Infrared (IR) Microscopy and Micro-FTIR Spectroscopy are other names for Fourier Transform Infrared Microscopy. In essence, it is a potent analytical instrument that combines FTIR and ocular microscopy, and it is mostly employed in the identification and analysis of the smallest samples and surfaces, down to 5 m in size. It provides reliable chemical/material identification as well as the benefit of optical microscopy for the imaging and localisation of small samples (such as particles, fibres, pollutants, inclusions, and surfaces).


Microscopy using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR)

FTIR microscopy is a technology that combines the spatial resolution of microscopy with the chemical identification capabilities of infrared spectroscopy. It enables microscopic investigation of the chemical composition and dispersion of materials. Here’s a quick rundown of FTIR microscopy.Here’s a brief summary of microscopy using FTIR:

  • Microscopy with FTIR: This technique combines microscopy and infrared spectroscopy to examine the chemical composition and distribution of materials at the microscopic level.
  • Microscopic imaging is a high-resolution imaging technique that uses infrared absorption properties to visualise sample structures and distributions.
  • Chemical identification is the process of identifying chemical functional groups in a material in order to gain insight into its molecular composition and structure.
  • Mapping and Imaging: Produces chemical maps and images in order to visualise spatial distribution and detect pollutants or material modifications.
  • Sample Characterization: Using microspectroscopy, analyses a wide range of materials for composition, phase analysis, and real-time monitoring of chemical changes.
