Algorithms for spectroscopic data
We develop new and improved algorithms to correct and analyse spectroscopic data. In particular, we work with two-dimensional images from different techniques in the infrared part of the spectrum.
Methods are developed for Fourier transformed infrared absorption spectroscopy (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopy, for example to correct the effects of unwanted scattering and absorption. We also work on optical photothermal infrared spectroscopy (O-PTIR), a new and powerful technique used at CEC.
Spectroscopic imaging methods have many applications in the environmental field but also in medicine, such as the diagnosis of skin cancer and the study of neurodegenerative diseases. The practical application of these methods is facilitated by CIPA, the university's infrastructure for user support in image processing. Spectroscopy users who want support with data processing, analysis and open software are encouraged to get in touch to access support through CIPA.
