"This is a high quality tool, despite some initial teething issues that have generally been overcome."
The VERTEX 80 and the VERTEX 80v vacuum FTIR spectrometers are based on the actively aligned UltraScan™ interferometer, which provides PEAK spectral resolution.
The precise linear air bearing scanner and PEAK quality optics guarantees the ultimate sensitivity and stability. The VERTEX 80v is an evacuated optics bench that can eliminate atmospheric moisture absorptions for ultimate sensitivity and stability; enabling demanding experiments such as high resolution, ultra fast rapidscan, step-scan, or UV spectral range measurements.
The VERTEX 80/80v optics design allows PEAK flexibility and at the same time PEAK instrument performance. The unique Bruker Optics DigiTect™ technology prevents external signal disturbance, guarantees PEAK signal-to-noise ratio and allows easy and reproducible detector exchange by the instrument user. The two optional external detector ports accommodate the liquid He dewars of bolometer and/or hot electron detectors. In combination with the external water cooled high power Hg-arc source, the recently rediscovered terahertz spectral range is accessible even with a room temperature operated DTGS-detector.
