Edinburgh Instruments has released its new benchtop FT-IR spectrometer, the IR5, designed and manufactured at their global headquarters in Scotland. The IR5 is the first Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer from Edinburgh Instruments. The IR5 is a modern, high-performance benchtop FT-IR instrument which can be configured with a second detector or with Fourier Transform Photoluminescence (FT-PL) capability. The FT-PL option transforms the IR5 into a combined absorption and PL spectrometer in the MIR range, suitable for the most demanding research applications.
It has high sensitivity and spectral resolution, the Fourier Transform Photoluminescence upgrade with a choice of laser source and the option for a second detector giving higher sensitivity at selected spectral ranges. Simple operation makes it suitable for all user levels, from beginner to advanced, no maintenance is acrequired with moisture control technology and it runs on modern, powerful and intuitive MiracleTM software designed specifically for the IR5.
