Agilent’s 8700 Laser Direct Infrared (LDIR) chemical imaging system employs a single-element electrically cooled detector to eliminate laser coherence artefacts from images and spectra.

Reminiscent of James Bond Film opening

Plan S may sound like something from a James Bond film, but it actually is a new initiative to ensure that results from (European) funding is published in fully Open Access Journals by 2020.
