Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry

The Department recently purchased a new Thermo-Nicolet iS10 Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer. This is a research-grade spectrometer with 0.5 cm-1 resolution, and switchable standard transmission and Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) accessories. It is used for both research and support of the teaching laboratories. The ATR accessory is particularly convenient for analysis of both liquid and solid samples. The transmission accessory handles all standard sample holders for solid, liquid, and gas samples. The spectrometer is capable of interfacing with IR microscopes, thermal analysis (TGA/DSC) and gas chromatographs with appropriate accessory upgrades. The FT-IR is managed by Dr. Fitch.
