Researchers at the University of Illinois’ Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology developed a spectroscopic microscope enabling optical measurements of molecular conformations and orientations in biological samples. The device is the instrumentational component of a measurement technique that the researchers said allowed them to increase the speed and accuracy at which they obtained images of such samples at the microscopic level.
The advancement stems specifically from a previously introduced infrared spectroscopic imaging technique, and, said Rohit Bhargava, a professor of bioengineering and the director of the Cancer Center at Illinois, aims to incorporate the concept and study of molecular chirality into…READ MORE
