Spectrometer Type & Range
   Spectrometer Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Dispersive       Dispersive Raman typically employs visible lasers, a grating, and CCD detectors (silicon array charged coupled detectors) as a means to collect data. The laser acts as a light source irradiating the sample. Most of the radiation will elastically scatter or "reflect off" the sample at the same energy as the incoming laser radiation, a process known as Rayleigh scattering. However, a small amount, approximately one photon out of a million (0.0001%), will scatter from that sample at a wavelength slightly shifted from the original wavelengths. 
   Fourier Transform (FTIR)       FT-IR spectrometers record the interaction of IR radiation with experimental samples, measuring the frequencies at which the sample absorbs the radiation and the intensities of the absorptions. This is a single beam instrument.

Performance Specifications
   Spectral / Wavelength Range:       Wavelength range refers to the dispersion of the grating across the linear array; also expressed as the "size" of the spectra on the array. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Resolution:       Resolution is the width of an analytical peak at half its height expressed in nanometers. It's a measure of the instruments ability to separate two overlapping peaks. At the point of resolution, two peaks of equal height are said to be resolved if you can see a dip between the tops of the two peaks. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Accuracy:       Accuracy is the agreement between a mean measured value and a true or accepted value as quantified by error. Related to determinate errors and quantified by bias. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.

System Configuration
   Optical System:       
   Your choices are...         
   Monochromator       A monochromator is a spectrometer optical system capable of measuring a single wavelength, which can be scanned through a wide wavelength range. A common form of monochromator is the Czerny-Turner design, consisting of fixed entrance and exit slits, fixed focusing mirrors and a rotatable diffraction grating. As the grating rotates, a different wavelength is focused onto the exit slit. The wavelength range of a monochromator varies with the choice of grating, but commonly they can scan from 160 nm to 500 nm or ever wider ranges. The spectral resolution depends on the widths of the slits, the choice of grating and focal length, but commonly can be less than 10 pm for high resolution OES. 
   Filter System       Filter systems may also be referred to as a polarizer. The filter system uses Near Infrared filters mounted on a temperature controlled filter wheel and controlled by a microprocessor. 
   Acousto-Optical Tunable Scanning       Acousto-optical tubable scanning (AOTF) devices, which are usually designed for visible and near IR applications, also overcome the mechanical problems associated with multi-wavelength filter instruments, and likewise, they are based on the use of a single- element detector. 
   Michelson Interferometer       A source of infrared energy illuminates a device called an interferometer. In the interferometer, the infrared energy is split in to two beams, and then optically recombined. In this way the two beams interfere with each other through a constructive / destructive process to produce a complex waveform. This waveform is directed towards the sensor surface of the instrument where it interacts with the molecules of the sample and where the wavelengths are selectively absorbed. 
   Other       Other unlisted optical system.

   Detector Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   MCT       MCT: Mercury Cadmium Tellurium. HgCdTe is a ternary semiconductor compound which exhibits a wavelength cutoff proportional to the alloy composition. The actual detector is composed of a thin layer (10 to 20 µm) of HgCdTe with metalized contact pads defining the active area. Photons with energy greater than the semiconductor band-gap energy excite electrons into the conduction band, thereby increasing the conductivity of the material. 
   DTGS       DTGS: deuterated triglycine sulfate. A very sensitive detector for mid infrared range measurement. Most routine scanning instruments feature the more expensive and more sensitive DTGS detector, which is one or two orders of magnitude more sensitive than lithium tantalate, depending upon implementation. One drawback of the DTGS detector in a process environment is that it stops functioning as a detector at temperatures higher than 41 degrees C; the detector depolarizes above this temperature. 
   DLATGS       DLATGS: deuterated lanthanum triglycine sulfate. Temperature controlled high sensitivity detector for the mid-infrared range. 
   InSb       Indium antimonide detectors are used when detecting in the near infrared range. 
   LiTaO3       Lithium tantalate detectors are used as low-cost thermal sensing devices (including fire alarms) for which the detector element can cost as little as $10. They are also used in filter-based instruments and in low- cost scanning instruments. 
   PbS       Traditional solid state lead salt detectors used when detecting in the near infrared range. 
   PC-CMT       In the long wave spectral region (14.6 to about 7 microns), only photoconductive HgCdTe detectors (PC-CMT) are able to meet the specifications on low noise contribution and electronics bandwidth. 
   PV-CMT       At the shorter wavelengths (7 to 4 microns), photovoltaic HgCdTe detectors (PV-CMT) are the best choice. The detector elements are cooled to about 70 K to reduce their internal noise contribution. 
   Si       Traditional solid state silicon detector. 
   Photoacoustic       The photoacoustic technique is based on energy transfer from a modulated infrared beam into a mechanical vibration. The incident beam is absorbed by the sample which results in a thermal transfer from the sample to a surrounding inert gas envelope. The gas expands to give small pressure fluctuations detected by a sensitive microphone. 
   Other       Other unlisted or unspecified detector types.
