Raman Imaging: Seeing the Motion of Single Molecule in Real Time

UC Irvine chemists have scored a scientific first: capturing moving images of a single molecule as it vibrates, or "breathes," and shifts from one quantum state to another. The groundbreaking achievement, led by Ara Apkarian, professor of chemistry, and Eric Potma, associate professor of chemistry, opens a window into the strange realm of quantum mechanics - where nanoscopic bits of matter seemingly defy the logic of classical physics.

WITec PaperAward for Outstanding Scientific Publications

The winners of this year's WITec PaperAwards have been announced. Research groups from the USA, France, and Germany won the PaperAwards in gold, silver, and bronze, respectively. The annual awards honor outstanding scientific publications that feature results acquired with a WITec instrument. Scientists from all over the world submitted more than 60 publications, from between January and December 2013, to this year's competition. A jury chose the three winning papers from among the submissions to be honored with a PaperAward. Selection criteria included the impact of scientific results and the innovation of the applied techniques.

Tip-Enhanced Raman Imaging of Individual Carbon Nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes are expected to be used in a myriad of applications ranging from military protective clothing to hydrogen storage. Due to their nanometer dimensions, however, the structure and surface chemistry of individual carbon nanotubes cannot be easily studied using conventional techniques. Norihiko Hayazawa and colleagues from the Near Field NanoPhotonics Research Team at the RIKEN Center for Advanced Photonics have now developed a high-resolution microscopy technique that can resolve individual carbon nanotubes under ambient conditions. The work has been published in Nature Communications.
