FTIR: Module 403-X


Interspec 403-X is an educational Fourier transform infrared (FTIR)
modular spectrometer for teaching spectroscopy in the science and
university labs to promote the use of infrared spectroscopy as a generalpurpose,
broad-based measurement tool, and to enable the use of state-ofthe-
art FTIR technology for teaching and science purposes. With the
wavenumber range from 7000 to 400 cm-1and spectral resolution of 1 cm-1,
the interferometer module with detector system, power supply and data
acquisition system forms an open architecture sample compartment modular
spectrometer capable to use any FTIR accessory available in the market. It
makes the instrument very flexible for different kind of applications in
science and teaching lab. The interferometer module has a transparent
plastic cover to allow visual access to all of it’s major parts, 38-mm
collimated output beam, a multicoated KBr beamsplitter, a high-intensity
ceramic IR source and USB interface. FTIR spectroscopic software
Interspec for Windows is a program for running the spectrometer and for
complete handling of measured infrared data.
