Wetzel and LeVine describe a new analytical tool that uses infrared radiation and a combination of microscopy and spectroscopy to quantify the chemical composition of microscopic samples. They discuss the many applications of FT-IR microspectroscopy in forensics, materials science, art restoration and bi-ology and how future fine-tuning of the methodology will broaden the number of applications.
