Fourier Transformation Infrared Spectrometer

Principle:
A molecule that is exposed to infrared rays absorbs infrared energy at frequencies which are characteristic to that molecule. During FTIR analysis, a spot on the specimen is subjected to a modulated IR beam. The specimen's transmittance and reflectance of the infrared rays at different frequencies is translated into an IR absorption plot consisting of reverse peaks. The resulting FTIR spectral pattern is then analyzed and matched with known signatures of identified materials in the FTIR library.

Applications:

  • Quality Control.
  • Composition determination of a Petroleum samples and others.
  • Polymer characterization.


Specifications:

  • Liquid or solid samples.
  • Thick or strongly absorb samples.
  • No calibration.
  • Wide spectrum beam.
  • Fast-scan within seconds.
