FTIR-PM-IRRAS spectrometer

Description of the instrument

Infrared Reflection Absorption Spectroscopy (IRRAS) is an analytical technique for characterizing adsorbed molecules or thin layers on metallic surfaces. In IRRAS experiments, the sample is studied with an optical geometry in reflection under grazing incidence. The sensitivity of this method is also improved by using the polarization modulation (PM) technique.

Thanks to its specular reflection module with variable angle VEEAX III (PIKE Technologies), this spectrometer can also perform FTIR measurements at variable grazing angles (Si crystal). This module is also equipped with an electrochemical cell (ATR ZnSe, Ge and Si crystals) which makes it possible to carry out measurements of in-situ surface modifications.

Finally, this spectrometer, thanks to its Smart ITX module, also makes it possible to perform FTIR-ATR (diamond crystal) type measurements.
