Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


We have compared Raman microscopy with the two main types of IR microscopy (Transmission, Attenuated Total Reflection) on five samples representing the typical areas of application, namely a packaging foil (polymers), a cigarette filter (particles), a paracetamol tablet (pharmaceuticals), a coated wood (biological materials) and a high-quality paper (organic-inorganic composite). Our goal is to give practical guidelines for the best choice of technique for any given application as well as highlight possible synergies from using more than one technique on the same sample.
