The IRT-1000 in-compartment FTIR microscope is designed to provide simple analysis of microscopic samples with the high performance found in more complex FTIR microscopes.
The IRT-1000 is a compact and easy to use in-compartment microscope that can be used with either the FT/IR-4000 and FT/IR-6000 series FTIR instruments. The microscope can be installed in the sample compartment in seconds without adjustment or optical alignment. The optical design provides excellent throughput for highly sensitive measurements of samples as small as 20 microns. The IRT-1000 can be operated with both the integrated touch panel and a PC using Spectra Manager™ II Suite. The sample is observed with an integrated color CCD camera and a 5 inch TFT color LCD monitor. and through the imaging function in Spectra Manager II JASCO’s unique ATOS (Aperture Through Optical System) provides simultaneous viewing of the sample image and sampling location specified by an aperture.

An optional purge casing can be used to eliminate interference from atmospheric CO2 and water vapor bands.
Three types of optional ATR objectives are available, selecting from ZnSe, Ge, and Diamond crystal elements. An optional pressure sensor (recommended) to protect the ATR objective is also available.
Liquid sample holder
The liquid sample holder includes three standard spacers, 0.1, 0.05 and 0.025 mm pathlengths for liquid sample analyses.
Powder sample holder
The powder sample holder can be use for diffuse reflectance measurements of powdered samples mixed with KBr. Up to five samples can be loaded onto the holder.
