FTIR microscopy with a focal plane array (FPA) of detectors enables routine chemical imaging on individual cells in only a few minutes. The brilliance of synchrotron radiation (SR) IR sources may enhance the signal obtained from such small biosamples containing small amounts of organic matter. We investigated individual cells obtained from a cell culture(More)
Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) imaging has been used to investigate brain tumor angiogenesis using a mice solid tumor model and bare-gold (∅ 25 nm) or BaSO(4) (∅ 500 nm) nanoparticles (NP) injected into blood vasculature. FTIR images of 20-μm-thick tissue sections were used for chemical histology of healthy and tumor areas. Distribution of BaSO(4)-NP(More)
Electrons with a linear energy/momentum dispersion are called massless Dirac electrons and represent the low-energy excitations in exotic materials such as graphene and topological insulators. Dirac electrons are characterized by notable properties such as a high mobility, a tunable density and, in topological insulators, a protection against backscattering(More)
