For the Cary 4000, 5000, and 6000i instruments
The Praying Mantis Diffuse Reflectance Accessory is useful for measuring the diffuse reflectance of powders, pastes, and liquids that would normally be dissolved in a solvent with inherently high absorbance. Using two large hemispherical mirrors,it collects the light reflected from the crystalline sample, enabling the full wavelength range of the Cary instrument used. The small sample requirement as small as 3 mm enables researchers developing new compounds to perform precise analyses. The Praying Mantis is ideal for material science analysis in academic and government research laboratories, as well as inorganic chemistry, and physics laboratories.
