Abstract

NIRS is a spectroscopic method that propagates near-infrared waves through objects and measures the absorbance by diffuse reflection, users could analyze the composition information of objects based on that. The technology has fast speed and non-destructive analysis features with relatively simple requirements for operators, making it very friendly to non-expert users. Traditional NIRS scanners used in research laboratories are large and expensive, while recently more and more affordable smaller NIRS scanners are appearing, which attract more end-users to buy and use. Besides, pairing the technology with mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) could get rid of other professional operatio..
