Scan of Blue Mussel Shell (image) DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Caption A spectral-linescan of a blue mussel shell, which transitions from calcite to aragonite, illustrates the spatial resolution and spectroscopic range capabilities of the SINS technique. The image shows two simultaneously acquired vibrational modes across the transition region.
