Two of the biggest problems in IR spectroscopy are poor spatial resolution, and sample preparation requirements to avoid traditional ATR contact-related limitations. Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp is overcoming both of these limitations with a breakthrough technology based on optical photothermal IR spectroscopy (O-PTIR). This webinar discusses O-PTIR and its major benefits in the field of IR spectroscopy, including:

  • Sub-micron spatial resolution
  • Transmission FTIR quality spectra in reflection mode on thick samples
  • Non-contact optical technique with none of the limitations of ATR
  • Spatial resolution and sample preparation advantages found in Raman technology, with IR sensitivity
  • Works on any sample prepared for IR or Raman spectroscopy
