FT-IR Microscopy with High Spatial Resolution
December 01, 2016
Advances in spatial resolution for Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) imaging historically have involved the use of a synchrotron source, but new optics have been developed that yield better spectral quality and spatial resolution than are provided by existing synchrotron sources. Kathleen Gough, Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Manitoba, has been working with her group to conduct diagnostic tissue imaging with the new thermal source FT-IR system. She recently spoke to us about these efforts.
