Vibrational Circular Dichroism Infrared Spectroscopic Imaging Microscope

Dr. Bhargava has developed a new method and device for imaging with a discrete frequency infrared spectroscopic microscope. Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) is useful for quantifying chirality, and this method allows for VCD imaging and chirality mapping of solid samples. VCD imaging measurements can examine small and localized changes in tissue and assist in quantization and separation of chirality.
