Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer - Thermo Nicolet iS10 FTIR

FTIR is used to obtain an absorption or transmission spectrum of a solid or liquid. An FTIR spectrometer simultaneously collects data over a wide spectral range. Multiple scans are run for increased signal to noise when sample limited.

UNH's fourier transform infrared spectrometer.


The Thermo Nicolet iS10 FTIR is a general-purpose instrument designed for easy operation using OMNIC 9.11 (2019) software. The resolution of the spectrometer is 0.4 cm-1, and the spectral range is 7800 to 350 cm-1. The sample chamber and optics are purged with air with a dew point of -95 F. We also have a diamond ATR accessory with a spectral range cutoff of 525 cm-1 for use with most samples.
