Features and Benefits

Accessories and Applications

More Information

  • Captures and stores multiple images with the single press of a button
  • Quick operation with tablet and powder accessories (ideal in pharma labs)
  • Allows users to define, store and recall custom sample templates and set up multiple samples or sample areas
  • Shows most relevant areas of sample
Optional ATR FTIR Imaging Accessory
The Optional ATR FTIR Imaging accessory of the Spotlight 400 offers easy spectroscopic access to challenging samples that are hard to image in reflection and transmission or have confusing depth structure. The technique involves pressing the sample against an ATR crystal illuminated by an infrared beam from a spectrometer.
  • Captures infrared spectral images with a spectral resolution up to 4x higher compared to conventional reflectance or transmission imaging
  • Images up to 400x larger without repositioning or stitching
  • Optimum clarity with widest spectral range
  • Effective pixel size of 1.56 µ exceeds the limitations of traditional IR
  • Sample area of 600 microns in diameter
  • Geranium crystal with refractive index of 4.01 for excellent spatial resolution and shallow sample penetration for clear and sharp images
Additional Accessories and Options
  • Standard MIR system with LiTaO3 detector
  • MIR system with temperature-stabilized DTGS detector
  • MIR system with CsI optics to enable the Frontier to sample over a spectral range of 7,800-250 cm-1
  • MCT wide-range array option provides rapid IR imaging coverage to ca 580cm-1 for improved polymer and inorganics mapping, and a unique InGaAs linear array option for highest fidelity NIR hyperspectral imaging requiring no liquid nitrogen cooling
Extra Options
  • PC with Windows 7 and stage controller
  • AutoATR objective
  • NIR reflectance accessory
  • Microscopy polarizer kit
  • Heated stage accessory
  • Micro-sampling tool kit
