The Spotlight is a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer fitted with with a microscope and attenuated total reflectance (ATR) accessories.
- Automated XYZ sample stage to enable chemical imaging using reflected or transmitted light with a maximum spatial resolution of 6.25 micron.
- Universal ATR enables fast analysis of thin films, opaque solids and powders.
- An ATR imaging crystal is available for fast imaging at 1.56 micron spatial resolution - ideal for biological samples, as interference from water is significantly reduced.
- Harrick Grazing Angle ATR accessory enables analysis of thin films.
Typical samples include organic powders and liquids and films, biological sections, minerals and polymers. See below for sampling options.
