Ultraviolet Visible/ Near Infrared Spectroscopy

Cary 500 UV/Vis/NIR spectrophotometer


UV/Vis is used to analyze inorganic or organic compounds, biologically significant samples, liquids or solids.  This instrument has an accuracy of 0.1 nm in the UV/Vis range and 0.4 in the NIR range.  It has 0.00001 nm resolution, a 0-10 ABS range and the wavelength range is 3300 nm to 175 nm. 



Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy

Thermo Nicolet iS10 FTIR


IR provides information on molecular structure and functional groups.  Samples can be analyzed in liquid or solid form.  The system is controlled with Omnic 8 software.  The spectral resolution is 0.4 cm-1 and the spectral range is 7800 cm-1 to 350 cm-1.
