Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy (FTIR)
What is FTIR?
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is named for the use of a Fourier transform (a mathematical process) to convert raw data into an infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of a solid, liquid or gas. It is non-destructive and delivers fast, on-site results thanks to advanced handheld technology.
FTIR spectrometers simultaneously collect high spectral resolution data over a wide spectral range. There are benefits over using a dispersive spectrometer which measures intensity over a narrow range of wavelengths at a time.
