Introduction: Near and mid infrared spectroscopy and microscopic imaging are emphasized part of our analytical research activities and are applied almost all projects in our basic and applied (industrial) research.

The following links give examples and an overview of the results of our NIR group. Our research projects are supported by international projects (EU framework programmes – e.g. EU FP 5 STAFANIR, EU FP6 HEALTHGRAIN, DiOGenes, MoniQA, EUF P7 CHANCE –; bilateral S&T agreements), national founds (e.g. Hungarian Scientific Research Fund) and by agricultural, food, pharmaceutical and other related industries.
