Application eBook: FTIR spectroscopy: Techniques & technologies driving innovation
9 July 2020

Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is used to probe the molecular vibrations of a sample generating a chemical fingerprint from the molecules present within the beam of light.  The technique has been employed in numerous ways across multiple fields, but whatever the aim of the experiment, an accessory is required to contain the matter under study and direct the light onto it.

For the past 50 years, Specac’s products have been at the forefront of scientific endeavor, driving innovation and answering critical questions across a range of scientific fields.  In this application eBook, we review the literature for some of its most advanced products and explore the cutting-edge research undertaken by its customers, including sections on:
