Edinburgh Instruments launches first FTIR spectrometer

Share this on social media:

Edinburgh Instruments has released its new benchtop FTIR Spectrometer, the IR5. This is the firm’s first Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer, with it already having expertise in instrumentation for Raman, fluorescence, and UV-Vis absorption spectroscopies. 

The IR5 is a modern, high-performance benchtop FTIR instrument that can be configured with a second detector or with Fourier transform photoluminescence (FT-PL) capability.

The FT-PL option transforms the IR5 into a combined absorption and PL spectrometer in the MIR range, suitable for the most demanding research applications.

Its key features include: High sensitivity and spectral resolution; the Fourier transform Photoluminescence upgrade option, with a choice of laser source; the option for a second detector, giving higher sensitivity at selected spectral ranges; simple operation suited to all user levels, from beginner to advanced; no maintenance required with moisture control technology; and the inclusion of modern, powerful and intuitive software designed specifically for the IR5.
