Bruker was founded in 1960 with nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) products. Bruker launched its first ever FT-IR spectrometer, the IFS series, and entered the field of vibrational spectroscopy in 1974. The "Genzel" interferometer and many other unique options available on IFS series instantly set the standard for excellence in FT-IR spectroscopy. Since then, Bruker's vibrational spectroscopy product line has been continuously expanding with instruments suitable for both analytical and research applications.
