FTIR Spectroscopy

Shimadzu has released a variety of FTIR systems boasting high resolution and high sensitivity and a variety of associated instruments, such as an infrared microscope unit, to facilitate automation. These are utilized in a wide range of structural analysis or non-destructive measurement applications, such as to qualify the location of defects on IC chips and other small parts in electronics, electrical, and semiconductor industries, to qualify pharmaceuticals based on the Japanese Pharmacopoeia, to identify vehicles from paint fragments left at crime scenes, or to verify starting materials on beads as a pre-synthesis study in combinatorial chemistry.
