FTIR Imaging is a new technique that that provides new insight into the chemical composition of a wide variety of materials.


SUMMARY

Fourier Transform Infrared Chemical Imaging is a new technique that that provides wavelength-specific, high resolution infrared images and the underlying spectral data used to determine chemical differences in a sample. Using this technique, chemical changes that could not be visualized previously are highlighted in the sample, providing a much richer data set to solve problems involving polymers, electronics, biological and material sciences. This case study illustrates the uses in a number of industries.
