PTIR eliminates several longstanding limitations of IR microscopy, enabling submicron IR spectroscopy in a non-contact measurement, minimizing sample preparation, and producing spectra with no band shape distortions due to scattering effects.
The IR spectroscopy is widely applied to clarify the interactions between CDs and guest molecules [14].
Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, Anasys Instruments specialises in photothermal IR spectroscopy from the nanoscale to the sub-micron and macro scales.
Bruker said that Anasys Instruments is the world leader in photothermal IR spectroscopy from the nanoscale to the sub-micron and macro scales.
IR Spectroscopy. The spectroscopic characteristics were determined on the 21st day of adipogenic differentiation of MSCs.

IR spectroscopy as a quantitative and predictive analysis method of phenol-formaldehyde resol resins.
Contributions address a variety of sustainability issues at a number of levels, beginning with a paper on the feasibility of increased global sustainability and continuing on to papers discussing renewable energy policies, data processing technologies, IR spectroscopy for soil mapping, satellite monitoring and mapping, greenhouse gas emissions evaluation, conservation measures with regard to camels, RFID for tracking food safety, smartphone apps for following patients with infectious disease, and a obio-territoryo approach to sustainability planning.
The techniques used to characterize and identify dirt include optical, infrared, and electron microscopy and many analytical methods, particularly IR spectroscopy. Since dirt that is covered with paint is difficult to see, much less identify, cross sectioning of the panel or part often is necessary to allow a good view of the material (see Figure 2).
IR spectroscopy confirmed that both sections of the composite were type laAB diamond, although tests did not reveal whether they were natural, treated or synthetic.
