Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is a spectral analysis technique used to identify chemical bonds. It can be used to investigate existing chemistry, track chemical bonds through a process, or in some cases identify materials. Acquisition of FTIR spectra is most typically performed in 2 configurations: Transmission and Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR). Typical samples can be liquids, solids, powders, or even gasses and sample size can be as small as several µl.
The Vertex V80V vacuum FTIR system provides an evacuated optical bench and sample compartment capable of removing the majority of atmospheric noise. This, in combination with high throughput and sensitive low temperature MCT detector, provides a very stable measurement platform that is a very effective combination for measuring samples with low signal and/or samples with peaks lying in the water vapor regions.
Measurement modes include Transmission, ATR, Variable Angle Specular Reflectance, and a heated flow cell. Specifications are as follows:
