About this E-Book: nano-FTIR spectroscopy and imaging have been successfully applied for material identification & mapping with nanometer precision using material-specific infrared spectroscopic signatures. This E-Book summarizes applications of nanoscale investigation of inorganic materials in energy-storage, mineralogy, archaeology and corrosion sciences.

Studies covered in this E-Book:
  • Nanoscale chemical analysis of extraterrestrial star-dust,
  • Direct observation of delithiation in Li-ion battery electrode,
  • Real-space mapping of the insulator-to-metal transition,
  • Investigation of surface corrosion & protection with organic inhibitors.
