Using UV-Vis MicroSpectroscopy to Uncover the Spectrum of Stardust

Cosmic exploration holds a unique place in the human psyche. It routinely pushes the boundaries of our understanding, and also of our technical capabilities. Although astronomy is largely concerned with queries and observations on a vast scale, many key insights come from the smallest possible components. Often the intricate details of the universe's composition are hidden in the tiniest particles.

How Microspectrophotometers Help Unveil Structural Colors

Ever wondered why a butterfly's wings shimmer with iridescent hues or a peacock's feathers display a dazzling array of colors? Unlike pigments, which absorb and reflect specific wavelengths of light, these vibrant tones arise from a fascinating phenomenon known as structural color. These colors are vivid, dynamic, and can display properties such as iridescence, changing appearance when viewed from different angles. 

Using Microspectrophotometry to Tag Art for Authenticity

In art, verifying the authenticity of pieces during transactions is paramount. While functional, traditional electronic tags and labels are easily detected and counterfeited, presenting a need for a more covert and effective tagging method. Microspectrophotometry offers an innovative solution to this challenge by utilizing aluminum (Al) nanostructures resonating across ultraviolet (UV) to infrared (IR) spectra. These micro-tags are microscopic, camouflaged into their surroundings, and capable of containing multiple sets of information, making them an ideal choice for discreet art tagging.

Understanding Coke Petrography in the Steel Industry

Coke petrography is an essential analytical tool in the steel industry and offers profound insights into the quality of coke used in steel alloy production. This blog post delves into the nuances of coke petrography, outlining its significance, methods, and applications in the steel industry, focusing on the advancements and solutions provided by CRAIC Technologies.

Seeing Red: Microspectrophotometric Evidence for Color Blindness in Sharks

Sharks, with their sophisticated sensory systems, have evolved to become apex predators in the marine environment. A key aspect of their sensory array is vision, a subject of intrigue and research. A landmark study using point-measurement microspectrophotometry has provided significant insights into the visual capabilities of sharks, particularly regarding their potential for color vision.
