Vertex 70 FTIR spectrometer & Hyperion 2000 microscope

Vertex 70 FT-IR spectrometer with Hyperion 2000 microscope

Light source: MIR (Globar)

Spectrometer unit:

Detector: Mid-infrared Photovoltaic MCT D317/BF, liquid N2 cooled

Detector range: 4,800 - 850 cm-1

Beam Splitter: KBr

Interferometer: RocksolidTM (with dual retroreflecting cube corner mirrors)

Extra modul: PMA 50 for polarization modulation measurements

Detector of the PMA modul: photoconductive NB MCT D313/B-A, liquid N2 cooled

Detector range: 10,000 - 750 cm-1


Microscope unit:

Detector: MCT D326 0 25 (SN J-19374), liquid N2 cooled

Stage: motorized x-y stage (75x50)


4x (visual observation)


20x ATR (Attention! Refractive index of the crystal is 4! The sample must have a smaller refractive index.)


The whole FT-IR system has been moved to the Department of Nanobiotechnology (Muthgasse 11, 2. floor).
