Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy

ftir01The GeoAnalytical Lab houses a Perkin-Elmer Spectrum GX FTIR, used to obtain high-quality infrared spectra of geological materials.

In addition to the main optical bench used for conventionally prepared samples, a microscope attachment allows in-situ study of small objects (<100 microns).

ftir02The instrument is chiefly employed for the determination of water concentrations in volcanic glasses and nominally anhydrous minerals.
