  • FTIR Spectroscopy

    Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy bases its functionality on the principle that almost all molecules absorb infrared light. Only the monatomic (He, Ne, Ar, etc) and homopolar diatomic (H2, N2, O2, etc) molecules do not absorb infrared light. Molecules only absorb infrared light at those frequencies where the infrared light affects the dipolar moment of the molecule. In a molecule, ...

  • Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy using a handheld FTIR

    As has been previously discussed (1), FTIR spectroscopy is emerging as a technique that can be effectively used for applications and/or in locations that heretofore would be considered too demanding. The development of portable FTIRs, and more recently handheld FTIRs, is significant because it enables this powerful analytical technique to solve problems for a whole range of new applications, both ...


  • Exoscan FTIR instrument system can easily be used in the lab or taken to the field for routine analysis.

    Infrared spectroscopy has long been recognized as a selective and sensitive technique for analysis and characterization of surfaces. From material identification to quantitative analysis, infrared analyses can establish if a surface is composed of the correct material, has the proper coating thickness, is free of contaminants, is properly cured, or has the correct properties for the next step in ...


  • IRGAS XFlo: process gas FTIR system for flange mounted applications

    Introduction When doing process tool or exhaust abatement tool installations, it is desirable to monitor the exhaust gases as a means of controlling or setting up the tool 1, 2. FTIR, with its rapid analysis speed, high sensitivity, and ease of use, offers one means of monitoring such systems at the time of installation and during the working life of the tool. Often, these applications ...

  • Optical couplers: key hardware for high quality FTIR spectroscopy

    Description Optical couplers are used to take the light coming from the source of a FTIR and route it through the sampling accessory and into the FTIR detector. This is an essential process in the effective use of the FTIR spectrometer. Therefore, optical couplers play an essential role in the proper use and maintenance of a FTIR system. Recognizing the importance of optical couplers ...

  • Comparing TGA, FTIR and fixed filter infrared analyzers for measuring soot levels in in-service lubricants

    Measuring soot in diesel engine oil has become more important as soot levels get higher due to exhaust gas recirculation. As soot isone of the key indicators for the condition of the oil, diesel engine maintenance programs performing regular soot checks can realize cost savings by extending drain periods and reducing used oil disposal. TGA (Thermal Gravimetric Analysis) is the traditional method ...
