Diseases like dementia are so difficult to diagnose and equally difficult to understand. But a team of U.K.-based researchers say functional near-IR spectroscopy could hold the key.

Economically motivated food adulteration (food fraud) has become a worldwide concern. Now, Purdue University researchers are fighting this dangerous and deceptive practice using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy.

While scientists have been studying Earth’s atmosphere and deep space for decades, there is still much to discover and more to learn. New technology by a team at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab is helping scientists do that by obtaining advanced data.
