The MicromATR Vision™ from Czitek

Features

  • Highest throughout, cost effective diamond ATR accessory
  • Sample viewing and image capture are completely integrated
  • Versatile macro- and micro-sample ATR analysis
  • Complete mid- and far-IR spectral range
  • Kinematic sample plates provide optimal sample position
  • Compatible with a broad range of ATR crystal plates

The new product MicromATR Vision provides the highest optical throughput available in a monolithic diamond ATR accessory. The sample range increases from the macro-scale to the micro-scale because of the small diameter of the crystal. The viewing optics with illumination through the diamond ATR crystal are integrated into the system, allowing the selection of separate sample features and seeing if sample contact has been made.

The MicromATR Vision makes sampling rapid and inexpensive. The pressure clamp works smoothly to ensure high and uniform pressure is applied on the sample, achieving high quality ATR spectra even from difficult samples.

The diamond crystal plate, recommended for most applications, provides a scratchproof sampling surface. The Diamond XR plate offers complete mid- and far-IR spectral range and the sample can be viewed through the crystal. The Diamond HT (high throughput) version provides the highest IR signal and signal-to-noise ratio for difficult samples.

Other available crystal plates for the MicromATR Vision include germanium for high refractive index samples, Diamond 3X (3 reflection) and Diamond 9X (9 reflection) crystal plates (limited pressure) for low concentration samples. Crystal plates can be changed easily as they are kinematic and no alignment, tools, or screws are required. Crystal plates from some other manufacturers are also compatible with the MicromATR Vision.
