Overview

FT-IR for Everyone, Everywhere

For teachers and students of spectroscopy in academia, Spectrum Two helps develop an understanding of FT-IR sampling techniques and spectral analysis. The Educational Resource Pack facilitates the teaching of traditional synthetic chemistry analysis as well as more modern applications, such as recycling. This analysis system includes:

  • FT-IR Educational Resource Pack
  • Spectrum Two Instrument
  • Spectrum 10 Software

FT-IR Educational Resource Pack

The FT-IR Educational Resource Pack contains two CDs designed for use in the teaching of FT-IR Spectroscopy to students and new users of IR instruments. This kit contains 15 experiments that can be used as part of a curriculum or adapted to meet the individual needs of your institution. The experiments are designed to:

  • Develop skills in sample preparation.
  • Generate an understanding of the most appropriate sampling technique to use for a variety of sample types.
  • Demonstrate the value of using FT-IR spectroscopy in identification and verification of materials.

Spectrum Two Instrument

The Spectrum Two spectrometer with KBr optics and a standard, high-performance room temperature LiTaO3 (lithium tantalate) detector delivers a spectral scan range of 8,300 – 350 cm-1 whilst offering 0.5 cm-1 resolution and 9,300:1 peak-peak signal-to-noise ratio for a 5 second scan in a sleek, compact design.

Key features that allow for consistent performance of this system include:

  • Dynascan interferometer – Fixed mirror-pair interferometer design does not require dynamic alignment to compensate for errors.
  • OpticsGuard technology – Unique humidity shield design protects Spectrum Two from environmental effects, allowing it to be used in more challenging conditions. Our long-life desiccant ensures maximum instrument uptime, regardless of where your analysis takes place.
  • Atmospheric Vapor Compensation (AVC) – Features an advanced digital filtering algorithm designed to compensate for CO2 and H2O absorptions in real time removing the need for instrument purging.
  • Sigma-Delta Conversion: The use of Sigma-Delta converters in the digitization of the FT-IR interferogram improves the dynamic range, reduces spectral artifacts, and increases ordinate linearity to provide accurate, reproducible results.

Spectrum 10 Software

Included in this system is the Spectrum 10 software, which enables you to control the instrument and to manipulate the spectra that you collect. The spectrometers can operate in ratio, single-beam, or interferogram mode.

From material and contaminant identification to quantitative analysis, the comprehensive Spectrum 10 software suite allows you to focus on what matters most – results. Designed for busy academic laboratories, this comprehensive FT-IR software package facilitates data collection, processing, results generation, basic and advanced data manipulation, spectral calculations, COMPARE spectral comparison, PLS/PCR/Beer’s Law predictions, Beer’s Law Quant method development, spectral search with starter libraries, and built-in online tutorials. The software enables users without scientific training to generate infrared spectra from a sample and validate them against reference spectra in minutes, or even seconds.
