Quantitative chemically-specific imaging infrastructure for material and life sciences

The qCSI consortium is a world-class infrastructure for advanced vibrational spectroscopic imaging that serves users in Finland, the Nordic countries and beyond. The instruments are located at the Universities of Helsinki (multimodal coherent Raman microscopy), and Jyväskylä (near-field optical microscopy) while the online spectral processing and data analysis platform is developed and based at the Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology. The infrastructure is being used for imaging and spectral analysis in diverse material and life sciences.
