Instrumental and Sampling Factors in Infrared Microspectroscopy


Infrared microspectroscopy is an emerging technical field of great promise. As with all new fields, there are experimental techniques and applications specifically related to this field. This paper discusses some general features and experimental techniques developed for use with a commercial infrared microspectrometer as applied to fiber identification. It then discusses a specially constructed infrared microscope which may be utilized with specialized accessories, diamond anvil cells, to generally and easily obtain infrared spectra of specimens which are initially too thick.
