Abstract

From the Introduction: We compared several methods of infrared micro spectroscopy using an FT-IR microscope and workbench. This is part of a project to assemble a database of infrared and optical spectra from mineral separates from meteorites, for comparison with astronomical data. Since we usually have to work with small amounts of material (original grain sizes often <50 m), special sample preparation and analytical procedures
have to be applied.
