Composition of inhomogeneous materials by chemical imaging using techniques including Raman, FTIR, SEM and more
Expertise in chemical imaging of inhomogeneous materials is necessary for pharmaceutical composition, packaging materials, personal care products and other samples, for expert insight into active ingredients, investigation of contamination issues, and to further product development.
While conventional optical and electron microscopy methods provide a picture of the physical structure of a material, chemical imaging can produce a picture where every point of the image has an associated data set - such as an infrared spectrum - which can be interrogated to display the variation in chemical structure across a surface or within a material.
Chemical imaging methods study and visualize inhomogeneous structures, with applications in many fields, including:
