IR Ready for Any Challenge
Specifically designed for highest ordinate accuracy in the mid-IR region, Frontier Optica is a unique FT-IR spectrometer designed for optical filter, glass and semiconductor measurements which require improved levels of ordinate accuracy and reproducibility. Over the 5000-400 cm-1 range, the Frontier Optica offers radically improved passband accuracy and stopband transmission accuracy to 6000 cm-1.
The Frontier Optica FT-IR spectrometer features:
An External Beam Pack can be configured to allow for automatic beam path switching for use with external accessories such as the Spotlight™ microscope, NIRA accessory, and the General Purpose Optical Bench.
Setting the Standard
The Frontier is loaded with a range of advanced innovations designed to provide optimal performance from the configuration you choose.
Superior Performance & Accuracy
The Frontier Optica is designed for optical measurements in demanding applications requiring the highest levels of ordinate accuracy. The Optica is the first FT-IR spectrometer designed specifically to meet the demands of the optical filters, high refractive index materials, and specialty glass coatings industries. The ordinate accuracy on the Frontier Optica is better than ± 0.25%T at 47%T, and better than 0.01%T at 0%T.
The Frontier Optica is primarily suited to function with a variety of sampling accessories to increase the versatility of the instrument, including the HATR, NIRA, UATR, Polarization Kit, and Specular Reflectance Accessory.
The Spectrum 10 software suite drives the Frontier Optica system and can support advanced FT-IR analysis in research and industrial laboratories, always providing optimal results. The software supplied with your instrument 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.

The use of IR imaging expands the measurement possibilities by giving information about the individual types of materials present in the collected particles. The information from the IR imaging experiment is not only qualitative (i.e. identification of the particulates), but can also be calibrated to give quantitative information on the components present. The IR imaging measurement will take only five minutes, whereas Ion Chromatography requires solvent extraction of the particulates and would take around 20-25 minutes per sample
In the development of the Frontier™Optica™, PerkinElmer has addressed thewell known sources of error in themeasurement of challenging opticalmaterials with standard FT-IR instruments.The resulting improved performance overthe previous standard of the optical industryis demonstrated by both the verificationcarried out internally, and also by thatcarried out by an external test laboratory.

Choose the PerkinElmer Frontier™ range of near-, mid- and far-IR Fourier Transform spectrometers for superior spectroscopic performance in demanding applications. Powerful and adaptable, the Frontier meets all your current analysis needs and can be expanded as your research goals evolve. And with automated range switching, mid- near- or far-IR techniques are available at your fingertips. An exceptional signal-to-noise ratio and photometric performance assures optimal spectral performance to ensure best-in-class sensitivity. This configurable platform provides dependable, consistent and trouble-free operation through years of service.
Frontier™ is PerkinElmer’s most powerful, adaptable IR solution yet, specially developed to offer superior performance in demanding applications.
There are several well known sources of error in standard FT-IR instruments that lead tospectral artifacts and inaccurate transmittance values for such samples1. These have beenaddressed in the Frontier Optica. Interreflections involving the source, interferometer, sampleand detector have all been eliminated. The use of delta-sigma analog-to-digital conversionavoids the need for gain switching and ensures excellent linearity.
