HORIBA launches ParticleFinder Raman software
New automated particle location and chemical characterization tool
HORIBA Scientific, a leading innovator in the manufacture of high performance scientific and analytical equipment, is announcing the launch of their new ParticleFinder module for the LabSpec 6 Spectroscopy Suite.
In combination with the full range of HORIBA Raman microscopes ParticleFinder brings a new level of automation and ease of use for particle analysts who require the unique chemical characterization tools that Raman can offer. It is ideally suited for locating and identifying pharmaceutical materials, trace forensic evidence, geological rock/mineral particles, and airborne contaminants trapped on filters – indeed, any particulate matter where automated molecular analysis is key.

Webinar on Raman for oil shale analysis
HORIBA Scientific, in partnership with Spectroscopy magazine, will present a webinar entitled “Raman Spectroscopy of Oil Shale”. This webinar will cover the application of Raman spectroscopy for the characterization of oil shale, particularly black shale. It will illustrate that Raman spectroscopy is useful for characterizing the varieties of kerogen structure (chemical bonding and solid state), differentiating shales with different relative amounts of kerogen to inorganic mineral, and differentiating polymorphs of naturally occurring inorganic oxides, including shale, kerogen, oil, and calcite.
The webinar will be presented by David Tuschel (Manager of Raman Applications for HORIBA Scientific in the USA) at 8am PDT / 11am EDT / 4pm BST / 5pm CEST.

Nature paper features HORIBA Scientific T64000 Raman microscope
Researchers at Nanyang Technical University in Singapore have recently published a letter in Nature outlining the first example of laser induced cooling of a semiconductor material. Zhang, Li, Chen and Xiong used a T64000 triple spectrometer to characterize group II-VI cadmium sulfide nano-belts, which exhibit laser induced cooling – analyses included general chemical characterization using Raman spectroscopy, in addition to high resolution spectral analysis of anti-Stokes photoluminescence which allowed precise temperature characterization of the nano-belts. The research highlights the feasibility of using semiconductor materials for optical refrigeration.
