FT-IR TENSOR 27 Spectrometer

This spectrometer incorporates state-of-the-art optics for outstanding sensitivity and stability. It ensures easy and reliable analytical work with high sample throughput. The heart of the instrument is a permanently aligned RockSolidTM cube corner interferometer, which is equipped with gold coated optics and has a 30 degree angle of incidence for maximum efficiency and sensitivity. The permanent alignment provides consistent high quality results, less downtime and outstanding stability. The TENSOR 27 FTIR spectrometer has a spectra range of 7500-370 cm-1 with standard KBr beamsplitter and a resolution better than 1 cm-1. The spectrometer is equipped with micro ATR sampling accessory, HYPERION series FT-IR microscope with a multitude of automatic features like artificial intelligence network, automatic accessory recognition and automatic component recognition. The microscope is optimized for analysis of samples with areas up to 260 mm. Typically, a spatial resolution of 8 mm can be achieved in the mid infrared spectral range with the standard objective. The fully integrated OPUS software allows data acquisition, manipulation and evaluation in one intuitive package.

Raman Spectrometer

Online booking

The SENTERRA is a full-featured dual laser Raman spectrometer with confocal microscope system that accommodates multiple excitation wave lengths with the highest possible spatial resolution. The spectrometer incorporates automatic fluorescence rejection (AFR) method for rejecting fluorescence from many samples to produce high quality Raman spectra even on the most demanding samples. The integrated system automatically calibrates to better than 0.1 cm-1 accuracy and precision without the necessity of daily wavelength calibrations. The detector, grating and filters are automatically positioned in seconds. Video images of the sample are saved with the Raman spectra, so that the data can be analyzed quickly and clearly. The spectral resolution is 3 cm-1. Two different lasers can be employed which are 100 mW 785 nm or 20 mW 532 nm laser with corresponding spectral range 785 nm: 100-3500 cm-1 and 532 nm: 80-4500 cm-1. The microscope system is based on the Olympus BX51 optical microscope with trinocular tube and quintuple revolving nosepiece, 20x and 50x metallurgical objectives. The integrated OPUS software provides and easy to use platform that is compatible with stringent validation environments.

Contact Angle Measuring Instrument: OCA 15EC

Online booking

The video-based optical contact angle measuring system, OCA 15EC, is used to characterize the surface free energy of solid materials by measuring the contact angle of a drop of a liquid on the flat surface of the solid. The surface tension of liquids can also be calculated, as well as the work of adhesion between two materials. The instrument provides the sessile drop method, the pendant drop method, and others.
