Molecular spectroscopy webinars


Fourier transform infrared, or FTIR, is an infrared spectroscopy technique where IR radiation is passed through a sample. Some of the infrared radiation is absorbed by the sample and some of it is passed through (transmitted). The resulting spectrum represents the molecular absorption and transmission, creating a molecular fingerprint of the sample.

Near-infrared spectroscopy is a form of vibrational spectroscopy utilizing absorption or reflection measurements in the near-infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum. NIR can be very useful in probing bulk materials with little or no sample preparation, and when combined with fiber optic probes NIR can provide continuous on-line process analysis.
