Aims and Scope

NIR news is the official newsletter of the International Council for Near Infrared Spectroscopy. It informs, educates and keeps you up-to-date with developments and conferences throughout the world on Near Infrared Spectroscopy and technology. NIR news is published eight times a year. A team of Regional Editors in Australia, Europe, Japan and North America helps to ensure that NIR news has an international outlook, which is supplemented with news of NIR groups in different countries.

Regular features

  • Chemometric Space—all you need to know about chemometrics, written by Tom Fearn.
  • Feature articles are published in each issue on topics of current or general interest to those working with NIR.
  • References keep you aware of latest research papers found in a multitude of journals; around 70-80 published in every issue.

Büchi Labortechnik AG has acquired all shares of NIR-Online GmbH.

By monitoring blood flow in the brains of six climbers scaling Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, German medical researchers have identified a possible way to prevent the headaches that are a common feature of altitude sickness. This work appears in the latest issue of JNIRS—Journal of Near Infrared Spectroscopy.

Good news for analytical scientists who like their ale: food scientists from Italy and Denmark have shown that Fourier transform NIR spectroscopy can be used to monitor beer fermentation.

By producing NIR hyperspectral images and then projecting them on the ground, two Norwegian scientists have come up with a novel technique for identifying tiny bone fragments on complex surfaces such as forest floors.
