Chemical imaging is the analytical capability to create a visual image of the chemical and physical material properties of the objects.

The image above was produced with a Specim LWIR-C thermal infrared hyperspectral imager. The image shows an outdoor scan in winter conditions, ambient temperature -10 C. The infrared Spectrum of the different objects have clearly distinctive characteristics. Therefore, for example, the traces of the propellant gas can be measured and identified.
