irt-7000-microscope

FTIR Linear Array Imaging Microscope

The IRT-7000  is a very fast FTIR Linear Array Imaging Microscope that can be interfaced with a FT/IR-6000 Series spectrometer, offering the most advanced microscopy and imaging system. The 16 element MCT offers faster response with excellent signal to noise and wider wavelength range than a focal plane array detector. The data processing is done using fast on-board computing so that there is no delay in data being delivered to the imaging software. This make this linear array microscope very fast and accurate.

System Description

The IRT-7000 includes up to two detectors as standard; a 16-channel linear array detector for infrared sample imaging and a single-point MCT detector. The combination of the standard automatic sample stage and IQ Mapping offers high-speed mapping analyses over a very large sample area, multi-area ATR mapping, and IR imaging with spatial resolution close to the diffraction limit with excellent sensitivity in a short time. In combination with the FT/IR-6000 with Rapid Scan or Step Scan options, this system offers advanced dynamic imaging as well as time-resolved measurements. For multivariate analysis, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is included as standard.

The IRT-7100 fully automated FT-IR microscope includes a standard mid-band MCT detector, with an option to simultaneously install up to two detectors. It is easily field-upgradable to an IR imaging system by adding an optional linear array detector. The standard automatic sample stage provides wide area mapping and multi-ATR mapping by combining the "IQ Mapping" function with the XYZ auto-stage.

Spectra Manager Imaging Suite – Micro Analysis Measurement Program

Spectra Manager™ provides automatic functions and simplified operation to minimize manual operation. Measurement conditions, microscope sample monitoring/control and measurement results can be viewed on a single screen. The microscope control  interface includes various types of measurements such as single and multi-point, mapping, and linear array measurements using a single mouse-click for mode selection. Real time monitoring of the spectrum and a calculated chemical image can be specified during the mapping measurement.

 

Innovative ATR Mapping

The "Clear-View" ATR objectives enable a simultaneous sample view even during ATR data collection after the ATR crystal element contacts the sample. The IQ Mapping function enables automated multi-point mapping, line mapping, grid mapping and IR Imaging analyses of a microscopic area with a manual sample stage and a single element detector.

IQ Mapping coupled with a "Clear-View" ATR objective allows ATR mapping and ATR Imaging of any sample in contact with the ATR objective without moving the sample stage or ATR objective, while observing the entire area of the sample that is in contact with the crystal element. This function provides high-speed and cross-contaminant free measurements of a small sampling area.

Full-vacuum System

For FT-IR measurement, absorption peaks due to atmospheric water vapor and CO2 can make it difficult to obtain high quality sample spectra. The most effective solution to this problem is the measurement of samples in vacuum. As a factory option, a vacuum type FT-IR microscope system can be provided.
