New All-purpose Diamond ATR

Make IRIS, the newest diamond ATR offered by PIKE Technologies, your go-to FTIR accessory. It is designed to make sampling easy. You can expect high-quality spectra covering a wide range of samples from powders, gels, liquids, solids and more. It is idea for research, QA/QC and sample identification.

The backbone of the IRIS is its high-precision optics. IRIS’ powered mirrors have been designed and processed using diamond-turning technology to achieve optimal performance. All mirrors are gold-coated for maximum reflectivity.

The small monolithic diamond, 2-mm diameter, offers the ultimate sampling surface for most all samples. It provides extreme hardness, and is suitable for testing samples with a pH between 1-14. The unique PTFE seal between the diamond and the mounting plate adds to IRIS’ universal applicability for the analysis of strong organic solvents and caustic samples due to the inertness of PTFE.

IRIS may be configured with our standard diamond having a spectral range of 4000 – 400 cm-1, or the extended spectral range diamond, which allows for far-IR measurements. To provide the most flexibility, IRIS may also be fitted with a Ge ATR plate for measuring high refractive index samples such as carbon-filled rubbers, oxides, aluminas and minerals.

IRIS ATR sampling tools are optional. A liquid retainer and volatiles cover set offers a trough configuration while the cover reduces the amount of evaporation while collecting IR spectra of highly volatile liquid samples. The flow-through attachment allows for continuous flow spectral monitoring, and is ideal for containing samples that pose a hazard or degrade when exposed to ambient conditions.
