High Spatial Resolution FT-IR Imaging of Biomedical Tissue Samples Using Existing Objectives



Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) imaging is a well-established analytical method for obtaining spectral and spatial information simultaneously in the micron-size domain. The technique has been applied across many different application areas, from polymer science to biomedical imaging. Over recent years, interest has increased in pushing the diffraction limited spatial resolution performance of FTIR imaging systems, primarily using synchrotron based systems.
