Hyperspectral imaging

Spectro-microscopy (Electronic & Chemical & Magnetic Characterization)

Hyperspectral imaging enables the measurement of the surface reflectivity from a single point, across a mapping area. It can be used to characterize materials with spatial variability like pigments on painted surfaces, or materials that have suffered stresses like temperature, which alter their chemical composition.

The infrastructure has the possibility to implement quantitative detection and mapping of chemical characteristics through two different approaches: firstly that of reflection hyperspectral imaging; and second that of Raman hyperspectral imaging. The reflection mode is achieved using the Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectromicroscopy system, while the second through the Raman Spectromicroscopy system.
