Project description
The qCSI consortium will establish two new open-access vibrational spectroscopic imaging instruments: fast multiplex coherent Raman and near-field infrared, and integrate them with an advanced spectral data processing and analysis platform. The imaging infrastructure will be used for various types of applications in the material and life sciences, involving pharmaceuticals, nanomaterials, foods, cells and tissues. The qCSI infrastructure will open up completely new avenues of research for advanced chemical imaging in Finland.
