/NIR spectroscopy may benefit women whose mammogram showed an abnormality and requires further testing to rule out cancer.
Chinese researchers have shown that visible and NIR spectroscopy can detect low concentrations of heavy metals in agricultural soil, but only thanks to organic matter.
Brazilian chemists have shown that NIR spectroscopy can determine whether natural gas contains high or low concentrations of methane.
Everyone knows that green vegetables such as broccoli are healthy, but now Irish and Spanish food scientists have used NIR spectroscopy to identify which bits are the healthiest.
Researchers from Denmark have assessed a whole suite of advanced statistical techniques to determine which is best at producing calibration models from non-linear NIR data.
