The analysis of the microscopic distribution of compounds can help solving various analytical problems, many of which are relevant to safety and security. Ideally, the identification of compounds should be accomplished in a precise and quick way and leave the compounds undamaged. Infrared and Raman spectroscopy are complementary methods that are based on the distinct interactions of molecules with visible or infrared light.
In the course of the project a coupled microscopic-spectroscopic platform was set up that allows for the analysis of spatially resolved dispersive and FT-Raman spectra, as well as FT IR spectra and IR microscopy. The ability to detect the distribution of smallest and particle-bound analytes will support and promote existing and novel R&D activities of several research groups.
