We combine a thermal light source with a conventional thermal infrared camera, alternating current (AC) detection methods, and chemical filtering of the infrared (IR) light to generate several imaging modalities in a simple manner. We demonstrate that digital lock-in amplifier techniques can increase the chemical contrast in an active thermal infrared image using both reflectance and thermal re-emission. We show this method is useful for visualizing thin coatings on fabrics that are invisible to the eye. We also take advantage of a "like-detects-like" chemical filtering approach to chemical selectivity for the purpose of chemical identification using a broadband thermal detector.
