Inexpensive Chip-based Device May Transform SpectrometryExternal link

A new advance by researchers at MIT could make it possible to produce tiny spectrometers that are just as accurate and powerful but could be mass produced using standard chip-making processes. This approach could open up new uses for spectrometry that previously would have been physically and financially impossible. Read MoreExternal linkage
