Nicolet iS20 Attenuated Total Reflection Infra Red

The Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iS10 is a FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy) Spectrometer that allows the determination of unidentified contaminants, conduct failure analysis, allowing precisely analyze mixtures, thanks to the spectral power of the Thermo Scientific™ LightDrive™ Optical Engine integrated. The FTIR is able to discern multi-component samples: the advanced LightDrive optical engine technology delivers higher spectral resolution (better than 0.25 cm-1) and single-to-noise ratios (50 000:1) to help identify possible contaminants or characterize defects present in small quantities. Its performance can be validated through an integrated validation wheel with Shott NG-11 glass and NIST traceable, serialized polystyrene film.

The FTIR (dimensions 570 x 550 x 250 mm) is endowed with LightDrive Optical Engine components (source, laser, interferometer and detector) and a solid-state, temperature-controlled diode laser that with its enhanced long-lifetime and temperature-stabilized design guarantees accurate and precise data acquisitions.
