Algorithms for spectroscopic data

Spectroscopic imaging methods have many applications in both environmental science and medicine. We create and improve algorithms and software for correcting and analysing spectroscopic data. In particular, we work with 2D images from different techniques in the infrared part of the spectrum.

Our research group develops methods for Fourier transformed infrared (FTIR) absorption spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy, for example to correct the effects of unwanted scattering and absorption. We also work with correcting and analysing spectra from optical photothermal infrared spectroscopy (O-PTIR), a new and powerful technique used at CEC. Examples of environmental applications include soil–microbe interactions and microplastics identification. Examples of the medical applications include diagnosis and classification of skin cancers and the study of neurodegenerative diseases.

The group is part of COSHE, the Computational Science for Health and Environment theme at CEC.

Spectroscopic imaging support is available from CIPA, the imaging processing and analysis infrastructure at Lund University. Spectroscopy users who want assistance or advice concerning data processing, analysis and software are encouraged to get in touch to access support through CIPA.
