Scientists and campaigners collected water samples at separate points along each of the 13 rivers, which were analysed by Greenpeace scientists at the University of Exeter using an infrared plastic detector called a fourier-transform infrared spectrometer. In the first nationwide exercise of its kind, experts found 1,271 pieces of plastic, ranging in size from straw and bottle-top fragments to tiny microbeads less than 1mm across.
Galileo carried an infrared spectrometer, an instrument scientists use to examine the composition of the surface they're examining.
The scientific devices the probe will be using, including the Emirates eXploration imager (EXI), Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer (EMUS), and the Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer (EMIRS), are ready.
Among the unveiled achievements were: a nuclear propulsion controller, an advanced radio diagnostic in the treatment of liver cancer, a quantum technology system, an integrated zonal centrifuge, and the FTIR infrared spectrometer.
The IRcell substantially increases infrared spectrometer sensitivity, enabling unprecedented trace gas measurements for advanced industrial and environmental analyses in a compact, easily integrated footprint.
"Cassini's long mission and frequent visits to Titan have allowed us to observe the pattern of seasonal changes on Titan, in exquisite detail, for the first time," Athena Coustenis, a member of Cassini's Composite Infrared Spectrometer team at the Observatoire de Paris, said in a (http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=6655) statement released Thursday.
The new cloud was detected by Cassini's infrared instrument the Composite Infrared Spectrometer, or CIRS which obtains profiles of the atmosphere at invisible thermal wavelengths.
Kidderminster-based FlemingPTC has announced the acquisition of a new Spectrum Two Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) to complement its portfolio of polymer characterisation techniques.
coli has a specific infrared spectrum that can be read with a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. Infrared light is passed over a sample.
The hexane layer was removed, dried under a nitrogen stream, redissolved in chloroform and deposited onto a temperature-controlled zinc selenide crystal coupled to an infrared spectrometer. Spectra in the 600 to 4000 [cm.sup.-1] range were collected in real time from samples exposed to 60 C.
The infrared spectrometer on board LCROSS took measurements of infrared radiation as the spacecraft passed through the plume.
