Recent progress in analytical terahertz (THz) spectroscopy is reviewed with illustrative examples showing that it is an effective method for detecting and identifying intermolecular interactions in chemical compounds, such as hydrogen bonds. The unique and characteristic properties of THz waves, their significance to both science and industry, and the bases(More)
Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter and is of particular interest in light of current models of memory and learning. The paper describes the first in situ detection of glutamate in single nerve terminals (synaptosomes), which is achieved by using laser trapping Raman spectroscopy. The near-infrared laser light captures a single synaptosome(More)
