PerkinElmer has introduced the Spectrum 100 Optica, the only commercially available Fournier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer developed specifically for the optical filters and coatings industry. The Spectrum 100 Optica features optical modification, advanced signal processing and special detector considerations all designed to address the major instrument problems associated with FT-IR measurement of optical materials.
Manufacturers of optical filters and specialty coatings can use the Spectrum 100 Optica to validate the performance specifications of these materials to block or transmit IR radiation. This validation is critical in both quality assurance and research and development of filters and coatings. The Spectrum 100 Optica can also be used by academic researchers to study the transmission properties of high refractive index materials.
