FTIR spectrometer for measuring infrared spectra

Trade name
FTIR spectrometer Tensor II, Bruker
Technical description

The Bruker Tensor II FTIR spectrometer is equipped with:

  • attachment for measurements of Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) with a monolithic diamond crystal enabling measurement in the range of 350-8000 cm-1, adapted to the measurement of liquid samples and solids
  • ATR attachment with a germanium crystal enabling measurements in the range of 600 - 5000 cm-1, adapted to measure liquid and solid samples; germanium crystal is ideal for measuring spectra of carbon structures, especially fullerenes, carbon nanotubes or graphene oxide
  • attachment for transmission measurements with a liquid cuvette, detachable with KRS5 and ZnSe windows,
  • detectors: DLATGS (340-12000 cm-1) and MCT (420-12000 cm-1)
  • the measuring chamber is equipped with a diffuser enabling the chamber to be purged with inert gas
