About Spectral Libraries
- This library contains FT-IR microscope transmission spectra of synthetic fibers from the Collaborative Testing Services' Reference Collection of Synthetic Fibers. It consists of spectra obtained from a collaborative project between Thermo Fisher Scientific and Dr. Jay A. Siegel and his co-workers in the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University.
- All spectra were measured from pressed samples of the fibers using a Thermo Scientific FT-IR spectrometer and microscope system.
- Contains 76 spectra
- Data format: Deresolved
Spectral library searching has long been an extraordinarily valuable tool in the analytical chemist's toolbox. Our extensive series of spectral libraries includes information specific to application, industry or spectral technique.
Spectral library searching based on digital matching of spectral signatures is a very effective way of performing qualitative identification of compounds. Because FT-IR and Raman spectroscopic signatures are based on molecular functional groups, even if the exact compound is not present in the libraries, the list of matching compounds from a spectral library search can often lead to identification, or at least classification, of the material.
Thermo Scientific libraries span applications for Hazmat, Forensics, Food, Polymers and Organic Chemistry.
