Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy (FTIR)

What is FTIR?

Named for the use of the Fourier transform mathematical process, FTIR converts raw data into an infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of a solid, liquid or gas.

It is non-destructive and delivers fast, on-site results thanks to advanced handheld technology.

FTIR spectrometers simultaneously collect high spectral resolution data over a wide spectral range. There are benefits over using a dispersive spectrometer which measures intensity over a narrow range of wavelengths at a time.

Applications for FTIR

  • Polymers and Surface Coatings
  • Mineral Identification
  • Safety Detection of Degradation
  • Soil Science
  • Historical Artifacts
  • Quality Control
