Raman micro-spectroscopy is a powerful tool to identify the chemical nature of organic and inorganic materials with spatially down to about 1 μm chemical images show the distribution of individual components within heterogeneous materials.

Applications of the Oxford OptistatDry Cryostat with the Vertex Series of FT-IR Research Systems

October 12, 2016

Bruker Corporation and Oxford Instruments announce the full integration of Oxford’s new OptistatDry cryostat with Bruker’s Vertex series of FTIR spectrometers. The Oxford OptistatDry cryostat can be utilized for characterizing materials without the use of liquid helium.

Failure Analysis of Packaging Materials

February 01, 2016

The LUMOS FT-IR microscope is an all-in-one solution with an integrated spectrometer, a high degree of automation, and a dedicated user interface. The innovative motorized attenuated total reflectance (ATR) crystal allows performing the complete measurement procedure fully automated including background and sample measurements. The dedicated OPUS software Wizard guides the user through the whole measurement procedure. For identification of unknown compounds, spectrum search and mixture analysis are applied using the functionality of the OPUS/SEARCH package. Chemical images of the spectral data are generated from univariate and multivariate analysis results.
