In this chapter, the main techniques for producing and characterizing cosmic dust analogues in the laboratory will be discussed. It will be shown how optical data of astronomically relevant materials can be measured and how such data can be applied to interpret astronomical spectra. The identification of minerals in space from infrared spectroscopy will be summarized. © 2010 Springer Berlin Heidelberg.
