Book Description

This work represents a sound introduction to the fundamental principles of infrared microspectroscopy (IMS). It describes how IMS is used to solve specific microanalytical problems in a variety of disciplines, including forensic analysis, art conservation, and geological, pharmaceutical and electronics research. The book discusses when and how to use special techniques such as line scanning, 3-dimensional imaging and attenuated total reflection and grazing-angle spectroscopy.
