IPERION HSIntegrating Platforms for the European Research Infrastructure ON Heritage Science
Technique: Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy with attenuated total reflectance, transmission, microscopy and imaging applications (FTIR-ATR)

FT-IR with ATR

Infrared spectroscopy bench top (Perkin Elmer Frontier) with coupled microscope (Spotlight 200) offering a wide range of applications, such as Germanium imaging crystal, ATR Golden Gate diamond crystal, ATR drop down germanium crystal, diamond compression cell, KBr pellet press, hot stage.

Potential Results

Infrared spectra and maps with up to 5 µm resolution, where every pixel is a spectrum and a priciple component analysis image shows where differences in molecular compositions exist wihin the sample.
