Optical Spectroscopy Instrumentation

  Jasco V-570 UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer with INS-470 Integrating Sphere Attachment

  • Obtain the absorption, percent transmittance, or percent reflectance spectrum of a solution in the range 190-2500 nm.
  • Dual-beam for beam intensity fluctuations.
  • The integrating sphere attachment is designed to measure the transmittance and reflectance of a sample that diffuses light rather than absorbs light. Can be used for solids or dispersed particles in solution. With the integrating sphere attachment, can scan from 220 nm-2,000 nm.

  Jasco FP-6500 Spectrofluorometer

  • Collects emission or excitation spectrum in the range 200 to 850 nm.

  Varian Scimitar FT-IR

  • Mid-IR detectors, beam splitters, and filters.
  • ATR module and salt plate holders available.
  • Qualitative analysis of functional groups only.

  Perkin Elmer Polarimeter

  • 100 mm cell paths available.
  • Na or Hg lamps with adjustable aperture.
  • Find specific rotation of chiral molecules or enantiomeric excess if specific rotation is known.

  Shimadzu Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer

  • The energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer is a non-destructive analytical technique to determine elemental composition.
  • Bulk solids, powders, films, and liquid samples can be used. For metals of any form 100 µm of thickness is needed. For plastics, 3 mm

  Perkin-Elmer AAnalyst 700 Atomic Absorption Spectrometer

  • Atomic absorption spectrometer for elemental analysis. Several hallow cathodes provided for detection of over 30 elements.
  • Automated motorized atomizer exchange to switch between flame and graphite furnace.
  • Autosampler for graphite furnace.

Malvern Panalytical Zetasizer Nano ZS

  • Determines particle sizes suspended in solution in the range of 0.3 nm to 10 µm
  • 4 mW 633 nm laser
  • Temperature range of cuvette compartment, 0 to 90 °C
  • Measurement angles 13° and 173°
