Spectroscopy

Various types of spectroscopic analysis are performed using Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) and Raman spectrometers.  Both instruments are coupled to microscopes for microspectroscopic investigations. The FTIR is also capable of attenuated total reflectance (ATR) analysis for probing sample surfaces and is equipped with a photoacoustic detector (PAD) for polymeric, metallic and ceramic materials.  The Raman instrument is equipped with a fiber-optic probe which can be used for in-situ sample analysis and has been applied to smart processing of materials.
