Material Analysis by Infrared Microimaging
During the past few years, infrared microspectroscopy has progressed from an exotic and difficult technique to a routine method of analysis. This is due to the merger of highly sensitive Fourier transform infrared spectrometers with precision infrared and optical microscopes. Infrared microspectroscopy is now a widely used technique in the fields of failure analysis, forensic chemistry and polymer science. Typically, an experiment would involve obtaining a single infrared spectrum of a trace contaminate or investigation of a single polymer defect.
